The charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal( Book )
2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 216 libraries 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)
Life on the Mississippi by Mark Twain( Book )
2 editions published in 1944 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
