By Honoré de Balzac
« Un lac est plein d’amour ! » s’écrie Rosalie en ouvrant sa fenêtre sur « los angeles belle nappe d’eau » des Rouxey. « Ils se sont aimés devant des lacs ! » Ils, c’est le couple d’amants que forment Albert, jeune avocat parisien exilé à Besançon, et Francesca, une belle duchesse italienne. Rosalie s’est juré de les désunir. Albert Savarus est une histoire d’amour et de fureur, mais comme toujours chez Balzac, l. a. ardour s’inscrit dans le réel : le mariage bute sur l. a. différence de classe et de fortune, les belles promesses ne résistent pas à l’épreuve du temps, le romantisme se fracasse sur los angeles politique. Cruelle désillusion pour qui voulait posséder l’absolu ! N’est-ce pas ce que Balzac pressent pour lui-même en 1842, un des moments les plus amers de sa vie ? En créant l’émouvant personnage d’Albert, son double, miné par l’attente et l’usure du désir, il espère exorciser un destin redouté. Préface, notes et file de Jacqueline Milhit.
