Über den Autor
Marie-Henri Beyle, better known by his pen name Stendhal, was a 19th-century French writer known for his acute analysis of his characters' psychology and the dry wit with which he depicted the social and political milieu of his time. Born on January 23, 1783, in Grenoble, his early life was marked by an unhappy childhood, driving him to seek solace in music and the written word. Stendhal made significant contributions to the literary world, and his works are often associated with the realism movement, for his depictions of real life were laced with a strong sense of irony and a keen psychological insight. He served in Napoleon's army and his experiences notably influenced his writings, threading themes of ambition and passion throughout his narratives. Among Stendhal's celebrated works are the novels 'The Red and the Black' and 'The Charterhouse of Parma,' which are often hailed as masterpieces for their complex characters and intricate portrayal of 19th-century society. His collection, as noted in 'French Literature Classics - Ultimate Collection: 90+ Novels, Stories, Poems, Plays & Philosophy', showcases his versatility as an author and his significant contribution to various literary genres. His narrative style combines a unique blend of romanticism with a distinct realism, which had a profound influence on later novelists. Stendhal passed away on March 23, 1842, leaving behind a legacy that continues to be celebrated in the annals of French literature.
