About the Author

Stendhal, the pseudonym of Marie-Henri Beyle (1783-1842), was a distinguished French writer known for his acute analysis of his characters' psychology and the society in which they lived, and for the dry wit of his narratives. Most renowned for his novels 'The Red and the Black' (1830) and 'The Charterhouse of Parma' (1839), Stendhal's works are celebrated for their realism and complex portrayal of individual consciousness. With a literary style ahead of his time, often linked to realism and psychological novel, Stendhal was not widely appreciated during his lifetime, but his work gained posthumous fame and had a profound influence on 19th and 20th-century authors.

The reference to 'Regency Romance Novels - Book Set' does not correspond to Stendhal's known bibliography and might be a misattribution. His expertise lay primarily in penetrating explorations of his characters' inner lives as they navigate the social and political upheavals of 19th-century France. This thematic preoccupation, along with his straightforward yet insightful prose, marks his distinct contribution to French literature and solidifies his legacy as a master of psychological narrative. His other notable works include 'On Love' (1822) and 'Lucien Leuwen' (unfinished, published posthumously). Stendhal's influence is such that the term 'Stendhal Syndrome'—denoting overwhelming emotion upon encountering sublime art—derives from an experience he described in his travel chronicles.
