Unfinished novel by Stendhal, published posthumously in 1894. It is perhaps the most autobiographical of Stendhal's fiction. The book follows the career of Lucien, from his expulsion from the Ecole Polytechnique because of his idealism, through his military career (during which he falls in love with a young widow, Mme de Chasteller, but is forced to renounce her), to his career in government service in Paris. In the last section, which was never written, Stendhal had planned to show Lucien in Italy and to resolve the story with a happy ending based on the return of Mme de Chasteller. --Encyclopedia of LIterature
