Eugenia Grandet fu pubblicato nel 1833, e tradotto in italiano da Grazia Deledda. Il personaggio di papà Grandet è l'archetipo dell'avaro, e la figlia, Eugenia, cresciuta sotto il suo regime monastico, riscatta la sua eredità genetica diventando un fiore purissimo e immacolato nel cuore della provincia Francese, forse proprio perché lontana dall'influenza della morale parigina. Un capolavoro della letteratura del maestro della letteratura francese del 1800.

Cornice musicale di Fryderyk Chopin.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 2/18/2014

    " Clunky. Pere Goriot is better. Balzac likes caricatures of people, but he also likes realism, and that creates problems I think. But I liked it. The French do this "society novel" thing better than the English. Because in France it ends in tears. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 BookAddict | 1/22/2014

    " I cant believe I happened to chance buying this book at a closing down sale. Why haven't I seen it on any of the must read classics book lists? I loved this book. If you love your classics you must read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric | 1/22/2014

    " My first Balzac, not as excellent as Zola, but then, who is? Still an engaging read. Definitely 19th century in its attitudes to gender, lots of tears and other similar romantic elements, also some incredible descriptive passages. I'll probably be back for more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/19/2014

    " Brilliant novel -- miser, sheltered young daughter, downtrodden wife, early 1800s, provincial France. Translated by Sylvia Raphael. Outstanding forward by Christopher Prendergast. Magnificent characterizations. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthia | 1/3/2014

    " Avarice trumps love--Balzac is so 21st century. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nanar | 12/13/2013

    " quel livre magnifique ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Seaghan Brien | 12/1/2013

    " Is actually the George Saintsbury edition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 11/28/2013

    " About a father and his daughter "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 11/23/2013

    " Chilling. I would like to reread this back-to-back with "Pere Goriot." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Riodelmartians | 9/20/2013

    " Portrait of a family and the wages of greed in a provincial setting. Something of a fable that demonstrates that love beats out financial security every time, but the lesson is only learned after love is lost. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Josh | 9/4/2013

    " I have to admit, I greatly prefer Barthelme's version of the story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lois | 8/15/2013

    " I read this years and years ago. Remember it as quite wonderful. NOTE: Eugenie Grandet is the assumed name of Sylvie, one of the characters in "A Murder in Bellville." That's what made me decide to reread. One good thing leads to another! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jasperzelf | 7/13/2013

    " Mooi! Een realistische roman, maar dan uit 1833! Het leest superlekker weg en je krijgt wel een soort intiem inkijkje in hoe leute toen leefden. En jeetje wat een tragiek allemaal! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 5/1/2013

    " Read this in the original French in my French reading class in college. I don't remember very much about it due to the fact that I spent far more time looking up vocabulary and slightly archaic tenses than I did analyzing the story, so I should probably re-read this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 3/24/2013

    " The story of an old miser, and the daughter, whose life and love he ruins with his greed. Balzac knew how to paint hopeful characters within a very cynical world, which makes his stories stay timely. If you've never read Balzac, this wouldn't be a bad one to start with. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine Delors | 11/10/2012

    " The best Balzac? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben Loory | 10/28/2012

    " never read any balzac before. and i never will again. "
