And yet--here is the marvelous part--"The Charterhouse of Parma," for all its realism, is still an incredibly romantic novel, containing a battle, a duel, a knife fight, various disguises for the hero and others, a poetry-writing revolutionary highwayman, and the most romantic setting for a love-affair possible--a passionate encounter between an unjustly imprisoned young nobleman and the beautiful daughter of the prison warden, soon to be married to a rich man she despises!
None of this, however, turns out quite the way that it would for Dumas pere --or Anthony Hope, for that matter--for in the world of Stendhal the individual's romantic impulses--as in real life--are often thwarted by circumstance.

Such buffooneries were uttered that even the dogs barking outside were scandalized. It was later claimed by the lowest class that at the same moment, insi JR was writing a little note on a piece of parchment when a cry was heard outside his door.
It was later claimed by the lowest class that at the same moment, inside the church of the Sta. Now JR had a tiny piece of dagger in his hilt and was ready to stab the Conte had the Conte attempted to draw his rapier. Alas, the Conte was there only to abuse the poor gentleman with his words. I feel thee, better to be with us dogs than a wife who is a bitch to another man. He had never heard such an accusation, and from such a lowly person. Thus his heart was filled with great sorrow and he drunk such wine that the Savior would have died had it been all his blood the Conte was drinking. Then the suddenly passionate Conte broke into a sonnet he wrote as a boy once when his mother had struck him for pilfering a sou from her purse.
When he finished the drunken crowd erupted with peals of laughter and insults, for the sonnet was not flattering and very novice.
It was his Italian blood, prone to fits of wild imaginings when in frenzy that we can attribute this to. And so Bonaparte declared the name JR and informed the furious Conte of his whereabouts. Full of zeal, the Conte made haste and left the tavern but not before he insulted the crowd with his profanities that are to be legendary for being astoundingly juvenile at the same time.
After assaulting JR with a furious besmirching, the Conte sat down and asked for some wine. But then light slowly came to him. But the smile vanished from his face when he looked at the clock and saw that it displayed the numbers seven fifty-eight. He sprang up, took a quick shower, changed clothes, got his bag and went out.

It is too long by half - the scenes of intrigue in Parma are remarkably redundant - and has some messy threads that never really resolve. The ending is anticlimactic and strange.
I think conceptions of literary STAKES were still missing at this point and so we are built toward a climax that we don't really care about and then fade away. Fabrizio is a spectacularly useful character. He is sexy, lovable, and unbelievably stupid and impulsive. I would say he makes several of the worst decisions in literature - all of which drive the action of the book and keep us on our toes. There is a zesty incesty plot that is cleverly written around.
There is possibly my favorite coincidence of this period of fiction early on, at Waterloo. I won't spoil it. In fact, the entire before-Parma section of the book is absolutely thrilling. Best of all though, is the stretch of the novel when Fabrizio is imprisoned in the beautifully designed tower. Brilliantly anticipated, wonderfully tense, oh-so-romantic.
It's the "why I love to read" section of this book, resonant of the flood sequence in the Makioka Sisters. The rest of the novel doesn't live up to it. But then again, what could? Oh, and the title is clever. Quick read for its length. The translation by Howard is excellent - the Modern Library edition is replete with typos. Oct 05, adam rated it really liked it. Standard 19th century French novel?
This book defies almost every convention of the novel, and it was written before any of those conventions were even recognized! No hero, no heroine, no real plot; no morality lesson; Machiavellian politics for everyone; love doesn't conquer all; love doesn't even exist in this world until the main character gets locked away in prison for a womb-like nine months; a narrator who couldn't care less about the whole thing I wouldn't call this an easy or fun read, but I find myself thinking about the book a lot, long after I've finished it. It's really difficult to place and kinda powerful because of it View all 3 comments.
Il pittore e scrittore mezzo greco ammirava molto il grande Fabrizio Clerici, suo amico: Jun 16, Perry rated it really liked it Shelves: O wretched soul, what sweetness it was! How we burned at the moment when I saw those eyes that I might never see again. Lines from Petrarch, on handkerchief given secretly as a gift in novel's forbidden love affair The Charterhouse represented a movement away and forward from the romanticism of Stendhal's time, this was one of the earliest examples of realism in a way that was considered revolutionary then; Balzac considered it the most important novel of his time.
Though some elements of the r O wretched soul, what sweetness it was! Though some elements of the romantic emotionalism linger, the novel turns to realism in more fully exploring human nature and psychology of its primary characters. Stendhal, like the protagonist Fabrice del Dongo, served with Napoleon's army in the campaign into Russia.
What is Kobo Super Points?
After Napoleon's fall, Stendhal lived six years in Italy, a country he fell in love with, before returning to his native France. Upon return from serving with Napoleon's army, del Dongo returns to the intrigue and politics of the court of Parma and fends off repeated advances from his relatively young aunt by marriage, 15 years his senior. He falls head over heels for the young maiden Clelia and they begin a platonic affair Once he deems the affair hopeless, that he can never be with his love, he turns to the cloth, escaping the cruel world into the charterhouse, or monastery.
I enjoyed it as a unique departure in my reading, appreciating the blend of the realism with some of the dramatically emotional pull of hopeless love. View all 19 comments.

The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal
Jun 24, Christian rated it it was ok. Stendahl was a nineteenth century French satirist who bascially invented the realistic psychological novel, and The Red And The Black is a wicked black comedy about a cunning young priest who plots to become Pope, and his subsequent adventures in high society.
Like I say I loved this book so I had high hopes for Charterhouse. Unfortunately, in my opinion after a promising start this book I picked this up last month because I'm a huge fan of The Red And The Black, easily one of my top five novels. Unfortunately, in my opinion after a promising start this book sort of loses the thread.
The majority of it is taken up with the bureaucratic and romantic intrigues of a court in the small Italian state of Parma, and to the modern Western reader most of this stuff is crushingly dull. Stendahl's great strength is showing us characters who are oblivious to their own inner motives those motives being plain as day to us readers and there is some of that here, as well as some compelling characters especially the Duchesa Gina Sanservina, the real hero of the story , but markedly absent is the biting wit and barbed social commentary of Stendahl's other great novel.
This is one of those historic romance novels that always leaves me scratching my head and thinking "wait, are these characters sleeping together or not? Some of the ridiculous courtly behavior is funny, or illuminating of human weakness in a telling way, some of the scenes are great the Waterloo sequence early in the book is absolutely amazing , some of the characters are worth getting to know, but there are weird plot twists that feel poorly introduced and then abandoned. Also, and I kid you not, some of the most significant and interesting action in this five hundred ten page novel takes place on the last ten pages!
We spend hundreds of pages meandering around in these peoples lives, and then all this crazy intense shit happens to them at the very end and is totally glossed over! What were you thinking, Stendahl? If you're a Stendahl fan you'll probably want to read this at some point, and maybe it's better than I know and I'm just not the best reader for this one. My opinion though, as if it weren't obvious, is that you should do yourself a favor and read The Red And The Black instead. View all 4 comments. Not bad until the end where it grows maudlin, alas, and becomes a slog.
