Woven from the threads of biography, "Beatrix" is a tapestry of the faces of love. The idea for the novel sprang from a visit with the feminist writer George Sand in 1838, during which Balzac learned of her early years, her disappointing affair with Jules Sandeau, and her triangular relationship with Marie d'Agoult and Franz Liszt. From this novel emerges one of Balzac's central themes - sacrifice in love: sacrifice of happiness, ofwealth, of health, even of life.
