  • Stendhal's Parallel Lives By Francesco Manzini Alan Raitt, This book deals with the important and hitherto neglected relationship between the works of Stendhal and Plutarch s Parallel Lives Stendhal s readings of Plutarch are shown to inform his literary representations of Revolution and Empire, Restoration and Orleanism, as well as his theorizations of Romanticism In particular, the Plutarchan concept of Parallel Lives is usedThis book deals with the important and hitherto neglected relationship between the works of Stendhal and Plutarch s Parallel Lives Stendhal s readings of Plutarch are shown to inform his literary representations of Revolution and Empire, Restoration and Orleanism, as well as his theorizations of Romanticism In particular, the Plutarchan concept of Parallel Lives is used to analyse one of the major themes of Stendhal s writing the self construction of individual identity, whether auto biographical or fictional, by means of the emulation as distinct from the imitation of heroic exemplars As a consequence, the balance between irony and idealism often identified by critics in Stendhal s work is shown rather to be an imbalance, weighted in favour of an idealism derived from Plutarchan conceptions of heroism, particularly as they are represented in the Lives of Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus.
