Immoralist by Andre Gide

Book Description

'To know how to free oneself is nothing; the arduous thing is to know what to do with one's freedom' - Andre Gide. Michel had been a blindfold scholar until, newly married, he contracted tuberculosis. His will to recover brings self-discovery and the growing desire to rebel against his background of culture, decency and morality. But the freedom from constraints that Michel finds on his restless travels is won at great cost. And freedom itself, he finds, can be a burden. Gide's novel examines the inevitable conflicts that arise when a pleasure seeker challenges conventional society and, without moralizing, it raises complex issues involving the extent of personal responsibility.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A new translation by Richard Howard of one of Gide's important first person recits which no doubt will replace that of Mrs. Dorothy Bussy of forty years ago. Mr. Howard has tried "to espouse, never to chasten" the tone of the original with all its highstrung intensity. (Kirkus Reviews)
