Le Cousin Pons Pdf

Le Cousin Pons (French pronunciation: [lə kuzɛ̃ pɔ̃s]) is one of the last of the 94 works of Honoré de Balzac’s Comédie humaine, which are in novel and short story form. Begun in 1846 as a novella or long short story, it was envisaged as one part of a diptych, Les Parents pauvres (The Poor Relations), the other part of which was La Cousine Bette (Cousin Bette). The book was originally published as a serial in Le Constitutionnel. The novella grew in 1847 into a full-length novel, with a male poor relation, Pons, like its subject, whereas La Cousine Bette describes the female aspect of that subordinate relationship. The novels form a diptych. Le Cousin Pons was classified by Balzac as the second episode of Les Parents pauvres, the first episode being La Cousine Bette. Especially admired by Paul Bourget, it is one of the very greatest of his novels.

Le Cousin Pons Summary

The novella was based on a short story by an acquaintance of Balzac, Albéric Second, as Tim Farrant has demonstrated.[1] Its original title was to have been “Le Parasite”. Sylvain Pons, a musician in a Parisian boulevard orchestra, has a close friend in another musician from the orchestra, the German pianist Wilhelm Schmucke. They lodge with Mme Cabot but Pons – unlike Schmucke – has two failings: his passion (which is almost a mania) for collecting works of art and his passion for good food. Schmucke, on the other hand, has only one passion, his affection for Pons. Pons, being a gourmet, much enjoys dining regularly with his wealthy lawyer cousins M. and Mme Camusot de Marville, for their food is more interesting than Mme Cabot’s and full of gastronomic surprises. To remain on good terms with the Camusots and to repay their favor, he tries to find a bridegroom for their unappealing only child Cécile. When this ill-considered marriage project falls through, Pons is banished from the house.
