Eugenie Grandet, daughter of a former cooper who made a fortune, leads a reclusive life in Saumur, subject to the wishes of a stingy and authoritarian father. The unexpected arrival of his cousin Charles, a sophisticated young Parisian, gives him a glimpse of possible happiness. But Balzac's novels are rarely those of accomplishment ... With this plunge into troubled waters, where souls and hearts are probed, the writer signs a "bourgeois tragedy without poison, dagger, or spilled blood ".
