Daily Dose

From The Charterhouse of Parma, by Stendhal, translation by Richard Howard


"But here I must seek an epic style: where else might I find colors to limn the torrents of indignation which suddenly flooded all respectable hearts when they learned of the dreadful insolence of that illumination of the villa at Sacca?"

From Chapter Twenty-Three
