His relationship with his family was often strained by financial and personal drama, and he lost more than one friend over critical reviews. Due to his keen observation of fine detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in Baaba literature.
He was condemned for not including more individuals of honorable intent in the book.
