In response to Didn't George Sand write in the 1830's also? (nfm), written by Marie-Bernadette on June 30, 1998 at 01:10:45
Thanks for all the information. As I can see, 1830 was a time between movements. Many famous authors were finishing their work or just beginning. We decided to read Sir Walter Scott's "Waverley" next. And, I grew to like Julien Sorel better, especially after he left Madame de Renal's house.
Just prior to reading "The Red and the Black," I read "Far From the Madding Crowd." That was the worst juxtaposition possible. After Gabriel Oak's mature, unselfish love it was hard to read about the insecure self-seeking Julien Sorel. I thought Julien and Mathilde were made for each other and was interested to learn that Stendhal knew someone like that!
