Item description for L'Immoraliste (Folio) by Andre Gide...

Andre Gide is one of the most representative of twentieth- century French writers. His L'Immoraliste is, in many respects, the most moving and imaginative of his works. The situations depicted are vividly concrete and rich in suggestion. It raises problems of responsibility and freedom, experience and understanding, ethics and action, truth and misrepresentation, and sincerity and rationalization. The subtle underlying interplay of form and intent permits interpretation on several levels according to the intellectual maturity of the reader. The extensive beginning essay in English is designed to alert readers to the many provocative facets of the novel. The editors' notes and vocabulary are never perfunctory; they illuminate, orient, stimulate.

Reviews - What do customers think about L'Immoraliste (Folio)?

Excellent Introduction to the world of Gide  Nov 30, 2003
This book is actually quite accessible to the student of French, compared to many of Gide's other works. It is an excellent introduction to Gide, and comprises an essential part of any student of literature's repertoire. It is still very relevant to our times, and while not as avant-garde or shocking as it must have been at the time of its publication, it is still a fascinating look at human morality and social mores.
L'immoraliste  Dec 1, 2002
Complicated structure. Was difficult to read even at the advanced level. Very depressing story.
