Marie-Henri Beyle, better known by his pen name Stendhal (/ˈstɒ̃dɑːl, stɛnˈdɑːl, stæn-/; French: [stɛ̃dal, stɑ̃-]), was a 19th-century French writer. Best known for the novels Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black, 1830) and La Chartreuse de Parme (The Charterhouse of Parma, 1839), he is highly regarded for the acute analysis of his characters' psychology and considered one of the earliest and foremost practitioners of realism.
