Description - Stendhal: The Red and the Black by Stirling Haig
Stendhal's great novel The Red and the Black, published in 1830, is seen today as one of the most distinguished monuments of literary realism. In this introductory study, Stirling Haig shows how this realism derives from the incorporation of both history and legal reportage into the novel, and how it combines autobiography with mimesis. Professor Haig locates the novel in the context of Stendhal's own experiences as a Commissariat officer in the Napoleonic army, journalist, opera-lover, salon dandy and traveller in Italy and Restoration France, and highlights the constant interpenetration of personal, documentary, and fictional elements in Stendhal's writings.
