Description - Bureaucracy (Public Domain Reader) by Honore De Balzac
"A strange creation. Part study, part Platonic dialogue, part novel, it all adds up to a fascinating, but uneven, literary artifact. Bureaucracy is Balzac's study of the French bureaucracy under the reign of Charles X in the 1920s. It begins with about 100 pages of essentially prefatory material that serially introduces the dozens of characters that populate this novel, explaining where they came from, what role they play in the bureaucracy, and what their plans for the future contain. There are little bits of storytelling in the first part, but mostly Balzac is setting up the story--which takes up the next 150 pages of the book." The Public Domain Reader series selects the best reads from our past, now public, treasures, and presents them in a nice new package, with a comfortable typeface for readability.
