Eugénie Grandet


One of the earliest and most famous novels in Balzac's Com'edie humaine, Eug'enie Grandet portrays the fall of the Grandet household. In its record of financial acuity, the vicissitudes of the wine trade, and the social and economic consequences of the Revolution, we find a vigorous fictional document of the age.
