Description

Oppressed by the exacting miserliness of her father, Eug 'enie Grandet erroneously see the arrival of her penniless Parisian cousin Charles as her means of escape. Balzac was obsessed with the fate of his heroine and this passionate intensity is evident throughout the novel, one of the earliest and greatest of his Com 'edie humain . Exploring provincial claustrophobia, financial acuity, and the social and economic consequences of the Revolution, Eug 'enie Grandet is both a vigorous fictional document of its age and an engrossing tale for modern readers. This book is intended for general; students from 6th Form upwards following courses on French literature, comparative literature, the novel, French social and economic history.show more
