Eugenie Grandet pdf
Eugénie Grandet is an 1833 novel by French author Honoré de Balzac, about miserliness and how it is bequeathed from the father to the daughter, Eugénie, through her unsatisfying love attachment with her cousin. Balzac conceived his ambitious project, The Human Comedy, while writing Eugénie Grandet and incorporated it into the Comédie by revising the names of some of the characters in the second edition, which he also dedicated to Maria Du Fresnay, his then-lover, and mother of his daughter Marie-Caroline Du Fresnay, and, as was proved later on, the “real” Eugénie Grandet.
Eugenie Grandet Summary
Eugénie Grandet is set in the town of Saumur. Eugénie’s father Felix is a former cooper who has become wealthy through both business ventures and inheritance (having inherited the estates of his mother-in-law, grandfather-in-law, and grandmother all in one year). However, he is very miserly, and he, his wife, daughter, and their servant Nanon live in a run-down old house which he is too miserly to repair. His banker des Grassins wants Eugénie to marry his son Adolphe, and his lawyer Cruchot wants Eugénie to marry his nephew President Cruchot des Bonfons, both parties eyeing the inheritance from Felix. The two families constantly visit the Grandets to get Felix’s favor, and Felix, in turn, plays them off against each other for his own advantage.
