Review

The Green Huntsman is one of Stendhal’s most absorbing novels. It is, first of all, a remarkable study in the psychology of love. Lucien Leuwen a young cavalry officer from Paris–attractive and rich but of bourgeois stock–finding himself garrisoned and bored in the provincial city of Nancy, presumes to fall in love with a beautiful young widow Bathilde de Chastseller, daughter of an aristocratic family. Seldom have the subtleties of a love affair been so deftly explored. Paul Valery has wirtten that he learned much about love from Lucien Leuwen. The Green Huntsman is also a fascinating historical portrait–of France in the early nineteenth century reign of King Louis-Philippe. After the cataclysm of the Revolution and the glorious but shattered illusions of Napoleonic grandeur, France was atrophying under an induced conservatism while deeply rooted conflicts stirred below the surface of society. Stendhal’s satiric touch makes all this as alive as today’s newspaper. Finally, there is Stendhal himself–always very much present in the heroes of his fiction–surely one of the most extraordinary minds France has ever produced. His ironic wit and insight into character dazzles the reader on every page. There is an infectious self delight in Stendhal’s writing that is unique in world literature.
