The Lost Illusions (original title in French: Illusions perdues)is an Honoré de Balzac novel that belongs to his series entitled The Human Comedy. It was originally published in three parts between 1836 and 1843,whose titles were: les Deux Poétes ("The Two Poets") ( A Grand Homme de province , Paris ("A Great Man of Provinces in Paris") and "Eve and David"). It is part of the large set of his studies of customs, and more specifically of his "Scenes of ProvincialLife" (Srénes de la vie de province).


It chronicles the effort and misery of a young French provincial named Lucien de Rubempré or Lucien Chardon,who travels to Paris in search of the glory of literature and poetry. Their hopes are soon dashed by discovering the loan world of publishing and the difficulties of getting a chance. This, along with his pride and weakness for luxury and annoyances, cause him to fail in his innocent purpose of living in his literature, and leads him to thicken the list of the 'lost illusions' of as many young poets as he does.
