More About The Charterhouse of Parma by Stendhal; John Sturrock
 
 
 
Overview
Headstrong and naive, the young Italian aristocrat Fabrizio del Dongo is determined to defy the wrath of his right-wing father and go to war to fight for Napoleon. He stumbles on the Battle of Waterloo, ill-prepared, yet filled with enthusiasm for war and glory. Finally heeding advice, Fabrizio sneaks back to Milan, only to become embroiled in a series of amorous exploits, fuelled by his impetuous nature and the political chicanery of his aunt Gina and her wily lover. Judged by Balzac to be the most important French novel of its time, "The Charterhouse of Parma" is a compelling novel of extravagance and daring, blending the intrigues of the Italian court with the romance and excitement of youth.
