    A tragedy in disguise.This story takes place in the town of Saumur That is where Eug nie and her normal family live Her father is a miserly former cooper who hides his fortune from her wife and daughter and forces them to live in an old and frozen house, which he doesn t want to repair because, well, money must be spent and that is exactly what he tries to avoid Reading this novel made me chuckle several times because let s face it, we have all met a Felix Grandet in real life, at least once A person who accumulates money simply to see its splendor on the table He needs to know money is there so he can feel safe He doesn t have a coat to cope with a freezing afternoon but he sure feels secure while contemplating a pile of money somewhere under his roof The way those people think it is truly remarkable They want to make a lot of money, they don t want to spend a dime and before they realize, their lives are over They merely existed, for they have never lived Unfortunately, they can t take their wealth to the grave or wherever we go after we part from this world If there is such a place From a practical point of view, only the heirs might ...

    Classic English literature has seen some memorable stone hearted misers in it s time, but they pale in comparison to Balzac s provincial Midas, Monsieur Grandet, father of the long suffering Eug nie Grandet s wealth is legendary in status, and, inevitably, when plucky Charles, his elegant, dapper nephew from Paris, turns up, Eug nie, accustomed to her father s spartan frugality, is hopelessly smitten with him One of the Granddaddies of realist literature, Balzac paints a tragic figure at the centre of the novel, the sweet and titular Eug nie, the miser s once innocent offspring and her sad story is a cautionary one about what happens when an obsession with lucre and social position supplants human affection She inherits her father s financial savvy and avaricious ways along with his fortune but is miserably shortchanged in the love department Charles arrives at their woefully rundown house in the Loire Valley town of Saumur, where Eug nie lives with her pathologically tightfisted short and stocky father, downtrodden mother who felt like an old cobweb, and their overworked panic stricken servant, Nanon While Eug nie and her mother have no idea how rich F lix Grandet actually is, his banker, des Grassins, and his notary, Cruchot, aren t quite so clueless The two men and their families jockey shamelessly for the old man s favour and Eug nie s hand.Eug nie regards herself, her gloomy home, ...

    In the work Eug nie Grandet, Honor de Balzac paints an eloquent portrait of nineteenth century French society, as well as the prevailing materialism of the time.The story centers on the life of the Grandet family, circumscribed to the unreasonable avarice of their progenitor, who is characterized as an unscrupulous man and who values to the point of exhaustion the brilliance and tinkling of money, symbol of his social and financial ascent The sobriety of Eugenia s father is such that he rations all the expenses of the house, causing the family to go through necessities.One day, however, a cousin from Eugenia arrives from Paris, who thinks of pleasing her cousin, since a relationship between the two would allow him to live in an open manner.The arrival of Carlos in the bosom of this family causes in Eugenia a feeling that, until then, did not know, motivated, particularly, by its refinement and good taste Eugenia feels, therefore, the desire to please Carlos, which does not please her father.Meanwhile, Mr Grandet receives a suicide note from his brother, who was in bankruptcy, where he asks his brother to take care of his nephew, who is unaware of the true reason for his presence at his uncle s house.The arrival of Carlos in the bosom of this family causes in Eugenia a feeling that, until then, did not know, motivated, particularly, by its refinement and good taste Eugenia feels, therefore, the des...

    If you are to believe Balzac and Zola, how depressing life must have been in 19th century France This book is titled for Eugenie, the daughter of the Grandet family, but it should have been titled Grandet the Miser , because this was really his story, the story of Eugenie s father Felix He was a miser that even surpasses Dickens Scrooge in his miserliness You re thinking I didn ...

    Well, this book was kind of hard for me I guess I liked it, but I would have certainly appreciated it if I hadn t read others of Balzac s Com die Humaine I definitely liked P re Goriot, followed by Cousin Bette Balzac belongs to the school of European Realism He excellently draws French life of the first half of the 1800s In detail Every room and every face and every everything is described Nothing wrong with that, but third time around I didn t get anything new It was while writing this book that Balzac came up with the idea of the Com die Humaine In the book s second publication names were changed so characters here would appear again in other books I liked P re Goriot best because of the characters were of the less affluent classes Aspiring characters or criminals or medical students or landlords In that book there are quite simply characters from many different walks of life This book has fewer characters and there is one VERY central point being made The emphasis here is the importance of m o n e y You get nowhere without money Bonds and currency and gold and how money makes money is a central theme Bankruptcy versus liquidation A...

    Having never read Balzac, I had no sense of how human and intimate this story would be The delicacy of Balzac s descriptions of his heroine the way in which he tries to capture, without judgment, her emotional universe was really quite surprising and affecting To be able to document the first blush of love felt by a provincial, perhaps rather small minded, young woman with sensitivity and care is no simple task This felt far complex and thoughtful a treatment of that subject than anything I ve read that was published in the past ten years the supposed Golden Age of young adult fiction featuring complex heroines Otherwise, the rather small scenes of private life in the country, clearly influenced by Austen and her working of that little bit of Ivory, speak of much larger political, cultural, and social transformations in Restoration France Not knowing much about French history, I suppose I had never really stopped to consider the cynicism and disappointment that attended the period after the fall of Napoleon Witnessing the ways in which the Revolution scrambled political and social categories, then watching a Corsican military officer become Emperor, and, finally, seeing France humbled by the other Great Powers of Europe would really have been quite the mindf , wouldn t it have been And, Balzac s almost post modern suspicion of and boredom with Progress and its effects on morality, the family, and the small town were surprising to me All to say, this was a...
