Journal Entry 1 by cookiescaucasus from Columbus, Ohio USA on Tuesday, July 5, 2022
Purchased for trade credit in a secondhand bookstore in Tucson, AZ. Read through Professor Barker's "50 Days of The Red and the Black" guided read on Facebook. I'd only just heard of this the semester before when one of my students wrote a book report about it. Well worth a read!

"The son of a carpenter, Julian Sorel is inspired by the writings of Napoleon to conquer the heights of society. His initial plan to work his way up through the church is, however, thwarted when he is forced to accept employment as a tutor--and this rash social entrepreneur certainly has not considered the dangers of falling in love. Stendhal's novel is an amusing and piquant study of hypocrisy and free will in post-Napoleonic France."
