Download Honoré de Balzac - Eugénie Grandet PDF eBookEugénie Grandet is novel by French author Honoré de Balzac published in 1883. Balzac is well known for his keen remark on details and his straightforward portrayal of society, and that qualities make the characters he created complex, all-around, and morally ambiguous—or in short, completely human. That’s the reason he is regarded as a pioneer in European realism and he has influenced many famous writers including Marcel Proust, Charles Dickens, Edgar Allan Poe, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, and Jack Kerouac.
In this wonderful classic book, Honoré de Balzac depicted the greediness of human, especially through the characters of Faleix and Eugénie Grandet. The main theme this novel tries to convey is that money holds tremendous power to corrupt everyone and resisting it is more or less futile. It is clearly in shown the life Eugénie—who at first is innocent—and her pursuit of love and pursuit of wealth. And wealth prevails.
