Stendhal, my favourite novelist after Tolstoy, is timeless



1 comment:

  1. a. The Italian nobility still use the Church as an employer of last resort for their offspring, that is?

    b. What happened to the populist/MAGAist notion that the globalist elites and the deep state are ruling in despite of that working class?

    c. A similar reflection on America somewhat further into the book concludes "and besides, there is no opera." That one was no longer true by the late 1800s, though to be sure American opera (the business, that is) lacks the roots and vigor of the German or Italian opera.
