“Marie-Henri Beyle dit Stendhal is a French writer. From 1800 to 1801, he went to the Italian campaign where he was appointed second lieutenant in the 6th regiment of Dragons. From 1810, he participated in the administration and the Napoleonic Wars. During the fall of the First Empire, in 1814, he moved to Italy where he moved to Milan. During this period, he wrote several works around Italy as well as “Of love”. In 1821, because he is accused of sympathy for carbonari – affection particularly felt in the new “Vanina Vanini” – he is expelled from Milan.
Back in Paris, almost ruined after the death of his father, he entered the literary world by attending literary salons. In 1827, he published his first novel, “Armance”, followed in 1830 by the “Red and the Black”, partly influenced by the revolution of July 1830. After this, he was appointed consul in Civitavecchia, where he wrote the “Memories of egotism” and the unfinished novel “Lucien Leuwen”.
In Civitavecchia, he gets bored and leaves to travel. A leave from 1836 to 1839 allowed him to return to Paris. After having completed his last masterpiece (in fifty two days), “The Charterhouse of Parma”, in 1839, he began to write his novel “Lamiel” which remains unfinished. Stendhal died of apoplexy at the age of 59, leaving his autobiographical work “Life of Henri Brulard” unfinished. He had been made knight of the Legion of Honor by Guizot.”
