...Balzac. II. Critical Analysis of Realism Realism and Naturalism have been tossed back and forth like unworthy coins since they are not substantially evident (Dargan 350). The authority to use these terms interchangeably causes further confusion. To understand the purpose these terms serve presently, it necessitates definition and discrimination, and on the entire English literature critics to leave an individual with a justifiable conviction to make between the two terms a time as well as degree distinction.

The point of our otherwise absurd speculative fable is that it catches something fundamental in the nature of Balzac's artistic energies and commitments --namely, an intensity of identification which not only blurs the distinction between imagination and reality, but also questions the hierarchy whereby the former is made subordinate to the latter. Not the least of the paradoxes of Balzac is that he is the great 'realist' who lived his creations as if they were themselves more real than reality. Beyond these similarities in detail/plot, Eugenie and Eugnie may well be brought together in the reader's mind... Eugenie Grandet Eugnie Grandet was one of the few Balzac...
