Buy As Gift. Overview Zweig devoted ten years of research and writing to Balzac, which he regarded as his crowning achievement. This late work reads like a picaresque novel, with Balzac's quest for "a woman with a fortune" and recurrent episodes of the author chasing an elusive pot of gold driving the story.
This biography of one classic author by another is filled with Zweig's characteristic psychological insights. He portrays the energy and "exuberance of imagination" that produced some two thousand characters in La comédie humaine, as well as the daily details of the coffee-chugging writer's life, his manic writing schedule, method of correcting proofs, dealing with publishers and reviewers, signing contracts, doing marketing and publicity.

Pero que en realidad dibujaban el camino de una huida y el camino de un naufragio personal. No obstante esa era la moral no sólo de Balzac sino de la época que le tocó vivir y la moral de los personajes que pueblan su literatura, personajes intrigantes, abyectos y egoístas. Por eso intentó que esta biografía fuera su gran obra. El hecho de que apareciera póstumamente, después del suicidio de Zweig, y que fuera ordenada y revisada por Richardt Friedenthal, indica que dada la vastedad del proyecto estaba destinado a quedar inconcluso.
Sin embargo, lo que debemos reconocer es el pulso que en él se echan dos gigantes de nuestra literatura y cómo uno busca en el otro el pasmo de donde nació aquella fuerza creadora, aquélla que supo retratar vigorosa y fielmente las costuras y las obsesiones de la sociedad de su tiempo.
