Narraciones y esbozos (Clásica Maior)

Se recoge en este volumen l. a. práctica totalidad, exceptuando las llamadas Crónicas italianas, de los relatos de Stendhal. El lector podrá encontrar aquí cuentos bastante conocidos como Mina de Vanghel, El bebedizo o El cofre y el fantasma, pero sobre todo un buen número de piezas inéditas o que llevaban muchísimo tiempo sin ser traducidas en español. Rosa y verde, largo esbozo de una novela sobre una rica heredera que no quiere ser amada por sus millones, o Féder o el marido adinerado, historia de los amores de un joven pintor de miniaturas con l. a. mujer de un pretencioso terrateniente de provincias, son textos brillantes y destacadísimos en l. a. obra de su autor.
María Teresa Gallego Urrutia ha reunido y traducido diecinueve Esbozos y narraciones en los que Stendhal desmenuza l. a. pasión romántica y l. a. exaltación típica de sus héroes y heroínas, cuya alma es «demasiado ardiente para conformarse con l. a. realidad de l. a. vida». El ojo analítico, l. a. trama desmesurada, los angeles seducción de los angeles impostura así como de los angeles autenticidad, y los angeles crítica de una sociedad que ha enterrado en l. a. ironía el sentimiento más important dirigen el rumbo de estos magníficos relatos mientras, al fondo, suena música de Mozart.

Henri Beyle, Stendhal a partir de los angeles publicación de su tercer libro, nació en 1783 en Grenoble, «cuartel basic de los angeles ruindad», hijo de un abogado del Parlamento. Estudió en su ciudad natal y en 1799 marchó a París para ingresar en los angeles Escuela Politécnica, cosa que nunca llegó a hacer. Un año después se alistó en el Ejército y tomó parte en las campañas de Alemania, Austria y Rusia de Napoleón, a quien siempre vería como un héroe. Tras los angeles derrota, en 1814, se exilió voluntariamente en Milán.
En 1815, publicó, bajo pseudónimo, su primera obra, las Cartas sobre Haydn, Mozart y Metastasio y en 1817, los angeles Historia de los angeles pintura en Italia y Roma, Nápoles y Florencia, esta última ya como Stendhal.
Perseguido por liberal, tuvo que dejar Milán, y, entre Londres y París, empezó a frecuentar los salones literarios. Su ensayo Del amor aparecería en 1822; su primera novela, Armancia (1827), los angeles publicó sin nombre en París, y sería seguida en 1830 por una de sus obras capitales, Rojo y negro.
En 1831 fue nombrado cónsul en Civitavecchia, en los Estados Pontificios. Su otra gran novela, La Cartuja de Parma, aparecería en 1839. Una selección aforística de pasajes sobre el amor puede encontrarse en Diccionario del amor. Murió en París en 1842. En su tumba mandó grabar el nombre de Arrigo Beyle, milanese.
