Short Biography of Stendhal

 Q:   Ask a Question about Short Biography of Stendhal       
Pen name of Marie Henri Beyle (1783-1842) was a French novelist. His two major novels Le Rouge et le noir/The Red and the Black in 1830 and La Chartreuse de Par me/The Charterhouse of Parma in 1839 were pioneering works in their treatment of disguise and hypocrisy; a review of the latter by OBalzac in 1840 furthered his reputation.

Born in Grenoble, he served in Napoleon's armies, taking part in the ill-fated Russian campaign, and, failing in his hopes of becoming a prefect, lived in Italy from 1814 until suspicion of espionage drove him back to Paris in 1821, where he lived by literary hackwork. From 1830 he was a member of the consular service, spending his leaves in Paris.
