About Author

  1. Andr Paul Guillaume Gide was a French author and winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1947 Gide s career ranged from its beginnings in the symbolist movement, to the advent of anticolonialism between the two World Wars.Known for his fiction as well as his autobiographical works, Gide exposes to public view the conflict and eventual reconciliation between the two sides of his personality, split apart by a straight laced education and a narrow social moralism Gide s work can be seen as an investigation of freedom and empowerment in the face of moralistic and puritan constraints, and gravitates around his continuous effort to achieve intellectual honesty His self exploratory texts reflect his search of how to be fully oneself, even to the point of owning one s sexual nature, without at the same time betraying one s values His political activity is informed by the same ethos, as suggested by his repudiation of communism after his 1936 voyage to the USSR.

  2. Je n aime pas les hommes j aime ce qui les d vore What is a free act And is there such a thing Over the course of a few decades Andr Gide 1869 1951 , who imbibed Calvinism and all of its ideology of predestination with his mother s milk and then struggled with himself in a lengthy attempt to pull its roots out of his soul, mulled over this problem repeatedly And, as was his wont, he worked this particular obsession along with all the others he had into his highly polished and extremely sophistic [...]

  4. Extra o, pero no me arrepiento de leerlo Es un libro que te deja pensando bastante, y tal vez el no entenderle bien a la historia te hace reflexionar m s y mejor sobre lo que le ste Al menos as me ha pasado a mi Es el primer libro que leo de Gide, y lo recomendar a y me interesar a leer alguna otra de sus obras.

  6. Personalmente considero que la primera mitad del libro es completamente innecesaria, estuve a punto de dejar de leerlo y odie a Gide como nunca habia odiado a un escritor, y a final de cuentas solo me gusaron dos partes, esas son en las cuales hablan prometeo y zeus, donde Gide habla de su percepcion de el titan y el dios, y eso siempre es bienvenido, pero mas alla de eso, el resto fue bastane exasperante.pd nuca volvere a leer nada mas de Gide, lo prometo, he terminado contigo.


  7. Lo que parec a que ser a un divertimento absurdo tiene profundas connotaciones sobre el destino, Dios, las creencias, etc en un juego metaliterario sobre la figura m tica de Prometeo Bastante raro, pero interesante.


  8. Me agrad la propuesta Es interesante y especialmente actual, donde Gide procura elaborar una nueva obra pero manteniendo elementos necesarios para establecer el v nculo Tiene sus partes c micas, pero tambi n mucha conciencia social
