Red and Black : a New Translation, Backgrounds and Sources, Criticism by Stendhal( Book )

1,306 editions published between 1830 and 2015 in 34 languages and held by 11,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Handsome and ambitious, Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble peasant origins and make something of his life-by adopting the code of hypocrisy by which his society operates. Julien ultimately commits a crime-out of passion, principle, or insanity-that will bring about his downfall. The Red and the Black is a lively, satirical picture of French Restoration society after Waterloo, riddled with corruption, greed, and ennui. The complex, sympathetic portrayal of Julien, the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions, makes him Stendhal's most brilliant and human creation-and one of the greatest characters in European literature."--Page 4 of cover
De l'amour by Stendhal( Book )

592 editions published between 1800 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 3,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A timeless treatise on the unique power of human emotion, Stendhal's "Love" is translated by Gilbert and Suzanne Sale with an introduction by Jean Stewart and B.C.J.G. "Knight" in "Penguin Classics". In 1818, when he was in his mid-thirties, Stendhal met and fell passionately in love with the beautiful Mathilde Dembowski. She, however, was quick to make it clear that she did not return his affections, and in his despair he turned to the written word to exorcise his love and explain his feelings. The result is an intensely personal dissection of the process of falling - and being - in love: a unique blend of poetry, anecdote, philosophy, psychology and social observation. Bringing together the conflicting sides of his nature, the deeply emotional and the coolly analytical, Stendhal created a work that is both acutely personal and universally applicable. This translation retains all the colour and passion of the original and is accompanied buy the author's original prefaces and appendices. In their introduction, Jean Stewart and B.C.J.G. "Knight" discuss the relationship between Stendhal and his beloved and explore his views on feminism, education and society. Stendhal (1783-1842) was the pseudonym of Henri Marie Beyle, born and raised in Grenoble. Offered a post in the Ministry of War, from 1800 onwards he followed Napoleon's campaigns throughout Europe before retiring to Italy. Here, as 'Stendhal', he began writing on art, music and travel. Though not well-received during his lifetime, his work, including "The Red and the Black" (1830) and "The Charterhouse of Parma" (1839), now places him among the pioneers of nineteenth-century literary realism. If you enjoyed "Love", you might like Gustave Flaubert's "Sentimental Education", also available in "Penguin Classics". "The single most insightful book on the role of imagination on love". (John Armstrong, author of "Conditions of Love: The Philosophy of Intimacy")."--Book description, Amazon.com
The red and the black by Stendhal( Book )

69 editions published between 1926 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The protagonist, Julien Sorel, is a driven and intelligent man, but equally fails to understand much about the ways of the world he sets out to conquer. He harbours many romantic illusions, and becomes little more than a pawn in the political machinations of the influential and ruthless people who surround him. Stendhal uses his flawed hero to satirize French society of the time, particularly the hypocrisy and materialism of its aristocracy and the Roman Catholic Church, and to foretell a radical change in French society that will remove both of those forces from their positions of power. The red and the black of the title are the contrasting colors of the army uniform of the times and of the robes of priests, respectively. Julien Sorel observes early on in the novel that, under the Bourbon restoration it is impossible for a man of his class to distinguish himself in the army (as he might have done under Napoleon); now, only a career in the Church offers social advancement and glory.--Wikipedia

"The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the exploits of Fabrizio del Dongo, an ardent young aristocrat who joins Napoleon's army just before the battle of Waterloo. Yet perhaps the novel's most unforgettable characters are the hero's beautiful aunt, the alluring Duchess of Sanseverina, and her lover, Count Mosca, who plot to further Fabrizio's political career at the treacherous court of Parma in a sweeping story that illuminates an entire epoch of European history." "This edition includes original illustrations by Robert Andrew Parker and Notes and a Translator's Afterword by Richard Howard."--Jacket

""Il est des jours où la beauté seule du climat de Rome suffit au bonheur." Second volume des Voyages en Italie, Promenades dans Rome vient compléter l'aventure artistique et culturelle commencée quelques années plus tôt avec Rome, Naples et Florence. Cette fois, Stendhal a été conquis par la Ville éternelle au point de se lancer dans la rédaction d'un guide de voyage, recueil de "sensations du moment". Il laisse le lecteur libre de le suivre dans ses innombrables digressions et descriptions, son seul but étant de susciter "une émotion de curiosité que rien ne peut arrêter", en évitant de défaillir face à tant de beauté le célèbre syndrome stendhalien. Une façon exceptionnelle de se plonger dans la vie romaine."--Page 4 of cover

Memoirs of egotism (Souvenirs d'égotisme) by Stendhal( Book )

102 editions published between 1892 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1832, three years before The Life of Henry Brulard (which recounts the author?s boyhood and youth), Memoirs of Egotism forms the essential middle section of Stendhal?s intended autobiography. Along with Journals of Italy, these volumes comprise what Andr Gide has called one of the truly great autobiographies in any language. Unpublished until fifty years after the Stendhal?s death, Memoirs of Egotism concerns itself exclusively with the decade following his return from Milan to Paris in 1821. Stendhal appears as a cynical wit, adventurer, lover, brilliant conversationalist, and secret man of letters. We are privy to his encounters in the salons and boudoirs of the capital, with his attendant hopes (realized and disappointed), private foibles, and social miscalculations. Stendhal?s passionate and ceaseless pursuit of happiness is on display, intertwined, as always, with the undercutting wit and unsparing self-analysis that have transformed his name into an adjective for an entire point of view?all as frankly conveyed and keenly observed as in any memoir before or since. The book is deftly translated by Hannah and Matthew Josephson. Mr. Josephson also provides an extensive introduction and editorial notes. ______?The lens of his intelligence is focused on himself with a concentration that amounts to ferocity.??Doris Lessing?He had the faculty of surrendering himself to some emotional experience, then recording it afterward with complete self-consciousness. He tried to examine himself, and others, with the experimental and dispassionate attitude typified by the new scientists of the time, much as his friend Cuvier, the biologist, dissected animals in his laboratory?eschewing bombast, or sentiment.??from the editor?s introduction
