    I was taking the train from Geneva to Grenoble, one of the most beautiful routes in the world, and I was reading Le Rouge et le Noir for the second time. I hadn't picked the book because I was visiting Grenoble, it just worked out that way. I was alone in the compartment; it was one of those old-fashioned carriages which still had compartments.At the fifth or sixth stop, the door opened, and a young woman entered carrying a lot of heavy luggage. She asked me, in French, if I'd mind helping her p [...]

    ”Nothing can distinguish a man as a death sentence,” thought Mathilde. “It’s the only thing one can’t buy.”Julien Sorel was a young man with an audacious intellect. Such a gift can be a great resource that can be exploited for financial gain or it can be a burden that keeps a person in perpetual misery. Sorel, the hero of our story, experiences both the wonders and the loneliness that sometimes goes hand in hand with being too aware to accept fate without attempting to manipulate a b [...]

    The Red and the Black draws a colorful mosaic about the required hypocrisy to climb the ladder of social status in the France of the July Revolution. Chronicled by an omniscient narrator, who meets every requisite to be Stendhal himself, the reader follows the story of Julien Sorel, a young man of humble origins whose only ambition is to ascend in the social hierarchy in a world still dominated by the Machiavellian politicking of the clergy and the nobility after the downfall of the Emperor. Des [...]

    معمولاً وقتی اسم رمان های کلاسیک میاد، آدم احساس میکنه باید منتظر یه اثر دراز و خسته کننده باشه، پر از آدمایی که عصا قورت دادن و راجع به اخلاقیات و قضایای کلی حکم صادر میکنن. شرمنده، این رمان هم همین طوریه!ولی خب، از حق نگذریم، همین مسائل رو، کمابیش ضمن داستان خوبی مطرح کرده. هر [...]

    Κάποιος με ρώτησε κάποια στιγμή , αν το " κόκκινο και το μαύρο " είναι ενα πολιτικό βιβλίο . Στ'αληθεια δε ξέρω την απάντηση . Αυτο που ξέρω είναι οτι αφορά σχέσεις εξουσίας κι εξάρτησης και αυτο ναι το κάνει ενα πολιτικό βιβλίο .

  • Quinn Slobodian

    It's a book about the dangers of reading. The novel's characters are seduced by ideas, poetic gestures, tragic endings, narratives they might inhabit and soon find themselves enslaved to them, marching lockstep in the footprints of characters whose stories they've read. Stendhal obviously takes pleasure in his position as most recent seducer of the book's reader and he sugar-coats his narrative pills just enough that it's only later, with the feeling of slight corrosion in your stomach, that you [...]

    Julien Sorel tanto nos pode irritar como comover. É inteligente mas vive constantemente desconfiado, sabe manipular a seu bel prazer mas alimenta um ressentimento que o envenena . Contudo, dá-nos a volta pela sua ingenuidade e por aquele permanente complexo de inferioridade que faz dele um ser indefeso e humilhado.Na França vive-se o período da Restauração após a queda de Napoleão. O país encontra-se dividido entre Realistas, defensores da monarquia absoluta, e Liberais, partidários de [...]

    I just finished watching the latest movie adaptation of Les Miserables and there is a song there about Red and Black. I got excited because both Les Miserables and this book Scarlet and Black also known as Red and Black were both written by French novelists and set in the 19th century France. So, when I heard the song being sung by those young actors in Les Miz I said so that's the other meaning of those colors!♪♫♪Red - the blood of angry men!Black - the dark of ages past!Red - a world abo [...]

    It's fairly easy to see why this book isn't more well-known as it was ahead of its time in 1830 and overshadowed by Flaubert, Balzac, and Hugo. And despite the fact that some consider it among the first "modern" novels it is probably a bit too dated to appeal to a more modern-focused crowd. I think I've come to a perfect period in my reading where this makes perfect sense. After Proust, Banffy and Zilahy - another read about courtly high society was a tough sell but I persevered a bit exhausted [...]

    Ultimately, Stendhal's The Red and the Black almost pissed me off. If I see this book again I'm tempted to say to it, "I'm not rationally sure why you kinda pissed me off. I just know you did!" It really would have if I had cared enough about any of the people in it to be pissed off. I hate that feeling of self persuasion as inevitable, as people being trapped in mind games. It sucks but I cannot swallow the idea that there is no other outcome. I know it's satire. I kinda hate satire. I don't wa [...]

    Πόσο με μπέρδεψε αυτό το βιβλίο! Χωρίς αμφιβολία το βρήκα αριστουργηματικό, αλλά αναρωτιέμαι, αν πρόκειται για σάτιρα των ηθών του 19ου αιώνα και δη της εποχής της Παλινόρθωσης των Βουρβόνων (1814 – 1830) ή αν είναι μια αλληγορία για τους Ναπολεόντιους χρόνους που προηγήθηκαν, α [...]

    I read this for two reasons: First, now, when I die, I can say "Why yes, I've read Stendhal." Right, I don't know who at my deathbed is going to be asking me about Stendhal, but it's one more thing to cross off my worry list. Maybe there's some sort of deathbed reckoning for book snobs that involves a Ghost of Literature Past. Then our conversation could go like this:Ghost of Literature Past: And you've read Stendhal ?Me: Yes, indeedy!GLP: Hmmm. Yes. Hmmm and it was in translation, I believe?M [...]

    If nothing else, read Moncrieff's translation to seep yourself in the highly latinate, generally overeducated and comfortably contorted prose ('But the adroitness with the want of which we are reproaching him would have debarred the sublime impulse of seizing the sword which, at that moment, made him appear so handsome in the eyes of Mademoiselle de La Mole') -- it will do wonders for the style of your work emails. Trust me on this one.What to say about Stendhal? I think he exists halfway betwee [...]

    Oh, nineteenth century! Not counting the subtitle—'A Chronicle of the 19th Century' (which I didn’t know of until just now: it’s not on the cover or the title page of either copy of the book I have on hand)—I count eight mentions of the phrase ‘nineteenth century’ by the omniscient narrator, of which two are apostrophes, including the quote above, which is from one of the later chapters. Revolution and the turmoil of change in the world has led to this lamentation, in much the same w [...]

    Clube dos Clássicos Vivos"– Outrora – dizia-lhe Julien – quando eu podia ter sido tão feliz durante os nossos passeios pelos bosques de Vergy, uma ambição fogosa atraía a minha alma para regiões imaginárias. Em vez de estreitar contra o coração esse braço encantador que estava tão perto dos meus lábios, o futuro afastava-me de ti; eu pertencia aos inúmeros combates que teria de travar para edificar uma fortuna colossal Não, eu teria morrido sem conhecer a felicidade se não t [...]

    (review in English below)Gostei muito, e estou de certo modo surpreendida por isso.Ao início irritei-me com a personalidade de Julien, interesseiro e calculista, e na verdade nunca me senti realmente envolvida emocionalmente na história. Mas, de alguma forma, o autor conseguiu manter-me sempre interessada, nunca me aborrecendo - mesmo quando se discutiam aspectos da História francesa que me são completamente desconhecidos. As poucas notas de rodapé são interessantes, mas souberam-me a pouc [...]

    الأحمر والأسود تأخرت كثيراً في الكتابة عن ستاندال وكتابيه، ولا أدري لماذا؟ ربما كان انشغالي بالمعرض هو السبب، وربما حقيقة أن الكتابين كانا ضخمين، وأردت فترة أهضمهما فيها وأخرج برأي، ستاندال من الأدباء المثيرين للجدل، فهناك من قدروه واعتبروه أباً للرواية النفسية وروائياً [...]

    When I was at university my best friend and I would regularly write to each other as, for the first time, we were at different ends of the country. These letters [yes, letters – we were not being pretentious; neither of us could afford a computer as kids and so didn’t know how to use email until later] would usually contain details of any, uh, girl-related activity, music recommendations and book recommendations. Parts of these letters have stayed with me – certain relationships [one in pa [...]

    What makes this novel a masterpiece is our friend Julien. Not a very likable fellow, I must admit, but a fantastically written one. He’s incredibly flawed and that’s what makes him so utterly human. He constantly makes horrible mistakes, trips over himself, is mostly always way in over his head, but all of that just makes him more complex, and thus more interesting.

  • Claudia

    Se Julien tivesse conta no twitter seria o típico usuário obsessivo da hashtag #odeiopessoas.Stendhal sabia escrever sobre os sentimentos. Com requinte e alguma ironia construiu um dos melhores e complexos personagens de todos os tempos. Ainda tem a capacidade de conversar com o leitor de forma despretensiosa e muito cativante. Esta é a considerada a sua obra-prima, um romance histórico psicológico. Uma leitura indiscutivelmente inesquecível. CONTINUA AQUI: amulherqueamalivrosspo

    I don't normally give up books. Yet, Stendhal's The Red and The Black somehow failed to make me want to finish it if only out of curiosity about what happens in the end. I get why it's considered a classic and the author's irony is certainly smart and well used, but the characters are too absurd for my taste and the prose too shallow. I could neither relate to any character in the book, nor justify their thoughts and actions which were constantly contradicting one another. I know that was part o [...]

    First published in 1830, The Red and the Blackis the bildungsroman of Julien Sorel, an intelligent and ambitious young man from a working class family in a rural area of France. Highly romantic, Julien admires Napoleon Bonaparte and has dreamed of a military career: the "Black" in the title represents the colour of the military uniform. However, a distinguished military career is not something a young man of his class can aspire to and Julien turns his attention to the Church: the uniform of whi [...]

  • Teresa Proença

    Li este livro há quase quarenta anos. Mais precisamente em 1978. Como sei? É simples. Pela data de edição do meu exemplar. Na altura, tinha uma bolsa pequenita onde cabia pouco mais do que um ou dois livros por mês. Isto nos meses bons; nos maus tinha de apertar muito o cinto para conseguir, pelo menos, um. Assim, nunca tinha livros à espera de ser lidos (hoje tenho quase novecentos). E, não sei se era pela raridade, ou por pensar que o Tempo era infinito, todos os livros que li na juvent [...]

    I promised myself I wouldn’t spend too long clacking out a review of this one: usually, after a frenzied Sunday of reading I like to mellow out for the last few hours, and not dissertate (apparently that’s a word!) on a lofty French classic. Plus there are a few tip-top reviews already, like this one and this one and this one, so who cares what the anaemic Scot has to say? Really? In short: loved the epigrams, didn’t mind the frequent blurring of narrator with interior narration and dialog [...]

    Julián Sorel es junto a Dorian Gray, Raskólnikov, Ana Karenina o Madame Bovary, uno de esos personajes inolvidables de las novelas decimonónicas.Julián Sorel es el perfecto arribista. Nada significan para él el amor, la amistad, la camaradería o la honestidad. Así, la estrategia, la mentira y la hipocresía constituyen su modus vivendi aplicando la máxima maquiavélica de que el fin justifica los medios. La maestría de Stendhal reside en mostrarnos al personaje desde todas sus caras sin [...]

    A word I came across while reading about The Red and The Black was irony. It came upon me like a word written maybe on Arial 10 that grew gradually into a signboard as I read forward; for I think it describes perfectly Stendhal’s style and perhaps what made me think of this oeuvre as great. Irony came presented to me as a matter of perspective; as means to present something in many ways. Such is the way with Stendhal’s characters in The Red and The Black: the author plays with them and maybe [...]

    “O Vermelho e o Negro” (1830) surge algumas décadas antes de “Madame Bovary” (1857), oferecendo-lhe toda uma nova abordagem do romance, marcando aquilo que ficaria conhecido como, a ascenção do realismo e queda do romantismo, e que Flaubert aproveitaria tendo em conta toda a sua força. Apesar da proximidade, a extensão e intensidade da obra de Stendhal leva a que facilmente a sua leitura permaneça dentro de nós, debatendo-se com aquilo que somos, algo que dificilmente ocorre com o [...]
