Overview

A contemporary collection of stories by one of France’s finest writers.

Revered by key literary figures including as Balzac and Mérimée, Stendhal is best known for his novels, but his shorter works were just as powerful. In this brand new translation, Susan Ashe brings his greatest Italian stories to the modern reader, whilst staying true to Stendhal’s style and brilliance.

The collection includes:

- The Abbess of Castro
- Vittoria Accordamboni
- The Cenci
- Along with accompanying essays by Charles Dickens, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Stendhal himself.

Together, these stories convey Stendhal’s love of Italy and admiration for the society’s honesty, sincerity, and above all, passion. ‘Roman Tales’ will reaffirm Stendhal as one of the great French masters of the 19th Century.
