About the Book

Stendhal wrote a book titled The Charterhouse of Parma, which was first published in 1839. The Charterhouse of Parma chronicles the adventures of Fabrice del Dongo from his birth in 1798 to his death.Field Marshal Ney's guard is momentarily joined by Fabrice, who then encounters the man who could be his father. While Gina works to have Fabrice released, the Prince of Parma plans to lock him up for a period of twelve years. Fabrice, meantime, is content with his life as a result of his love for Clélia Conti, the commandant's daughter. Gina, Countess Mosca, marries Count Mosca but leaves him for Count Fabrice since she had always loved Fabrice. After 14 months of misery for both of them, she consents to visit him every night, provided that it is in the dark, lest she violates her promise to the Madonna to never see him again and bear the consequences of her transgression. She gives birth to Fabrice's kid a year later, and the pair pretend the baby died so Fabrice wouldn't perish. In less than a year after retiring to a Carthusian monastery, Fabrice passes away.
