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

6 editions published between 1905 and 1953 in German and Hungarian and held by 9 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

Promenades dans Rome by Stendhal( Book )

2 editions published between 1870 and 1931 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""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

The charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in Russian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Charterhouse of Parma (1839) is a compelling novel of passion and daring. Set at the beginning of the 19th-century in northern Italy, it traces the joyous but ill-starred amorous exploits of a handsome young aristocrat called Fabrice del Dongo. The novel's great achievement is to conjure up the excitement and romance of youth while never losing sight of the harsh realities which beset the pursuit of happiness. This new translation captures Stendhal's narrative verse, while the Introduction explores the novel's reception and the reasons for its enduring popularity and power. - Amazon (summary for a 2009 edition of this title)
