Often cited as the first realist novel

[Stendhal’s] portrait of Julien and early-nineteenth-century France remains an unsurpassed creation, one that brilliantly anticipates modern literature. Modern Library Classics

The Red and the Black is a lively, satirical portrayal of French society after Waterloo, riddled with corruption, greed and ennui, and Julien—the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own emotions—is one of the most intriguing characters in European literature. Penguin Classics

Through the deep psychological introspection of Julien we see Stendhal’s unique literary genius, the remarkable way in which he allows readers to live in the minds of his characters. Digireads.com

Stendhal’s great novel The Red and the Black, published in 1830, is seen as one of the most distinguished monuments of literary realism. —Cambridge University Press
