Une édition de référence de Le Rouge et le Noir de Stendhal, spécialement conçue pour la lecture sur les supports numériques. « Madame de Rênal s’appuya sur son bras, et avec tant d’abandon que sa joue sentit la chaleur de celle de Julien.­Les nuits de ces deux êtres furent bien différentes. Madame de Rênal était exaltée par les transports de la volupté morale la plus élevée. Une jeune fille coquette qui aime de bonne heure s’accoutume au trouble de l’amour ; quand elle arrive à l’âge de la vraie passion, le charme de la nouveauté manque. Comme madame de Rênal n’avait jamais lu de romans, toutes les nuances de son bonheur étaient neuves pour elle. Aucune triste vérité ne venait la glacer, pas même le spectre de l’avenir. Elle se vit aussi heureuse dans dix ans qu’elle l’était en ce moment. L’idée même de la vertu et de la fidélité jurée à M. de Rênal, qui l’avait agitée quelques jours auparavant, se présenta en vain, on la renvoya comme un hôte importun. Jamais je n’accorderai . . .

Author:

centres on an inheritance - Old Harmon's profitable dust heaps - and its legatees, young John Harmon, presumed drowned when a body is pulled out of the River Thames, and kindly dustman Mr Boffin, to whom the fortune defaults. With brilliant satire, Dickens portrays a dark, macabre London, inhabited by such disparate characters as Gaffer Hexam, scavenging the river for corpses; enchanting, mercenary Bella Wilfer; the social climbing Veneerings; and the unscrupulous street-­trader Silas Wegg. The novel is richly symbolic in its vision of death and renewal in a city dominated by the fetid Thames, and the corrupting power of money. The Penguin English Library - 100 editions of the best fiction in English, from the eighteenth century and the very first novels to the beginning of the First World War.
