    So what would Al Gore choose if he had a book club? Gore named Stendhal's The Red and the Black, a 19th century classic chock full of adultery, betrayal, and moral vacuity, as his favorite book on a recent broadcast of Oprah. It's a bit shocking of a choice, given his wife and running mate's position on clean, wholesome literature. Listen and decide for yourself the merit of this presidential pick.

    Publié en 1839, "La Chartreuse de Parme" a été écrit en 53 jours par Stendhal. L'œuvre a pour décor l'Italie si chère à Stendhal. La Sanseverina possède toutes les dimensions de la femme amoureuse et objet d'amour passionné, tandis que le héros, Fabrice del Dongo, est un enfant béni des dieux. Mais leur fougue et leur sentimentalisme vont les mener à un destin tragique.

    The author dedicates his story to 'The Happy Few'. This presumably means those who lead lives free of hypocrisy and deceit. They are few indeed in the second part of this authoritative novel of early 19th-century France. Julien Sorel leaves the country town of Verrieres and flees to Paris with the sound of guns in pursuit. He is to take up a post as secretary to M. de la Mole, an influential businessman in the capital.

    The Red and the Black is a powerful character study of Julien Sorel, a clever and idealistic young opportunist who attempts to rise above his station through a combination of talent, deception, and hypocrisy. He uses his powers of seduction and charm to secure advancement, only to find himself betrayed by his own passions and outwitted by the larger political and social intrigues of post-Napoleonic France.

    Young Julien Sorel, one of the greatest characters in European literature, tries to rise above his humble peasant origins through a combination of talent and hard work - but also seduction, deception, and hypocrisy. The story is set in 19th-century France and is filled with sex, violence, romance, and humour.

    Esta novela muestra la desilusion de un joven idealista cuando todo lo que creia acaba siendo destruido. La ironia es que cuando entra a un convento de cartujo, en busca de paz, ni siquiera alli la logra. Es una obra de gran belleza, con una vision lírica del mundo.

    Il romanzo, pubblicato nel 1830, raffigura la Francia immediatamente precedente la rivoluzione del 1830, le opposizioni tra Parigi e la provincia, tra borghesia e nobiltà, tra gesuiti e giansenisti. Grazie alla sua capacità di rappresentare i rapporti tra i personaggi e la loro psicologia, Stendhal traccia un affresco della società reazionaria post-napoleonica, mostrando le ambizioni, il cinismo e l'ipocrisia di cui si nutrono quotidianamente i rapporti umani.

    Julien Sorel ist ein Handwerkersohn ohne jedes praktische Geschick. Lieber liest er Bücher über Napoleon und träumt sich zurück in die Zeit der Französischen Revolution, als aus jedem Bauern ein Held werden konnte. Um seinen gesellschaftlichen Aufstieg zu forcieren, beginnt er eine Priesterausbildung und schafft es schließlich bis zum Sekretär eines Pariser Diplomaten. Doch seine Liebschaft mit dessen schöner und begehrter Tochter Mathilde führt nicht zu der ersehnten Heirat, sondern endet in einer großen Katastrophe

    Henri Beyle, plus connu sous le pseudonyme de Stendhal est un écrivain français, connu en particulier pour ses romans L"e Rouge et le Noir" et "La Chartreuse de Parme". Stendhal aurait voulu consacrer sa vie à la rêverie, à la "chasse au bonheur", aux arts et à l'amour ; bien malgré lui, il a eu une vie mouvementée. Ses romans "Le Rouge et le Noir" (1830), "La Chartreuse de Parme" (1839) et "Lucien Leuwen" (inachevé) ont fait de lui, aux côtés de Balzac, Hugo, Flaubert ou Zola, un des grands représentants du roman français au XIXème siècle.

    Una narrazione disincantata e ironica denuncia il vuoto di valori che seguì la disfatta napoleonica. La cittadella descritta da Stendhal è in realtà molto diversa dalla vera cittadella di Parma e, invece, molto simile a Castel Sant'Angelo, dalla cui cella fuggì (calandosi con delle corde), nel Cinquecento, Alessandro Farnese, rinchiuso per aver rapito e sedotto una nobildonna romana. In seguito diviene cardinale e, poi, papa.

    Pubblicato nel 1830 e ispirato ad un fatto di cronaca realmente accaduto qualche anno prima, "Il rosso e il nero", capolavoro di Stendhal, pseudonimo di Henri Beyle, narra la vertiginosa scalata sociale di Julien Sorel. Il giovane protagonista del romanzo, spinto da una inarrestabile ambizione, e favorito da due travolgenti storie amorose, la prima con la moglie del sindaco di una piccola cittadina e la seconda con la figlia di un marchese, riesce ad innalzarsi nella scala sociale fino ad ottenere un titolo nobiliare e una rendita.
