“the red and the black, stendhal’s masterpiece, is the story of julien sorel, a young dreamer from the provinces, fueled by napoleonic ideals, whose desire to make his fortune sets in motion events both mesmerizing and tragic.
sorel’s quest to find himself, and the doomed love he encounters along the way, are delineated with an unprecedented psychological depth and realism. at the same time, stendhal weaves together the social life and fraught political intrigues of post–napoleonic france, bringing that world to unforgettable, full-color life. his portrait of julien and early-nineteenth-century france remains an unsurpassed creation, one that brilliantly anticipates modern literature.” – so says some dude from project gutenberg
