ROME, NAPLES, FLORENCE
Matèria: Narrativa en francès
This vintage book contains Stendhal’s 1826 work; “Rome, Naples et Florence”. Living and travelling around Italy from the age of seventeen - until just a few months prior to his death, Stendhal had a profound and authentic knowledge of the country. This fascinating and insightful account of the people and places of Italy is unparalleled in its detail, and is highly recommended for those with an interest in the country. Marie-Henri Beyle (1783 - 1842), commonly known by his pseudonym "Stendhal", was a French writer of the nineteenth century. He is famous for his unique psychoanalyses of his fictional characters, and is hailed as one of the pioneering practitioners of realism. Many antiquarian texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. This book is in the French language.
