The Firm of Nucingen Author: Honore de Balzac Translator: James Waring Release Date: February 22, [EBook ] Language: English Character set encoding: This Scene isnotlaid at Very's, but in snug quarters, which for reasons of my own I forbear to specify. We had come as far as the roast, however, and still we had no neighbors; no sound came from the next room save the crackling of the fire.
But when the clock struck eight, we heard voices and noisy footsteps; the waiters brought candles. Evidently there was a party assembled in the next room, and at the first words I knew at once with whom we had to do—four bold cormorants as ever sprang from the foam on the crests of the ever-rising waves of this present generation—four pleasant young fellows whose existence was problematical, since they were not known to possess either stock or landed estates, yet they lived, and lived well.
These ingeniouscondottieriof a modern industrialism, that has come to be the most ruthless of all warfares, leave anxieties to their creditors, and keep the pleasures for themselves. They are careful for nothing, save dress.
Still with the courage of the Jean Bart order, that will smoke cigars on a barrel of powder perhaps by way of keeping up their characterwith a quizzing humor that outdoes the minor newspapers, sparing no one, not even themselves; clear-sighted, wary, keen after business, grasping yet open handed, envious yet self-complacent, profound politicians by fits and starts, analyzing everything, guessing everything—not one of these in question as yet had contrived to make his way in the world which they chose for their scene of operations.
Only one of the four, indeed, had succeeded in coming as far as the foot of the ladder. To have money is nothing; the self-made man only finds out all that he lacks after six months of flatteries.
Andoche Finot, the self-made man in question, stiff, taciturn, cold, and dull-witted, possessed the sort of spirit which will not shrink from groveling before any creature that may be of use to him, and the cunning to be insolent when he needs a man no longer.
Like one of the grotesque figures in the ballet inGustave, he was a marquis behind, a boor in front. And this high-priest of commerce had a following. Emile Blondet, Journalist, with abundance of intellectual power, reckless, brilliant, and indolent, could do anything that he chose, yet he submitted to be exploited with his eyes open.
Treacherous or kind upon impulse, a man to love, but not to respect; quick-witted as asoubrette, unable to refuse his pen to any one that asked, or his heart to the first that would borrow it, Emile was the most fascinating of those light-of-loves of whom a fantastic modern wit declared that "he liked them better in satin slippers than in boots.
He was always between wind and water, keeping himself afloat by his bold, sudden strokes and the nervous energy of his play. Hither and thither he would swim over the vast sea of interests in Paris, in quest of some little isle that should be so far a debatable land that he might abide upon it.
Clearly Couture was not in his proper place. As for the fourth and most malicious personage, his name will be enough—it was Bixiou!
Bixiou had the whole history of his own times at his finger-ends, more particularly its scandalous chronicle, embellished by added waggeries of his own. He sprang like a clown upon everybody's back, only to do his utmost to leave the executioner's brand upon every pair of shoulders.
The first cravings of gluttony satisfied, our neighbors reached the stage at which we also had arrived, to wit, the dessert; and, as we made no sign, they believed that they were alone. Thanks to the champagne, the talk grew confidential as they dallied with the dessert amid the cigar smoke.
Their table-talk was full of bitter irony which turns a jest into a sneer; it told of the exhaustion of souls given over to themselves; of lives with no end in view but the satisfaction of self—of egoism induced by these times of peace in which we live. I can think of nothing like it save a pamphlet against mankind at large which Diderot was afraid to publish, a book that bares man's breast simply to expose the plague-sores upon it.
After some target practice at the outer circle of their acquaintances, they turned their ill-natured shafts at their intimate friends. With a sign I explained my wish to stay and listen as soon as Bixiou took up his parable, as will shortly be seen. And so we listened to one of those terrific improvisations which won that artist such a name among a certain set of seared and jaded spirits; and often interrupted and resumed though it was, memory serves me as a reporter of it.
The opinions expressed and the form of expression lie alike outside the conditions of literature. It was, more properly speaking, a medley of sinister revelations that paint our age, to which indeed no other kind of story should be told; and, besides, I throw all the responsibility upon the principal speaker.
The pantomime and the gestures that accompanied Bixiou's changes of voice, as he acted the parts of the various persons, must have been perfect, judging by the applause and admiring comments that broke from his audience of three.
His father's property was not worth a thousand crowns; he had two sisters and a brother on his hands, and now——" "Now he has an income of forty thousand livres," continued Finot; "his sisters had a handsome fortune apiece and married into noble families; he leaves his mother a life interest in the property——" "Even in I have known him without a penny," said Blondet.
He broke decently with Delphine three years ago; he will not marry except on good grounds; and he may marry a girl of noble family. The chap had the sense to take up with a wealthy woman.Belgium Commercieel Afgevaardigde bij Idé Coffee Systems Food & Beverages Education Management Assistant Bachelor's degree Experience Idé Coffee Systems February - Present Fair Trade Original - Skills Marketing Communications, Change Management, Dutch, B2B, Business Strategy, FMCG, Corporate Social, Coaching, Sustainability.
