The description of geographical locations advances the story and plays a role in characterization, plot, and chronology: the geographical method is one of Balzac’s numerous muses. Delivering reality in fiction, geographical locations affect the semiotics of fiction especially. Geocritical analysis notably takes into consideration the bridge over the Loire as a symbol of Madame de La Baudraye’s passage from one state to another, symbolic geography and the turning point in the novel.
