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

2,297 editions published between 1830 and 2014 in 39 languages and held by 12,471 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 )

772 editions published between 1800 and 2014 in 19 languages and held by 4,056 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,

125 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The life of Haydn is, in the main, a plagiarism of G. Carpani's Le Haydine (Milan, 1812). The biographical part of the Mozart, credited by Stendhal to Schlichtegroll, is practically a reproduction of Winckler's Notice biographique sur Jean-Chrysostome-Wolfgang-Théophile Mozart (Paris, 1801) with one anecdote added from another source. The last letter of the Mozart and the letter on Metastasio are by Stendhal. The notice of Mozart, attributed by Muller to C. Winckler, is by T. F. Winckler

"This edition includes original illustrations by Robert Andrew Parker and Notes and a Translator's Afterword by Richard Howard."--Jacket

Histoire de la peinture en Italie by Stendhal( Book )

194 editions published between 1800 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si tratta del primo libro di Stendhal (l'ideazione risale al 1811-12), il solo a non essere stato scritto di getto, ma ad aver richiesto anni di lavoro. E'anche la prima storia dell'arte redatta con spirito romantico ove, nel concetto di bello entra l'idea della grazia, cioè un elemento di irrazionalità, come pure il principio che bello non è tanto nelle cose quanto nello stato d'animo di chi le guarda. L'Introduzione ne è premessa saliente oltre che un interessante spaccato del taglio critico con cui Stendhal affronta la materia trattata: la pittura spiegata attraverso le vite degli artisti, le condizioni storiche e sociali e perfino naturali che li avevano determinati. valore della bellezza

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

139 editions published between 1189 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 430 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
