Balzac, Honoré de: Sarrasine, v.1.05 Sept 2007

Honoré de Balzac, Sarrasine (1830), translated by Clara Bell.
This is a long-ish short story. I've added a couple of pictures, a TOC, and the French accents.

A young woman in a Parisian salon is startled by a sinister old man, to whom the hosts are very deferential. A young man tells her a story of sexual intrigue and 18th-century gender-bending to explain the old man's presence.

The story is part of Balzac's Comedie Humaine.
Later, in 1970, Roland Barthes used it to expound his structuralist theories in 'S/Z'.
