Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group. Moderated by Ethical NYC member Gunther Tielemans. 1st and 3rd Wednesdays.
Stendhal narrates a young aristocrat’s adventures in Napoleon’s army and in the court of Parma, illuminating in the process the whole cloth of European history.
This yarn is an epic and yet intimate tale of political intrigue and erotic frustration. Almost since the moment it appeared it has been considered a masterpiece.
