About This Book
Handsome and ambitious, Julien Sorel is determined to rise above his humble
peasant origins and make something of his life-by adopting the code of hypocrisy
by which his society operates. Julien ultimately commits a crime-out of passion,
principle, or insanity-that will bring about his downfall. The Red and the Black
is a lively, satirical picture of French Restoration society after Waterloo,
riddled with corruption, greed, and ennui. The complex, sympathetic portrayal of
Julien, the cold exploiter whose Machiavellian campaign is undercut by his own
emotions, makes him Stendhal's most brilliant and human creation-and one of the
greatest characters in European literature.
