Eugenie Grandet, with the protagonist Grandet's family life as the main theme and Eugenie's tragic love as the core contradiction, successfully portrays a cunning, greedy, and stingy capitalist image. Through his wealth history, he depicts the process of social wealth and power redistribution after the French Revolution, and tells the story of how the aristocratic industry gradually transferred to the hands of the bourgeoisie, and how the nouveau riche, covered in copper, became the object of worship for local elites and the masses.
