Promenades dans Rome

République des Lettres
1

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie de Stendhal. En août 1827, Stendhal arrive pour la sixième fois à Rome. Il y séjourne jusqu'en avril 1829, rédigeant au fur et à mesure de sa découverte de la cité éternelle un journal, à la fois guide artistique et carnet de voyages émaillé d'anecdotes et de digressions diverses et variées. Histoire, architecture, peinture, sculpture, musique, toute la sensibilité esthétique, la sagesse épicurienne et le talent littéraire de l'auteur du "Rouge et le Noir" sont ici mobilisés pour faire découvrir au lecteur les innombrables chefs-d'oeuvre romains, sans oublier ses commentaires toujours intéressants sur la politique, la religion et les moeurs de la société romaine de l'époque. Subtil, raffiné, érudit, dédié aux "happy few" amateurs d'art et de beauté d'une époque où le tourisme de masse n'existait pas encore, ces stendhaliennes "Promenades dans Rome" compléteront agréablement tout autre guide touristique contemporain. Pour Lampedusa, "Promenades dans Rome" est sans nul doute "le plus grand hommage qui ait jamais été rendu à Rome, comprise comme une créature vivante et pas seulement comme un réservoir de souvenirs".

Stendhal
The Charterhouse of Parma (1839) is a compelling novel of passion and daring, of prisons and heroic escape, of political chicanery and sublime personal courage. Set at the beginning of the nineteenth century, amidst the golden landscapes of northern Italy, it traces the joyous but ill-starred amorous exploits of a handsome young aristocrat called Fabrice del Dongo, and of his incomparable aunt Gina, her suitor Prime Minister Mosca, and Clélia, a heroine of ethereal beauty and earthly passion. These characters are rendered unforgettable by Stendhal's remarkable gift for psychological insight. `Never before have the hearts of princes, ministers, courtiers, and women been depicted like this,' wrote Honoré de Balzac. `Stendhal's tableau has the dimensions of a fresco but the precision of the Dutch masters.' The great achievement of The Charterhouse of Parma is to conjure up the excitement and romance of youth while never losing sight of the harsh realities which beset the pursuit of happiness, nor the humour and patient irony with which these must be viewed. This new translation captures Stendhal's narrative verve, while the Introduction explores the novel's reception and the reasons for its enduring popularity and power.
