      Honor de Balzac was a nineteenth century French novelist and playwright His magnum opus was a sequence of almost 100 novels and plays collectively entitled La Com die humaine, which presents a panorama of French life in the years after the fall of Napol on Bonaparte in 1815.Due to his keen observation of detail and unfiltered representation of society, Balzac is regarded as one of the founders of realism in European literature He is renowned for his multi faceted characters even his lesser characters are complex, morally ambiguous and fully human Inanimate objects are imbued with character as well the city of Paris, a backdrop for much of his writing, takes on many human qualities His writing influenced many famous authors, including the novelists Marcel Proust, mile Zola, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, Henry James and Jack Kerouac, as well as important philosophers such as Friedrich Engels Many of Balzac s works have been made into films, and they continue to inspire other writers.An enthusiastic reader and independent thinker as a child, Balzac had trouble adapting himself to the teaching style of his grammar school His willful nature caused trouble throughout his life, and frustrated his ambitions to succeed in the world of business When he finished school, Balzac was apprenticed as a legal clerk, but he turned his back on law after wearying of its inhumanity and banal routine Before and during his career as a writer, he attempted to be a publisher, printer, businessman, critic, and politician He failed in all of these efforts La Com die Humaine reflects his real life difficulties, and includes scenes from his own experience.Balzac suffered from health problems throughout his life, possibly due to his intense writing schedule His relationship with his family was often strained by financial and personal drama, and he lost than one friend over critical reviews In 1850, he married Ewelina Ha ska, his longtime paramour he died five months later.

    1. A tragedy in disguise.This story takes place in the town of Saumur That is where Eug nie and her normal family live Her father is a miserly former cooper who hides his fortune from her wife and daughter and forces them to live in an old and frozen house, which he doesn t want to repair because, well, money must be spent and that is exactly what he tries to avoid Reading this novel made me chuckle several times because let s face it, we have all met a Felix Grandet in real life, at least once A p [...]

    3. In the work Eug nie Grandet, Honor de Balzac paints an eloquent portrait of nineteenth century French society, as well as the prevailing materialism of the time.The story centers on the life of the Grandet family, circumscribed to the unreasonable avarice of their progenitor, who is characterized as an unscrupulous man and who values to the point of exhaustion the brilliance and tinkling of money, symbol of his social and financial ascent The sobriety of Eugenia s father is such that he rations [...]


    4. Well, this book was kind of hard for me I guess I liked it, but I would have certainly appreciated it if I hadn t read others of Balzac s Com die Humaine I definitely liked P re Goriot, followed by Cousin Bette Balzac belongs to the school of European Realism He excellently draws French life of the first half of the 1800s In detail Every room and every face and every everything is described Nothing wrong with that, but third time around I didn t get anything new It was while writing this book t [...]


    5. If you are to believe Balzac and Zola, how depressing life must have been in 19th century France This book is titled for Eugenie, the daughter of the Grandet family, but it should have been titled Grandet the Miser , because this was really his story, the story of Eugenie s father Felix He was a miser that even surpasses Dickens Scrooge in his miserliness You re thinking I didn t like this novel, but I did Like Zola, Balzac establishes his characters so vividly you can t help but become interest [...]


    6. Having never read Balzac, I had no sense of how human and intimate this story would be The delicacy of Balzac s descriptions of his heroine the way in which he tries to capture, without judgment, her emotional universe was really quite surprising and affecting To be able to document the first blush of love felt by a provincial, perhaps rather small minded, young woman with sensitivity and care is no simple task This felt far complex and thoughtful a treatment of that subject than anything I ve [...]


    7. Eugenie Grandet is a quiet tragedy The eponymous character is the quiet and industrious daughter of a miser His entire life is devoted to making money, even faking a stutter to put other people off their guard in business transactions Eugenie has known no other life every day, she and her mother sit in their freezing sitting room the fire can only be lit between November and April , mending and sewing For her, this is not unusual, and she accepts at face value her father s complaints that they [...]


    8. Note I read this novel in March April 2013 and posted a review in my Asia Sentinel blog on April 12, 2013 I ve just dug out the review from my files and am posting it here with some minor changes Date April 17, 2017 What is a miser The dictionary says it means either one of two types of persons 1 one who lives very meagerly in order to hoard money or 2 a greedy or avaricious person I ve lately read Honore de Balzac s famous novel Eugenie Grandet and am impressed with the author s perspicacious i [...]


    9. La vida es un negocio , dice el padre a su hija La vida, dir a yo, es un negocio en el que los intereses est n llamados a sepultarnos Balzac ha tocado todas las fibras de una vida anodina, cualquiera, como es la m a Violento relato Con sabidur a profunda, Honor de Balzac se permite evidenciar mediante un personaje monstruoso Grandet padre , como dir a Huxley, lo que implica el ideal burgu s in extremis desde la vida del tonelero Grandet, viejo avaro y despreciable que vive su vida en funci n de [...]



    10. What a brilliant piece of writing The detail used to describe each scene by Blazac paints a picture in your mind I am reminded of Tolstoy s War and Peace.The story of the saintly Eugenie trying to live under the thumb of her Miser father is pitiable but a solid read The life of Monsieur Grandet and his love of gold above all else seems painfully apt in this early part of the 21st century.A classic that holds a place of reverence on my bookshelf.My Rating 5 starsThis review first appeared princes [...]


    11. This was a delight Eugenie is no conniving female, spoiled brat, or cynical woman of the world Living in a small town in the wine region far from Paris, she is a sheltered girl, completely without artifice and eventually to become a very wealthy woman She doesn t know that however Her father is as miserly as they get His only goal in life is to acquire further wealth, and yes, he loves to see and count his gold Some of his financial shenanigans, as well as the currency references, went over my h [...]

    13. Pobre Eugenia, para m su vida es la historia de una tragedia, no estoy seguro qu exactamente quiso expresar Balzac, si el aburrimiento de la vida provinciana y sus limitaciones, si la pureza de alma y sentimientos o si la cruel realidad de la vida al tener aspiraciones tan fantasiosas fundadas en tan poco sentimiento, o el desenga o l gico por admirar lo nuevo y hermoso por fuera.Hay varias cosas que me aburrieron un poco, primero pues que justo he terminado de leer El jud o de Malta que tambi n [...]


    14. Ca subiect si ca nivel de abordare, se poate spune la prima vedere ca e o carte infantila In schimb, critica profunda si exacta a moravurilor in contrast cu frustrarea pe care am avut o parcurgand paginile si aprofundandu l tot mai mult pe mos Grandet face din Eugenie Grandet un roman obiectiv si educational de capatai.


    15. Classics, we are told, are books that stand the test of time that, even after the society that birthed them has passed away, continue to enthrall readers with their complex and relatable characters, their insight into universals of human nature, their artful command of language I read Eugenie Grandet in translation, so I won t attempt to pass judgment on its use of language Raphael s 1990 translation is acceptable though not impressive in its own right But the characters, the conceptions of huma [...]


    16. A heartclenching pain turner of a classic, a perfect manifesto for choosing love over money The French do desolation and hopelessness so well Must be the heat In certain respects, Eug nie gets off lightly She steals a kiss with her cousin before her bastard father packs him off to the Indies to get rich off slave plantations, and stays a virgin her whole life for that one moment of stolen love Nowadays, anyone marrying their cousin would be hounded out the hamlet, Daily Mails flung at their back [...]


    17. Other women bow their heads and suffer in silence they go their way dying, resigned, weeping, forgiving, praying, and recollecting, till they draw their last breath This is love, true love, the love of angels, the proud love which lives upon its anguish and dies of it 220 Poignant in true Balzacian style, Eug nie Grandet tells the story of a family headed by a cold hearted miser, who amasses fortunes while living as if he were poor Selfishness runs through the book, and the society which it desc [...]


    18. This book really made me sad The whole time I was reading it, I was sad and angry Sad because both Eugenie and her mother were victims of monsieur Grandet s insanity and angry because monsieur Grandet and Charles, and pretty much everyone else besides Eugenie lives and breathes his money It s irritating, infuriating even I understand that Balzac portraied the image of the fucked up society of those times, but the story is just plain boring and irritating Again Sorry.


    19. Si tuviera que definir en pocas palabras a este libro, usar a una frase bastante trillada pero no menos comunicativa es m s liviano que el aire.Tiene su raz n de ser, porque era una novela que se publicaba por entregas y que, por supuesto, necesitaba mantener en vilo al lector para que la comprara en varios sentidos de la palabra completa Y la verdad es que resulta Cuando cre a que pod a ser una mala elecci n para estas alturas del a o, en donde las neuronas quieren tomarse vacaciones, termin af [...]


    20. Another worthless, boring, classic with all the shittiness of the classics and much It s a long long story about an obsessed with money, pathetic old man, that thinks wealth is important than l i t e r a l l y anything, and plans to accumulate and money until the day he dies, even though he s old and rich already, and he doesn t even care about his offspring, and it s all incredibly pointless Basically all you ll read about is this The book contains few side stories which are all extremely, [...]


    21. Letto praticamente in contemporanea con Anna delle Cinque Citt di Bennett, Eugenie Grandet , una perla di romanzo che nasce un po con l intento che dar poi ispirazione anche al realista inglese, ovvero ritrarre con occhio disincantato scene della vita di provincia, al fine di tratteggiare i contorni degli aspetti pi sconosciuti del proprio paese Non pi solo grandi citt e mondanit tout l heure, ma anche e soprattutto ignoranza e grandi divergenze sociali Deliziosa Eugenie, ben tratteggiato Papa G [...]

Me da la impresi n de que si pudiera tomarme una p ldora m gica que tras un sue o repentino permitiera despertarme en un pueblo franc s del XIX, lo que me encontrar a ser a exactamente lo que describe Balzac en Eug nie Grandet.Lo deprimente del caso es que m s de 150 a os despu s de la publicaci n de la novela pr cticamente nada haya cambiado el af n por la acumulaci n de dinero sigue siendo la m xima que rige nuestra sociedad enferma el matrimonio no deja de ser un objetivo vital para muchas mu [...]

Since I had to spend hours sitting in the doctor s office this morning with my daughter, I took my kindle and got caught up in this story Talk about a love story full of intrigue and backstabbing and heartache.Eugenie is a lovely girl with an awful father He was a cask maker in a town that depended on the vineyards for survival From cask maker he progressed up society s ladder and soon was a wealthy man His big problem was he was so tight with his money His wife had brought money into the marria [...]


    24. El estilo narrativo del autor nos acerca, como desde detr s de una lupa, a una familia de provincias francesa cuyo padre lleva la figura del avaro hasta unos l mites grotescos El resto de los habitantes de su humilde casa su esposa, su hija y su criada viven al son de sus prohibiciones y limitaciones desde que sale el sol hasta que se pone, desconocedoras de que en realidad el t o Grandet guarda m s millones de los que podr a gastar Tras una breve introducci n, la llegada de su sobrino desde Par [...]

    26. I read this after a long, unfulfilling, opaque, modernist novel Suffice to say, my palate is cleansed As ever, Balzac, despite the fact that he couldn t write a decent sentence if you gave him a copy of Gide s collected works and told him you didn t mind if he plagiarized one, holds your attention by exaggerating everything to absurd dimensions, including his sense of his own importance You want to know what capitalism looks like It looks like this Grandet makes Scrooge look like some soft heart [...]


    27. Gli avari non credono nella vita futura, poich per essi il presente tutto, e questo stesso concetto diffonde una luce orribile sul mondo odierno, ove pi che mai il denaro domina leggi, politica e costumi Istituzioni, libri, uomini e dottrina cospirano insieme a scuotere la fede in un altra vita, fede su cui da diciotto secoli si basa l edifizio sociale Dopo illusioni perdute , un altro romanzo balzachiano in cui i protagonisti, al termine delle vicende narrate, si ritrovano senza illusioni E la [...]
