The Black Sheep by Honore de; Adamson, Donald; Adamson, Donald Balzac ISBN 13: 9780140442373

ISBN 10: 0140442375

Paperback; Uk: Penguin Classics, 1976-08-26; ISBN-13: 978-0140442373

Philippe and Joseph Bridau are two extremely different brothers. The elder, Philippe, is a superficially heroic soldier and adored by their mother Agathe. He is nonetheless a bitter figure, secretly gambling away her savings after a brief but glorious career in Napoleon's army. His younger brother Joseph, meanwhile, is fundamentally virtuous - but their mother is blinded to his kindness by her disapproval of his life as an artist. Foolish and prejudiced, Agathe lives on unaware that she is being cynically manipulated by her own favourite child, but will she ever discover which of her sons is truly the black sheep of the family? A dazzling depiction of the power of money and the cruelty of life in nineteenth-century France, The Black Sheep compellingly explores is a compelling exploration of the nature of deceit.

Translated from the French & With An Introduction by Donald Adamson. 339 pages. paperback. L237. The cover shows a detail from 'Portrait of an Artist in his Studio' by Theodore Gericault. FROM THE PUBLISHER - The fight for an inheritance is a recurrent theme in Balzac’s work. In THE BLACK SHEEP he describes the struggle of two brothers, Joseph and Philippe Bridau, one an artist and the other an ex-officer, to recover their family fortune. The novel culminates in a duel of wits and ruthlessness between two notable villains, of the kind at which Balzac excels. Superior cunning triumphs where virtue fails, but at a price.
