Balzac, Honoré de: Domestic Peace, v1, 15 Sept 2007.

Honoré de Balzac: Domestic Peace (La Paix du Ménage)
Translated by Ellen Marriage and Clara Bell
(1829)


Also translated as ‘Peace in the House’.


This is a short story of about 13,300 words.

Set in a ballroom in 1809, the height of Napoleon’s splendour. Madame de Soulanges has lost both her husband’s affections and some jewellery, which he has given to his mistress. With the help of an older woman she managed to retrieve both the husband and the jewel.

I have restored accents and italics, also added a picture.
