    Do you have an illustration of Gobseck? He’s my favourite character although I haven’t read much Balzac so far.


  2. I’m sure I must, how could he possibly be left out, lol. I’ll put him on the top of the list to be next.

    He’s not my very favorite, but I really like him. And he’s not all bad either!

      Brilliant. I loved the quote from Gobseck: ‘I like to soil the carpets of the rich, not out of spite but to make them feel the claw of necessity.’
