    Pere Goriot

  1. Author: Balzac, Honore de
    Title: Pere Goriot
    Date: 1835
    Genre: fiction
    Note Relating to Cather: In a Nebraska State Journal piece on artists' private lives, Cather writes, "It is better that we do not know what the last chapter of the Pere Goriot cost Balzac, what the third chapter [act?] of Phaedra cost Rachel." In Collected Short Fiction 1892-1912, the roomers speculate about Count de Koch as the roomers do about Balzac's Goriot in "The Count of Crow's Nest."
