Summary
  • Determined to take the education of his beloved younger sister Pauline in hand, Henri Beyle, better known by his famous nom de plume, 'Stendhal', was obliged, on leaving Grenoble, to continue her tuition in epistolary fashion. In his letters he instructs her in what she should read (Plutarch, Moliere, Shakespeare); what to study (philosophy, logic, mathematics, music); whether to get married (and to what kind of man); and generally how to enliven the tedium of a French provincial town. At the same time he encourages her to think for herself, a process that, inevitably, reveals Stendhal at his most intimate as a brother, soldier and writer. --
  • Written in his apparently artless, sparkling style, Stendhal's letters to his sister mark the slow but resolute transition of a literary man into a mature and accomplished writer. --
  • A fervent admirer of Napoleon and a religious dissident, Stendhal was regarded with some ambivalence during his lifetime. However, he has since come to be recognised as an originator of the modern novel and today he is celebrated as one of the great figures of French literature. --Book Jacket
