Summary :

The Red and The Black is a novel detailing the rise of a young character named Julien Sorel in early 19th century france society. The novel satirizes French Restoration society as Julien bounces between his dreams of taking up the military red and pursuing the clerical black. Filled with ambition and hypocrisy yet strongly sympathetic, Julien is perhaps one of the most powerful characters of 19th century fiction.
