Violence is no stranger to heritage cinema. Balzac and violence: Representing history, space, sexuality and death in ‘La Comédie humaine’. In France, some of the most well-known heritage films produced since the 1980s have featured violence ranging from the graphic and disturbing to more innocent slapstick. In 1986, Claude Berri framed his adaptation of the Marcel Pagnol novel Jean de Florette between two violent deaths, the murder of the farmer Pique-Bouffigue, and the tragic demise of the eponymous hunchback, who dies as a result of his attempts to blast a well in the Provençal rock.

Violence is one of the main themes in the novels of Honoré de Balzac. Executions, murders, savagery and death accompany the conspiracies and the turbulence that characterise his post-Revolutionary times, from the Terror to the Napoleonic campaigns and then to the upheavals of 1830 and 1848. Despite the importance of violence in Balzac, this is the first book-length study of the topic. The book begins by tracing the links between violence and Balzac’s approach to the novel, not merely in terms of violent content, but, equally importantly, in terms of the form associated with that content. Form and content combine to perpetuate and naturalise violence and suffering. After charting examples of this combination in one of Balzac’s earliest fictions, the book moves on to the links between violence and history (Catherine de Médicis; the Terror), between violence and place (from his native Touraine to sickness in Paris), and between violence and gender/sexuality. It also examines the representation of violence in the form of spoken or written death. Throughout the analysis, the book asks the following question: do Balzac’s novels reinforce or counteract the literary text’s apparent love-affair with violence?
