I have no basis for comment or comparison at this time as this was my first tentative foray into the world of Andre Gide I don't think it will be my last but I don't think I will be charging out the door to clasp all of his other publications lovingly to my bosom It also seems a little ironic that a gay Frenchman produced one of the best received and highly praised but devoutly and notably chaste novels about the ritual trials and tribulations of heterosexual romance? Gide was alive and kicking in Paris at a time when you could barely walk down the Avenue des Champs Elysées without rubbing shoulders with a literary giant artist or poet The avant garde and the artistic were practicallly falling over each other and no doubt causing endless o

    eBook André Gide ¾ eBook La Porte étroite PDF Ö La Porte Kindle - ¾ optionsaveurs.pro porte epub, étroite mobile, La Porte epub, La Porte étroite ePUBAs with most all of Gide’s best novels this one concerns the anxiety and yearning at the heart of human experience A very young Jerome Palissier regularly spends holidays at the house of his aunt and uncle’s estate in Fongueusemare in rural Normandy One day he happens upon his cousin Alissa who is distraught at her aloof hypochondriacal mother Both desperate to rescue her and drawn by a genuine affection Jerome takes it upon himself to sweep in and rescue her like a good Christian knight errant The subtle imagery of Jerome as a kind of salvific hero is only a foreshadowing of the religious unease that drives this novel forward toward its foreordained conclusion
