Über den Autor
Marie-Henri Beyle, better known by his pen name Stendhal (1783–1842), was a prominent figure in 19th-century French literature. His acute psychological insight, unembellished prose style, and lucidity have positioned him as a forerunner of the realist literary movement, though his narrative elegance aligns with Romantic sensibilities as well. Stendhal's literary contributions are commendably varied, encompassing novels, biographies, and critical essays. Most notable among his works are his novels 'Le Rouge et le Noir' (The Red and the Black) and 'La Chartreuse de Parme' (The Charterhouse of Parma), which are often regarded as masterpieces for their in-depth exploration of characters and society. His style is marked by a swift narrative pace and a penchant for irony, characteristics that have influenced successive generations of writers. 'The Greatest Works of French Literature,' often attributed to Stendhal, may be a collection encompassing such notable pieces, capturing the essence of a period marked by turbulent sociopolitical change. Stendhal's keen observations of society and the human experience, coupled with his innovative narrative techniques, make his works enduring subjects of study and enjoyment.
