When Is it Enough

There's much to be said for enjoying Eugenie Grandet on a brilliant autumn day. That said, the dogmatic avarice of Father Grandet has struck me uncomfortable, especially with regards to my own family. With great haste, I will add that no one in my family suffered privation, nor is anyone in my family a cooper and winemaker.

Those familiar with this site know that I am a repentant sucker for melody in my prose. The rolling depicitions of the Grandet family are delightful. their austerity amid such wealth is a paen itself.
