Depicting the fatal clash between material desires and the liberating power of human passions, Honore de Balzac's Eugenie Grandet is translated with an introduction by M.A. Crawford in Penguin Classics. In a gloomy house in provincial Saumur, the miser Grandet lives with his wife and daughter, Eugenie, whose lives are stifled and overshadowed by his obsession with gold. Guarding his piles of glittering treasures and his only child equally closely, he will let no one near them. But when the arrival of her handsome cousin, Charles, awakens Eugenie's own desires, her passion brings her into a violent collision with her father that results in tragedy for all. Eugenie Grandet is one of the earliest and finest works in Balzac's Comedie humaine cycle, which portrays a society consumed by the struggle to amass wealth and achieve power. Here Grandet embodies both the passionate pursuit of money, and the human cost of avarice. M.A. Crawford's lucid translation is accompanied by an introduction discussing the irony and psychological insight of Balzac's characterization, the role of fate in the novel, its setting and historical background. - Amazon (summary for a later edition of this title)

36 editions published between 1892 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'argument qui réunit ces trois courts romans de 1834 est assez ténu, quoiqu'il ait tenu une place importante dans l'idée de Balzac. Le premier participe au fantastique social par le biais de la secte secrète et le dernier par le climat étrange et visionnaire qui le baigne. Ces deux récits forment écrin pour le deuxième qui demeure l'un des beaux romans d'amour de l'écrivain (le personnage principal fait partie des Treize). Édition avec dossier. [SDM]
