"Long ago in Sicily, the legend of Don Juan began. In this, Moliere's version of the tale, richly translated by Richard Wilbur, we meet Don Juan again. He is a man who appreciates beauty wherever and whenever he sees it - and beauty is almost always a pretty woman, and he appreciates her by winning her love. Don Juan is on a constant quest to conquer women and to enjoy the passion they provoke. He is accompanied , somewhat reluctantly, by his manservant sganarelle, who backs him up to the public, but behind his back tries to warn unsuspecting maidens. Sganarelle and Don Juan constantly debate the presence of Heaven, Hell and God - Don Juan believing none of these things exist, Sganarelle knowing otherwise. In the course of his attempted seductions, Don Juan is chased and challenged by those he has wronged in the past - or by their very angry brothers whose job it is to uphold family honor. In the end, Sganarelle wins the debate when Don Juan, heeding no warnings as to his behavior and how it affects his afterlife, is swallowed up by the Earth and sent to Hell. He's got his due, leaving behind a world of broken-hearted women and unpaid wages to Sganarelle"--P. [4] of cover

"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
