Eugénie Grandet by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

22 editions published between 1925 and 1963 in 3 languages and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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)

"When Germain - a shy but handsome widower - is sent by his father-in-law to find himself a wife, he sets out on his journey with a heavy heart. The prospective spouse is said to be rich, with land and a tidy dowry. But Germain fears for the fate of his three angelic children - and for the state of his own bruised heart. Everything changes during his voyage - through a dark wood and around a haunted marsh - when Germain falls passionately in love with an impoverished young shepherdess. Should he follow his heart, and woo the girl he now loves? Or please his family by marrying a rich but disdainful widow?" "A love song to the French countryside - a romance of two simple hearts - The Devil's Pool is above all a paean to an antique language and way of life which, even by 1844, was being eroded by industrialisation and the inexorable expansion of a national identity."--Jacket
