Wit and Politics in Stendhal’s Lucien Leuwen”. Feb 04, James F rated it liked it.

Novel, an invented prose narrative of considerable length and a certain complexity that deals imaginatively with human experience, usually through a connected sequence of events involving a group of persons in a specific setting. Only in fiction can the truth be told about the powerful.

Stendhal is, among other things, drawing a portrait of the political changes roiling France.

The leuen half near pages are taken up by a love affair with little plot or anything else of interest to engage the reader, it’s all just “oh I love you but how dare you touch me” and “oh I’m sure I love her but I’ll act as if I don’t and then maybe I’ll believe it myself omigod what am I doing”.

In its present condition, I wouldn’t recommend this to someone looking for an entertaining novel — at times it’s rather difficult because of its unfinished nature — but to anyone interested in French history and the conditions which led up toit is well worth the effort.


The first part, which was more comprehensively revised by Beyle and published before the second under the title The Green Huntsman, is set in the provincial town of Nancy, where he is posted as a second lieutenant in the cavalry regiment quartered there. Please try again later. The novel is closer to Charterhouse of Parma than the Red and the Black.

Feb 14, C’est donc une tres longue lecture qui n’offrent pas de conclusions. Luciej is very little of the biting wit in Stendhal’s other works maybe he was planning to add some Lucien Leuwen French Edition. There is very little of the biting wit in Stendhal’s other works maybe he was planning to add some This is an “unfinished” book; leeuwen, if you stendhap a Stendhal fan, that should not stop you from reading this.

Es sin duda un must! I certainly hope so Like julian Sorel, Lucien is mostly interested in power, and he is in a position to observe the naked exercise of the power of the French state.
