Handsome and ambitious, Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble peasant origins and make something of his life—by adopting the code of hypocrisy by which his society operates. Julien ultimately commits a crime—out of passion, principle, or insanity—that will bring about his downfall. Scarlet & Black is a lively, satirical picture of French Restoration society after Waterloo, riddled with corruption, greed, and ennui. The complex, sympathetic portrayal of Julien, the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions, makes him Stendhal’s most brilliant and human creation—and one of the greatest characters in European literature.

About the Author

Stendhal, the pen name of Marie-Henri Beyle (1783–1842), was a nineteenth-century French writer. Known for his acute analysis of his characters’ psychology, he is considered one of the earliest and foremost practitioners of realism in his two novels, Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black, 1830) and La Chartreuse de Parme (The Charterhouse of Parma, 1839).
