Stendhal

Stendhal — the pen name for Marie-Henri Beyle — was a French novelist, and one of the first practitioners of realism. He is best known for the novels The Charterhouse of Parma and The Red and the Black.

 

"The ordinary procedure of the nineteenth century is that when a powerful and noble personage encounters a man of feeling, he kills, exiles, imprisons or so humiliates him that the other, like a fool, dies of grief."

- Stendhal, The Red and the Black
