INTRODUCTION

lih

The Rouge et Noir tables afford an excellent subject of study to the anatomist of the human heart: the mask which is worn in the street, at the banquet, even in the domestic circle, here falls off; and men become transformed, as it were, into the naked Passions themselves. Nor can the peculiarities of national, like those of individual character, be anywhere placed in stronger opposition.

Our countrymen generally play with a flushed cheek or an anxious eye, but seldom betray beyond this their pain and disappointment.
