Contemporary readers did not fully appreciate Stendhal's realistic style during the Romantic period in which he lived; he was not fully appreciated until the beginning of the twentieth century. He dedicated his writing to "the Happy Few," referring to those who would one day recognize his own genius. Today, Stendhal's works attract attention for their irony, their psychological complexity and their historical insights. Au, Susan (2002). Ballet and Modern Dance - Second Edition.

Through the patronage of aristocrats including Philippe I, Duke of Orléans—the brother of Louis XIV—Molière procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre. Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, The Doctor in Love, Molière was granted the use of salle du Petit-Bourbon near the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances. Later, he was granted the use of the theatre in the Palais-Royal. In both locations, Molière found success among Parisians with plays such as The Affected Ladies, The School for Husbands, and The School for Wives. This royal favour brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi ("The King's Troupe"). Molière continued as the official author of court entertainments.

Münchener Studien zur Literaturwissenschaft).During his time with the consulate, Stendhal uncovered records of crimes of passion and frightful executions during the time of the Renaissance which would become an inspiration for a series of short stories he published during this period. It was not until 1836, however, when Stendhal at last returned to Paris, that he had the stamina to resume serious intellectual work. In 1839 he published his second masterpiece, Le Chartreuse de Parme ("The Charterhouse of Parma"). He began work on a third major work, but died of a stroke in 1842 before it was completed. Marie-Henri Baille was born in Grenoble, Isère, on 23 January 1783, into the family of the advocate and landowner Chérubin Beyle and his wife Henriette Gagnon. He was an unhappy child, disliking his "unimaginative" father and mourning his mother, whom he loved fervently, and who died in childbirth in 1790, when he was seven. [6] [7] He spent "the happiest years of his life" at the Beyle country house in Claix near Grenoble. [ citation needed] His closest friend was his younger sister, Pauline, with whom he maintained a steady correspondence throughout the first decade of the 19th century. His family was part of the bourgeois class of the Ancien Regime, which explains his ambiguous attitude toward Napoleon, the Bourbon Restoration, and the monarchy lateron.

The realistic note that runs through Stendhal's literary endeavors — fictional, biographical, documentary, critical, and journalistic — stems from his need to anchor himself solidly in reality as a point of departure. Everything he wrote begins in the realm of facts. He imposes his impressions and transforms reality, but it is a reality exterior to himself that furnishes the plot or subject matter.

The hotel is perfectly located for culture vultures with The Musée d'Orsay and The Louvre under ten minutes on foot. Today, Stendhal's works attract attention for their irony and psychological and historical dimensions. Stendhal was an avid fan of music, particularly the works of the composers Domenico Cimarosa, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Gioacchino Rossini. He wrote a biography of Rossini, Vie de Rossini (1824), now more valued for its wide-ranging musical criticism than for its historical content. He also idealized aristocracy, noting its antiegalitarianism but appreciating how it is liberal in its love of liberty. [30]In 1830 the July Revolution reinstated King Louis Philippe to the throne of France, and Stendhal found himself once again in the favor of the ruling political party. He was appointed as a consul to the Papal city of Civitavecchia, which, unfortunately, he found to be a punishment rather than a reward. The position entailed an endless amount of administrative paper shuffling, Stendhal found the town itself to be isolated and droll, and the ultimate consequence of this appointment was the great writer found it almost impossible to write. Lonely and bored, Stendhal turned to writing autobiographical works, two memoirs entitled Souvenirs d'Egotisme and Vie de Henri Brulard ("Memoirs of an Egoist" and "The Life of Henri Brulard") and an autobiographical novel, Lucien Leuwen, none of which he would finish, but which, when published nearly 60 years after his death in their incomplete form, were heralded as some of his finest writings.
