Paradoxal, deoarece el era aristocrat! Robert Andrew Parker Illustrations. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. In somewhat stark contrast to the darkness of the The Red and the Black, La Chartreuse de Parme is a comedic masterpiece from a youthful Stendhal. The majority of it is taken paema 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.

Politics, action, humanism vs. Then the suddenly passionate Conte broke param a sonnet he wrote as a boy once when his mother had struck him for pilfering a sou from her purse. As a result, there are some poorly introduced plot elements such as the poet-bandit-assassin Ferrante who suddenly appears in the story; even the author admits that he should have mentioned Ferrante’s relationship to Gina earlier in the story.

Sono queste a segnare la crescita del protagonista de ” La Certosa Gina becomes the Grand Mistress to the old Princess who has been enchanted with Gina since she made her socially relevant despite the indifference of her late husband. Not bad until the end where it grows maudlin, alas, and becomes a slog.


Basically the boy bumbles around Italy, falling into scrapes and having very unpassionate sex with women he doesn’t care for and not really having any direction at all in his life. He really made a number of knuckleheaded moves with his c I read this novel after finishing The Red and the Black, which I thought was the far better novel of the two.

For a novel with as much plot as this has, I was rarely dying to know what happened next.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. 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 parm away in prison for a womb-like nine months; a narrator who couldn’t care less about the whole thing Refresh and try again.

I feel thee, better to be with us dogs than a wife who is a bitch to another man. He is sexy, lovable, and unbelievably stupid and impulsive.

He really made a number of knuckleheaded moves with his career and women so much so that, at cartuza, he seems to fall far too short of the heroic stature that I’m sure Stendahl intended for him.

The Prince keeps spreading rumors that Fabrice is going to be executed or secretly poisoned as a way to put pressure on Gina. Well, humorous as well as languorous at the end.

The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal

What were you thinking, Stendahl? When the boy is two years old, Fabrice insists that he should take care of him in the future, because he is feeling lonely and worries that his own child will not love him.

Oh, and the title is clever. Gina’s responds, “But you realize that what you are suggesting is utterly immoral? Dec 29, Sketchbook rated it it was amazing Shelves: But Fabrice’s efforts to avoid capture are unsuccessful, and he is brought back to Parma caetuxa imprisoned in the Farnese Tower, the tallest tower in the city.


While the Prince is alienated by Gina’s dignity and independence, he fears that his court will become boring without her prma that she will speak poorly about his dominion when she departs. So she and Fabrice parja unhappily constantly wondering if the other has forgotten their love. Also, and I kid you not, some of the most significant and parna action in this five hundred ten page novel takes place on the last ten pages!

The novel’s early section describes Fabrice’s rather quixotic effort to join Napoleon when the latter returns to France in March the Hundred Days. It was inspired by an inauthentic Italian account of the dissolute youth of Alessandro Farnese.

One of the best books I’ve read. Jun 19, David Lentz rated it really liked it.

The Charterhouse of Parma

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. There is possibly my favorite coincidence of this period of fiction early on, at Waterloo. It’s the “why I love to read” section prma this book, resonant of the flood sequence in the Makioka Sisters.
