About the Author

Stendhal, the pen name of Marie-Henri Beyle (1783-1842), was a nineteenth-century French writer. Known for his acute analysis of his characters' psychology, he is considered one of the earliest and foremost practitioners of realism in his two novels, Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black, 1830) and La Chartreuse de Parme (The Charterhouse of Parma, 1839).

Reviews

The nature of Stendhal's talent...was a strange mixture of opera and cerebrality. He was at his best when demonstrating a particularly subtle insight with the florid sensationalism of La Scala.
Adored by Proust, admired by Valéry, envied by Gide, Stendhal, was far too prepossessing a writer to satisfy anyone... as merely a novelist.--Richard Howard
It was in Italy and in the the seventeenth century that a Princess said, as she sipped an ice with keen enjoyment on the evening of a hot day: 'What a pity, this is not a sin!'--Stendhal
