Product description

Review

'The Charterhouse of Parma often contains a whole book in a single page... If is a masterpiece' Balzac 'What you find so much of in this novel - and in this new translation more than ever before - is, in a word, life' New York Times

Synopsis

Balzac considered it the most important French novel of his time. Gide later deemed it the greatest of all French novels, and Henry James judged it to be a masterpiece. Now, in a major literary event, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and distinguished translator Richard Howard presents a new rendition of Stendhal's epic tale of romance, adventure and court intrigue set in early nineteenth-century Italy. The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the exploits of Fabrizio del Dongo, an ardent young aristocrat who joins Napoleon's army just before the Battle of Waterloo. Yet perhaps the novel's most unforgettable characters are the hero's beautiful aunt, the alluring Duchess of Sanseverina, and her lover, Count Mosca, who plot to further Fabrizio's political career at the treacherous court of Parma. A sweeping story that illuminates an entire epoch of European history.
