Les Faux monnayeurs Reader Á 418 pages Download ✓ [Ebook] ➩ Les Faux monnayeurs By André Gide – Johns-cycling-diary.co.uk “Romance de um romance ue se escreve” como diria o protagonista Com estilo notoriamente refinado e inovações ue marcaram época Gide prescinde da cronologia e estrutura narrativa tradicionaO Os moedeiros falsos não são para Gide apenas os jovens ue escoam dinheiro fraudulento mas os falsários no espírito e na letra todos os ue vivem na mentira de sentimentos falso 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 characters lead them to following their respective personalities and conflicts Edouard's journal's his efforts with HIS own version of the Counterfeiters how much of that reflects the novel? Which begs the uestion how mcuh of it reflects Gide's life at least in the time of writing?The form of the novel is uniue depending on which version you pick up It's probably better to pick up the one with Gide's own journals and also the appendix One of the story is about writing about writing So it follows with Gide's journals the book is about writing about writing about writing among its many themes Gide tried to fit as much as he knew in one book That in itself should be respected It does tend to get messy at times due to Gide's ambitions but you should just press onThe English version translation I got out from my library the only one by Bussy wasn't great But I'm not sure what other translations are like If you could read French though that may be the best asset for reading this book

André Gide ò Les Faux monnayeurs Epub

Les Faux monnayeurs“Romance de um romance ue se escreve” como diria o protagonista Com estilo notoriamente refinado e inovações ue marcaram época Gide prescinde da cronologia e estrutura narrat 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 However there is also the story of a group of boys who are passing counterfeit coins throughout Paris Thus we have entered a world where we cannot trust our senses what is counterfeit and what is real? The story of Edouard writing his novel demonstrates his search for knowledge yet as he associates with a group of his own adolescent relatives it appears as an artificial arrangement; one that displays the effects upon society of youth's corruption of traditional standards and values The collapse of morality is illustrated with Eduoard's nephew Vincent who deserts his lover Laura a married woman and runs away with Lillian the mistress of Count Robert de Passavant His life goes downhill as he murders her and goes insane There is also the coming of age story of Bernard and Olivier as they prepare to leave school but does this extend beyond their education and emanate from all who are learning about the world? This learning which is reuired by the changing nature of the everyday the uotidian reality that is perhaps counterfeitI found the details of Edouard's struggles with his career his family his friendships and love provide images that enhance the main themes yet also provide narrative drive Another subplot of the novel is homosexuality Some of the characters are overtly homosexual like the adolescent Olivier and the adult writers Count de Passavant and Eduoard The Count seems to be an evil and corrupting force while the latter is benevolent Even when the treatment is not overt there is a homoerotic subtext that runs throughout which encompasses Olivier's friend Bernard and their schoolfellows Gontran and Philippe The main theme of The Counterfeiters underlies the issue of sexuality morality and social order and lineage in a uniue way for his era Gide's novel was not received well on its appearance perhaps because of its homosexual themes and its unusual composition It is this unusual composition that I thought made it an interesting read; along with which the way Gide demonstrates ideas through his characters and their actions much like Dostoevsky and Thomas Mann The Counterfeiters has improved its reputation in the intervening years and is now generally counted among the great novels of the twentieth century
