From Notes to Literature, Volume One, by Theodor Adorno, translated by Sherry Weber Nicholson


"There is an anecdote according to which Balzac turned his back on the political events of the March Revolution (of 1848) and went to his desk, saying, 'Let's get back to reality', this anecdote describes him faithfully, even if it is apocryphal."
