From the Introduction: "Marie-Henri Beyle, who used almost as many aliases during the earlier part of his career as a jewel-thief, did not settle upon the nom-de-plume of Stendhal until he was nearing forty". ".the many critical examinations to which The Red and the Black has been subjected, that it has so often been emphasized as a tale of egocentric conquest, and so little recognized as one of the great love stories of all time. Only Anna Karenina, in modern literature, compares with it". Bookseller Inventory # 413
