Unfinished autobiography by Stendhal, which he began writing in November 1835 and abandoned in March 1836. The scribbled manuscript, including the author's sketches and diagrams, was deciphered and published as Vie de Henry Brulard in 1890, 48 years after its author's death. The work is a masterpiece of ironic self-searching and self-creation, in which the memories of childhood are closely interwoven with the liberating joy of writing. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
