First published in 1834, Eugénie Grandet is one of Balzac's most famous novels. Originally part of the two volume Scènes de la vie de province, it was only published as a separate title in 1839. It is the story of greed, avarice, love and money set in the provincial town of Saumur and deals with many of Balzac's favourite themes. This new edition of Scènes de la vie de province - Eugénie Grandet is edited by Andrew Oliver, a well-known Balzac scholar. The text is that of the 1834 edition - the first time that the novel has been published in its original text since its first publication.
