    About “André Gide”

    1. André Gide

      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. A tangled web of a novel. Drifts from one character to the next. Good conversations and a pretty exciting plot. Assume everyone is gay until proven otherwise.

    3. Τα 4* για έναν επίλογο ΣΥΓΚΛΟΝΙΣΤΙΚΟ!!!!!! Το τελείωσα με δάκρυα στα μάτια.Είναι αναμφισβήτητα ένα σπουδαίο βίβλίο με πολλά κρυμμένα σοφά μηνύματα περί παιδείας, πατρικών, μητρικών και αδελφικών σχέσεων και φιλίας. Προσωπικά, το βρήκα πολύ ενδιαφέρον στην αρχή, κάπου στη μέση [...]

    4. Este libro es literatura sobre literatura. Es metatexto, es anti-novela, es provocación hecha novela. Eduardo es un hombre que escribe una novela y nosotros (los lectores) leemos el borrador de esa novela. Nos encontramos con fragmentos que no le salen y que él dice que no va a publicarlos, nos encontramos con personajes que aparecen y desaparecen como fantasmas (un ejemplo es Vicente, de quien perdemos el rastro en África). El texto tiene estructura de notas del borrador.¿Por qué André Gi [...]

    5. The Counterfeiters is a book about writing a book, also called "The Counterfeiters". That is the primary theme of the novel which comes from the title of the book by the writer Edouard. Thus The Counterfeiters is a novel-within-a-novel, with Edouard (the alter ego of Gide) writing a book of the same title. Other stylistic devices are also used, such as an omniscient narrator that sometimes addresses the reader directly, weighs in on the characters' motivations or discusses alternate realities. H [...]

    6. This is subtle metafiction since one of the main characters is a writer and the nature of Gide's The Counterfeiters is intellectual, bohemian, philosophical and of its time - for example, Freudian techniques used on a boy are exposited upon and discussed. It follows various people of a social milieu, from schoolboys to new school-leavers, to their parents and relatives, to an old schoolmaster, and is about their relationships and connections: in that sense, it was soap-like. It is also very homo [...]

    7. سكه سازان تصور بى خودى كه كتاب هاى مدرسه از آندره ژيد به من داده بودو عوض كرد و در واقع از جزئياتى كه بهشىن توجه مى كنه و تجربه هايى كه ازشون مى نويسه خيلى خوشم اومد و حتما چيز ديگرى از آندره ژيد خواهم خوند. نكته اين كتاب شخصيت پردازى هاشه، خيلى خوب درومده. آدم دوست داره همه چيزشو [...]

    8. Frömmlerischer Schwulenschmalz*Achtung Rezi in Progress*Persönliche BefangenheitserklärungBin erst mal froh, dass ich's hinter mir habe, aber als Literaturfreund maßlos enttäuscht, auch wenn das Buch für die damalige Schwulen-Szene oder reife Freunde von Knaben, die sich im Dauerringkampf mit ihrem puritanisch-christlichen Erbe befanden, sicher der Brüller war. Hauptmotivation durchzuhalten, war die stilbildende Funktion für Klaus Manns Vulkan, an dessen Eigenheiten ich schon mehr als ei [...]

    9. Gide, Andre. THE COUNTERFEITERS. (1925). ****. This is an extremely complex novel from this distinguished French author (1869-1951) who had apparently published over thirty books during his career. This is the only one he acknowledged as being a novel. I remember, though, being assigned “The Immoralist” to read in college, and was led to believe it was a novel. It was – as far as I could tell – but certainly departed from the novelistic norms. This book does the same. We re introduced to [...]

    10. The Counterfeiters is a book for writers, intellectuals or learners. It's an odd book with crisscrossing themes and story lines. Difficult to follow. (I gave up trying to follow it.) Gide, a winner of the Nobel prize for literature, is an old-time writer, the emphasis being on "writer," rather than "novelist." In those days, there weren't that many writers around and writers often were able to put whatever they wanted in their books.And Gide put a lot in this book. It's just not much of a story. [...]

    11. This book I couldn't figure out. The feeling I get after reading it was similar to the time I read American Psycho. On the surface, you wonder, what's going on? when is this going to get interesting? And you might leave disappointed. There's something subliminal about the Counterfeiters that is beyond my intelligence to figure out. The characters are meshed together in one book, which seem to act as a pressure cooker. Gide, instead of letting the plot twists and turns let the story flow as the c [...]

    12. I finally finished it and am now going to read the journal the author kept while writing this. I mean it's a very long story about writing stories with a lot of characters and sometimes it feels that the line between what the character's are thinking and the what the author is thinking and what the author is thinking of the actual real novel is thin. Supposedly he let the story flow naturally and yet I have a hard time imagining that he could have done so because there are so many little things [...]

    13. Au moment de sa parution, ce livre a été perçu, probablement, comme une révolution idéologique - le roman allait devenir une oeuvre même plus complèxe qui, au lieu de se concentrer seulement sur la simple réalité, soulignait tout d'abord la sensation de l'authentique. De nos jours - presque cent ans après - "Les faux-monnayeurs" risque, parfois, d'ennuyer, de sembler trop long, ayant une action trop riche, décousue et difficile à suivre (des lettres, un journal intime etc). Et, cepen [...]

    14. Ah, God bless the French! (I wonder if it's the first time anyone has ever written that.)I happen to love French writers and, thusly prejudiced, found this book by Andre Gide to be exceptional. A fascinating novel of interlocking characters and their crisscrossing story lines that is widely considered a precursor of the nouveau roman.Relationships of every variety are explored: straight, homosexual, parent/child, bastardy, extra-martial, you name it; a counterfeit coin subplot symbolic of the re [...]

    15. Gide's novel has moments of keen psychological penetration and, for that reason alone, deserves veritable accolades. It's especially informative and interesting to be witness to the progress of the novel in the Appendix, which reads as Gide's diary throughout the writing of The Counterfeiters. Like other reviewers have noted, it breaks from the "traditional" novel mold since it is a novel about writing a novel. Gide also challenges novelistic norms at the time by changing perspectives, which he [...]

    16. Tôi thấy khó chịu với tác phẩm này quá. Diễn biến câu chuyện tạo ra ảo tưởng là cuốn này khá ổn, hứa hẹn sẽ có nhiều biến cố nhưng thế quái nào đọc xong cuốn truyện rồi tôi lại thấy bị hẫng, có cảm giác cuốn sách hổng chỗ này chỗ kia như tổ ong ý. Nhân vật thì nhiều nhưng chắc do sách mỏng nên không được đầu tư nhiều ở khoản cá tính lẫn diễn biến nội tâm. Tôi những t [...]

    17. The reputation of the Faux-Monnayeurs is that it is an experimental novel that succeeds only where it is conventional. Gide's experimentation comes in the form of a magically real angel, multiple narrative points of view combined with more subplots and characters than would normally be considered prudent in a well-controlled work.At 19, I liked it because the author maintained a rapid pace and clearly had great affection for his characters. As well the discussion on homosexuality was new to me. [...]

    18. Εκπληκτικό βιβλίο. Ούτε μια λέξη περιττή. Εισχωρεί με την ακρίβεια χειρουργού στις συμπεριφορές των χαρακτήρων του, στο αίτιο και αιτιατό.

    19. 5/5, because it would feel wrong to give it any less.I read Les Faux-monnayeurs (translated as The Counterfeiters in English) for school, and I went into it with a pretty pessimistic attitude considering it was a required read and I had to read it in French (I tend to read french books slower). But, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised; not only did my attitude towards it change only a few pages in, but I ended up really loving it. Les Faux-monnayeurs was the first book I read by Gide. so I [...]

    20. A novel as much about writing as it is about coded homosexuality in 1920's France (a time, lest we forget, that Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas just about ruled that town). Two rival writers, Edouard and Robert, fall for the same impressionable young boy, Olivier, who decides to run off with Robert, the more famous and less honorable of the two. Edouard, a kind of stand-in for Gide, is Olivier's "uncle" (through marriage), and in the loss of his beloved nephew opts instead of his schoolfriend [...]

    21. Acabo de terminar de leer “Los Monederos Falsos” de Gide, y puede que sea muy pronto, pero creo que ya puedo decir que es uno de mis libros favoritos. Tiene un formato muy inusual, trata sobre la escritura de un libro que se llama Los Monederos Falsos, es decir, es una novela dentro de una novela, y el personaje principal, Eduardo, mueve la trama a través de borradores de la historia, entradas de su diario y reflexiones acerca de su desarrollo. También hay un subtexto homoerótico que marc [...]

    22. where pomo got started? Gide weaves a typical tale of upright bourgeoisie actually being quite immoral scumbags, but oh they have the angle, being lawyers, judges, professors, preachers, so get to do the cover-up and all is well. nixon tried that too, it usually doesn't work. greed, lust, envy, bullying, perversions of all kinds tend to bite you in the ass eventually is a quote, author is talking about book reviews (of his old book) and how he has SO moved on from that and hates his old book and [...]

    23. Segunda leitura: 18 de jul a (?) de ago. de 2016 (*****)Primeira leitura: 26 - 29 de out. de 2014 (*****)Ler "Diário dos Moedeiros Falsos" simultaneamente a "Os Moedeiros Falsos" foi uma experiência borgiana. O diário do romance dentro do diário dentro do romance. Curioso como de início parece que Gide escreve no diário coisas sobre um livro completamente diferente do que estamos lendo, como observamos certas intenções sendo suplantadas, algumas se reduzindo, outras se ampliando, à medi [...]

    24. Lần đầu tiên đọc xong một cuốn sách mà héo hắt cả người.Mấy ngày sau mặt mũi bơ phờ nhìn vào gương bỗng nhiên chợt nhận ra, có thể vì mình đọc quá nhiều sách cùng một lúc, có thể vì công việc nhiều đến nỗi thở không ra hơi, nhưng cũng rất có thể vì cuốn sách này đã khiến người mình quắt quéo lại, như vắt kiệt sức lực để đọc cho đến cùng.Cuốn sách có ý nghĩa như vậy đ [...]

    25. Enjoyed this narrative which describes the complicated relationships amongst a group of men, women and teenaged boys. All the characters are linked in some way to each other, six degrees of separation Andre Gide style.

    26. Je suis très agréablement surprise par cette lecture, que je voyais plutôt comme une corvée à l'origine. Et finalement, j'ai trouvé une certaine modernité à ce roman, un exercice de style plutôt intéressant, qui s'emploie à changer de narrateur régulièrement, et une histoire vraiment intéressante et intrigante. La plume de l'auteur se lit bien, elle est un peu plus soutenue que celles que j'ai l'habitude de lire, mais n'en reste pas moins assez facile à appréhender. Les personnag [...]

    27. بدت لي كأنها قنطرة بين كلاسيكية القرن التاسع عشر وتجريبية القرن العشرين!القليل من كل شيء وبسلاسة ومهارة أصيلةحكائية بلزاك لكن دون إغراقه في التفاصيل، تشريح زوﻻ اﻹجتماعي لكن دون سوداوية أو قساوة، مثالية هوغو/واقعية فلوبير!كرواية أولى لجيد ﻻ بد وأنها حملت أثرا ﻷساليب العما [...]

    28. This is the surprising interwoven and sexually obscure tale of young men in Paris around the turn of the twentieth century. It was written in 1925 and is a rated classic for the `book within a book' style.Uncle Edouard (38) (Gide styled and as a first person journal) is an author in competition with the notorious, fellow author Robert de Passvant. His half-sister Pauline Molinier, married to Oscar, has sons Olivier, Vincent and George (14). The sons are at college with Olivier befriending Bernar [...]

    29. Billed as a frank exploration of same-sex deviance and an exposition of the collapse of morals in 1920’s France, this book is not quite either. It’s a transitional work. Readers wanting a frank look at gay sex are referred to Death on the Installment Plan, where Celine’s two or three shocking vignettes on the subject have never been outdone. And since kids getting away with anything is the grist of modern media, the general state of morality doesn’t especially shock modern readers. But t [...]
