The Charterhouse of Parma (Penguin Classics)
Headstrong and naive, the young Italian aristocrat Fabrizio del Dongo is determined to defy the wrath of his right-wing father and go to war to fight for Napoleon. He stumbles on the Battle of Waterloo, ill-prepared, yet filled with enthusiasm for war and glory. This work blends the intrigues of the Italian court with the excitement of youth.
