The charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal( Book )

23 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Charterhouse of Parma (1839) is a compelling novel of passion and daring, of prisons and heroic escape, of political chicanery and sublime personal courage. Set at the beginning of the nineteenth century, amidst the golden landscapes of northern Italy, it traces the joyous but ill-starred amorous exploits of a handsome young aristocrat called Fabrice del Dongo, and of his incomparable aunt Gina, her suitor Prime Minister Mosca, and Clelia, a heroine of ethereal beauty and earthly passion. The great achievement of The Charterhouse of Parma is to conjure up the excitement and romance of youth while never losing sight of the harsh realities which beset the pursuit of happiness, nor the humour and patient irony with which these must be viewed. This new translation captures Stendhal's narrative verve, while the Introduction explores the novel's reception and the reasons for its enduring popularity and power

The two young brides by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

4 editions published in 1902 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two very intelligent, very idealistic young women leave the convent school wherethey became the fastest of friends to return to their families and embark on theirnew lives. For Renee de Maucombe, this means an arranged marriage with a countrygentleman of Provence, a fine if slightly dull man for whom she feels admirationbut nothing more. Meanwhile, Louise de Chaulieu makes for her family's house inParis, intent on enjoying her freedom to the fullest: glittering balls, the opera, andabove all, she devoutly hopes, the torments and ecstasies of true love and passion. What will come of these two very different lives? Despite Balzac's title, these aren't memoirs; rather, this is an epistolary novel. Forsome ten years, these two will--enthusiastically if not always faithfully--keep uptheir correspondence, obeying their vow to tell each other every tiny detail of theirstrange new lives, comparing their destinies, defending and sometimes bemoaningtheir choices, detailing the many changes, personal and social, that they undergo. AsBalzac writes, "Renee is reason. Louise is wildness. and both will lose." Balzacbeing Balzac, he seems to argue for the virtues of one of these lives over the other;but Balzac being Balzac, that argument remains profoundly ambiguous: "I would," heonce wrote, "rather be killed by Louise than live a long life with Renee.""--
