Feder or The Moneyed Husband Novel by Stendhal
Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. At the age of seventeen Feder, one of the most well-to-do youths in Marseilles, was expelled from the paternal roof; he had just committed a major error: he had married an actress from the Grand Theatre. His father, a most moral and also rich German merchant long established at Marseilles, used to curse Voltaire and Frech irony twenty times a day; and what perhaps infuriated him most in his son’s peculiar marriage was a few light remarks a la francaise with which the latter sought to justify himself.
Marie-Henri Beyle (23 January 1783 – 23 March 1842), better known by his pen name Stendhal, was a 19th-century French writer. Best known for the novels Le Rouge et le Noir (The Red and the Black, 1830) and La Chartreuse de Parme (The Charterhouse of Parma, 1839), he is highly regarded for the acute analysis of his characters’ psychology and considered one of the early and foremost practitioners of realism. Born in Grenoble, Isère, he was an unhappy child, disliking his “unimaginative” father and mourning his mother, whom he passionately loved, and who died when he was seven. He spent “the happiest years of his life” at the Beyle country house in Claix near Grenoble His closest friend was his younger sister, Pauline, with whom he maintained a steady correspondence throughout the first decade of the 19th century.
