He is renowned for his multi-faceted characters, who are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human. His writing influenced many subsequent novelists such as Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Gustave Flaubert, Henry James, and William Faulkner. Many of Balzacs works have been made into or have inspired films, and they are a continuing source of inspiration for writers, filmmakers and critics.Cousin Betty is an 1846 novel set in mid-19th century Paris, telling the story of an unmarried middle-aged woman who plots the destruction of her extended family.

Bette works with Valérie Marneffe, an unhappily married young lady, to seduce and torment a series of men. The book is part of the Scènes de la vie parisienne section of Balzacs novel sequence La Comédie humaine (The Human Comedy).This edition of Cousin Betty is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and images of Balzac.
