"The book is a valuable teaching tool and a pleasure to read as well. It contains a wealth of information and a variety of critical approaches conveniently gathered in a single source that normally would have to be extracted from many scattered documents. . . . [This] book provides a solid overview of the problems and pleasures related to reading Stendhal's novel."—Rocky Mountain Review
