    L abbesse de Castro est un petit roman crit par Stendhal, qu il place dans un cadre qu il affectionne particuli rement l Italie de la Renaissance J avais d j remarqu dans sa Chartreuse de Parme combien il s tait inspir de la Vie de Benvenuto Cellini qui avait fait ses d lices Sans que Stendhal fasse preuve d une quelconque nostalgie d un hypoth tique bon vieux temps, il ne laisse pas de faire sentir une certaine fascination pour des m urs et circonstances qui donnaient aux hommes un courage et une audace qui n est plus de saison, dans cette Europe post Napol onienne Les actes de bravoure insens s, la brutalit et la violence que l on trouve dans l autobiographie du c l bre artiste, il la transporte dans son h ros, un noble tr s pauvre, mais tr s courageux, qui s prend d une belle jeune fille, h las fille d une famille bien plus riche On ne plaisante pas avec la vertu dans l Italie du XVI me si cle, pas plus qu avec l honneur, et les affaires de c ur non d cid es par les parents peuvent donner lieu de vraies vendettas Toute cette mati re donne l auteur de quoi composer une histoire sans doute sans originalit , mais avec des ...

    Mid 19th century romance adventure tragedy supposedly translated and summarized from old Italian manuscripts, which allows Stendhal some room as an intrusive narrator for commentary on the prevailing attitudes of the 16th century compared to 19th Mostly pretty fun, and with an unforced sense of impending disaster as just inevitable rather than due to authorial machinations and if blame is to be allocated, it seems mostly to go to family, ra...

    Sarebbe stata la gioia e lo stata, per chi lo lesse effettivamente di tutti i vecchi repubblicani mazziniani il clero ipocrita, avido, lussurioso, simoniaco, falso, spergiuro, menzognero e quant altro Chi pi ne ha, pi ne metta Stendhal un grande narratore, anche quando accumula una montagna di stereotipi A proposito, il nobile e brigante nominato nelle prime pagine, Alfonso Piccolomini, non duca di Monte Mariano, ma di Monte Marciano comune nelle Marche in provincia di Ancona , impiccato...

    Praises for the nice bound and convenient edition from the Art of the Novella books Not so much for the book itself Exactly what to make of Stendhal s, The Abbess of Castro As an adventure novel there are plots and raiding parties but it lacks swash to its buckle There is much of the star crossed lovers She the daughter of the richest man in town, he among the poorest, until he morphs into a high order highway man Still as a romance it is too Machiavellian We are told up front that where official justice is limited to those with money enough to buy, the poor must needs turn to the local brigands But the following story never seems to be one about justice Stendhal is one of the early realists, but this is hardly Balzac with blunderbusses A dark satire is likely given the introductory remarks about the lack of law for those who cannot buy it After all satire does not have to be funny, right The book is supposed to be a translation of the actual facts of a 16th century doom love The narrator frequently interjects his thoughts about the pair and their milieu Then he can contrast how the same situation would have played out in the 19th So perhaps satire is the key By the end I was not sure I cared if was intended to be satire.The Abbess of Castro has enough of the elements of romance, a la Romeo and Juliet and the action of Scaramouch to qualify it as family reading The cynicism is de...

    Reminded me very much of medieval romances la Chretien de Troyes, at least in the first part of the book, for its style and content Nothing new or different, seems like Stendhal just decided to mix some Romeo and Juliet style drama with a dash of chanson de geste and roman courtois The second part though feels completely different, almost pertaining to a different story, the characters develop in a sudden way, just like the writing and style Not without a reason it is based on an old Italian manuscript narrating a certain event which I won t reveal here hate spoilering.The event offered very good material but Stendhal just couldn t resist some extra drama that suits a medieval author specializing in legends and poems which I m actual...

    Fun, quick read Don t think too much, just enjoy the sword fighting and the extreme emotional swings of the protagonist and to a certain extent the author the absurdity of which I immensely enjoyed Death or glory

    Una lettura deludente malgrado si tratti di un libro breve, Stendhal riesce a essere prolisso quando non deve e reticente dove dovrebbe raccontare di pi Interessante il panorama dei castelli romani nel 500, e i giochi politici nel regno del Papa Per avrei sperato in qualcosa di pi.
