Product Information


Young Julien Sorel, the son of a country timber merchant, carries a portrait of his hero Napoleon Bonaparte and dreams of military glory. A brilliant career in the Church leads him into Parisian high society, where, “mounted upon the finest horse in Alsace”, he gains high military office and wins the heart of the aristocratic Mlle Mathilde de la Mole. Julien’s cunning and ambition lead him onto all sorts of scrapes, but it is the struggle between his passion for two beautiful women – the quixotic Mathilde and the loyal Mme de Rênal – which ultimately decides his destiny.

Klappentext

The tale of social-climbing arriviste Julien Sorel brilliantly captures the contradictions and hypocrisies permeating French society under the Bourbon Restoration. Using his formidable intellect, innate cunning and charm, Julien clambers his way to the top, manipulating and seducing those who have the power to give him the social status he desires. However, Julien's idealism and Napoleonic ambitions are always simmering just below the surface, threatening to erupt and jeopardise his designs. For how long will he be able to smother his true feelings? Bill Homewood's reading masterfully portrays the psychological tension and intrigue of this French classic.

Er bekleidete eine Stelle im Kriegsministerium und war von 1800 bis 1802 Unterleutnant im Italienfeldzug. 1810 war er Auditeur des Staatsrats, 1813 Intendant. Er war, in der Nachhut, an Napoleons Russlandfeldzugs beteiligt, 1814 übersiedelte er nach Mailand. Stendhal war mit Lord Byron und Alessandro Manzoni bekannt und mit Prosper Mérimée befreundet. Er war als Kritiker des Journal de Paris und als königlicher Bibliothekar tätig, 1830 wurde er Konsul in Triest, 1831 in Civita Vecchia.
