Opening lines
Le don Juan de Molire est galant sans doute, mais avant tout il est homme de bonne compagnie; avant de se livrer au penchant irrsistible qui l'entrane vers les jolies femmes, il tient se conformer un certain modle idal, il veut tre l'homme qui serait souverainement admir la cour d'un jeune roi galant et spirituel.

Los criterios de selección de las obras incluidas en la Biblioteca Básica Salvat me resultan misteriosos y he llegado a pensar, de manera poco caritativa, que uno de los principales criterios fue seleccionar obras para las cuáles no existieran derechos de autor o para las cuales los derechos de autor resultaran poco onerosos.

Los relatos incluidos en este libro de Stendhal no constituyen lo mejor del autor de las obras maestras Rojo y Negro y La Cartuja de Parma. Tres de los relatos están ambient

Este libro fue uno de los dos con los que desfalqué a mi querida Ada. Al menos los leo, no? en fin, yo no lo leí en esta edición de portada negro predominante, lo leí en una edición de Axial, pequeña, bonita, bien formada y cuidada. Los libros de Axial tienen la ventaja de que cuestan entre 29 y 35 pesos, imagínense. Y tienen desde el Decamerón, pasando por el Maravilloso viaje de Nils Holgersson hasta la Conciencia de Zeno y por supuesto, éste y otros de Stendhal. No hay excusa ni pretexto, cue ...more
As its own title states, Three Italian Chronicles consists of several stories dealing with Italy. One thing to know before starting this book is that Stendhal (or Marie-Henry Beyle) was in love with Italy and that he lived there for a long time, working as a French consul. The stories are based upon true crimes committed during (arguably) the Renaissance. And they are quite gorey. I wasn't expecting this at all, but they were very melodramatic and full of stereotyped characters. After reading Th ...more
Trop de noms propres, pour moi!
Dos novelas cortas, o cuentos largos según se les vea, que demuestran a la perfección el realismo practicado por Stendhal. Probablemente la parquedad sea su mayor desperfecto, pues en ocasiones da la impresión de que en el afán de mantener bajo el conteo de páginas, Stendhal se terminó censurando. En todo caso, la narración tampoco carece de sus magníficas descripciones ni sátira social.

Histórias reais e presentes no imaginário da época. Contém A abadessa de Castro, Vittoria Accoramboni, Os Cenci, A Duquesa de Palliano, San Francesco a Ripa, Vanina Vanini e Muito Favor Mata, metade das quais é muito bem conhecida hoje em dia. Stendhal, que amava a verdade e a mentira, não só pegou histórias muito interessantes como fonte, ele as contou com maestria.

Celui-ci est une très belle collection de contes italiennes de la renaissance écrites par un maître qui adore la passion and la romance de l'Italie. Voila, vous avez Stendhal en très grande forme.
i want to read this one no less than "the life of.." there is just something about stendhal i love. i adore the thoughts and sensations he stirs in me. i love the profound insights he offers.
Based on these three stories, Stendahl likes high melodrama. And vengeful women.
No me interesaron nada.

Henri-Marie Beyle , better known by his pen name Stendhal , was a 19th-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). ...more
