Through a witty analogy Stendhal suggested that the initial manifestation of love is no more than a "crystallization" about the loved one of qualities the lover wishes to find in him or her--a matter (to use a later terminology) of projection and ego-satisfaction little dependent upon the real qualities of the person who is loved.

 Stendhal Reviews
Unfortunately, the pure brilliance of Stendhal was lost on this crowd: they weren't "loud" or "hard" enough for this crowd of young punks (who were probably missing their curfew to be there)...
Granted, while Stendhal consumes its listeners with a spiraling wash of calculated freakouts (a la Red Crayola or Cromagnon) the theatrics are tempered with echoes of new wave enthusiasm (a la Jesus and Mary Chain or contemporaries Aerial Love Feed).
Stendhal harkens back more to the early days of the movement (hell, I can even hear some influence from King Crimson at times) rather than trying to compare them to any modern acts as they experiment more with a physical sound than something that is computer generated.

Much of this work is reflective of the early punk/goth transition, yet with the added machinations of objects that were never meant to be used as part of a music venue, they clearly brought the underground world full circle.

 The Red and the Black - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stendhal uses his flawed hero to satirize French society of the time, particularly the hypocrisy and materialism of its aristocracy and the Catholic Church, and to foretell a radical change in French society that will remove both of those forces from their positions of power.
At the time Stendhal wrote The Red and the Black, the prose in novels included dialogue or omniscient descriptions, but Stendhal's great contribution was to spend much of the novel inside the characters' heads, describing their feelings and emotions and even their inner conversations.
Stendhal's style was highly allusive, with copious references to the works of Voltaire, Friedrich Schiller, and William Shakespeare; quotes from Racine's play Phèdre and Byron's Don Juan; and to philosophers and thinkers who influenced Stendhal, such as John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

Stendhal s'est souvent vanté d'écrire pour un petit nombre de ses contemporains : "J'écris pour des amis inconnus, une poignée d'élus qui me ressemblent : les happy few." indique-t-il dans la Vie d'Henry Brulard.
A une époque où régnait le goût des envolées lyriques, Stendhal a eu en horreur l'éloquence et l'emphase.
Dès 1821, Stendhal, qui décidément n'accordait que peu de confiance à ses contemporains, avait composé lui-même son épitaphe, en italien : "Henri Beyle, Milanais, vécut, aima, écrivit.

They call it "Stendhal's syndrome" because the 19th-century French novelist is said to have been the first to write about the dizzying disorientation some tourists experience when they encounter masterpieces of the Italian Renaissance.
Crowded Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, a city where palaces and monuments submerge the visitor, where each stone has a story, each corner a legend, is literally driving some tourists out of their mind.
For decades, the malaise was known as the "tourist disease." Stendhal, visiting Florence for the first time in 1817, suffered a mild attack of the madness.

 Stendhal Biography | Dictionary of Literary Biography
Among the four greatest novelists of nineteenth-century France, Stendhal is noteworthy for the intensity of conscience and feeling in his characters, and for beginning his publication of fictional works later in life than did Honoré de Balzac, Gustave Flaubert, and Emile Zola.
Stendhal was usually preoccupied with self-image, and as a result he was by turns timid or brazen, sensitive or cynical, evasive or forthright, never sure of how he was being perceived by others.
These aspects of his personality appear in the portraits of his heroes and in his narrative technique, but they may also account for his waiting until age forty-four to publish his first novel.
