Excerpt from Droll Stories (Contes Drolatiques), Vol. 2: With Sarrasine, Etc

The second volume of the Contes Drolatiques opens with the far-famed Succubus, which, perhaps more than anything else written by Balzac, brought down upon him the malediction of the church. It is taken as being a faithful painting of the methods of the inquisition. The nai'vete of the manner of arranging the indictment and making the vic tim duly and legally amenable to the decrees of the Spiri tual court is excellently done.

The prologues and epilogues which follow the Droll Stories in this volume formed originally the prefaces and conclusions of the three series of ten stories each; they are here arranged in the order in which they were written.
