El Verdugo · Honoré de Balzac · English - [PDF] [ePub] [Kindle]
This short but gruesome story could have come from the imagination of Edgar Allan Poe, rather than Balzac. During the Napoleonic war in Spain, there's a failed rebellion. The ruling family are given an ultimatum by a sadistic general: one member of the family can live to continue the historic lineage on the condition that the survivor must personally behead, in public, the rest of his family!
The 19th romanticism around death comes to the fore as each family member wistfully thanks the execution This short but gruesome story could have come from the imagination of Edgar Allan Poe, rather than Balzac. The 19th romanticism around death comes to the fore as each family member wistfully thanks the executioner and wishes them love.
I found it an odd, but hypnotising tale.
Definitely one of Balzac's best so far. Jun 18, Ben rated it liked it. It deals with themes of war, violence, revenge and regret, while raising important ethical and philosophical questions. Among Balzac's early works, it was published around the same time as Les Chouans , but it's meatier than that work, despite the slimness of the story, bearing some similarities to another story dealing with an executioner, Balzac's "An Episode Under the Terror", which wouldn't follow until "El Verdugo" is a grisly story in the same vein as Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus.
