The Counterfeiters by André Gide

Relationships of every variety are explored: A tangled web of a novel. Los dos abandonan sus casas para poder construir sus vidas. Other stylistic devices are also used, such as an omniscient narrator who sometimes addresses the reader directly, weighs in on the characters’ motivations or discusses alternate realities.

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.

But that search gets twisted in a hundred different directions, ending up only as strands heading in a general direction. Somewhere in my reading, in fact, I began assuming any male character was gay until proven otherwise. It reminds me of The Way of All Flesha 19th century bildungsroman centering on an uncle and his nephew, with winks to the discerning reader.

And it’s good information. 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. The narrative action is limited and the story moves along with the help of letters and notes interspersed within the prose.

They will continue the adventure together but we will have their points of view to both, on each side, which will give us the impression of two parallel paths rather than a common history.


andrw 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? Even the titles indicate such: I was then very glad to see that Bernard was subsequently able to make peace with his adopted father.

You want to go forward and get closer to the characters perhaps because they’re so beautifully painted. Open Preview See a Problem?

Toklas just about ruled that town. And yet in the process much insightful information about art and the artistic process is provided. 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: I gave up trying to follow it.

I 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. The novel has that 19th-century breadth of including everyone from the aristocracy to the poor girl pregnant out of wedlock. The structure of the novel was written to mirror “Cubism,” in that it interweaves between several different plots and portrays multiple points of view.

I finally finished it and am now going to read the journal the author kept while writing this. Gide’s career ranged from its beginnings in the symbolist movement, to the advent of anticolonialism between the two World Wars.

The Counterfeiters

Edouard’s journal’s, his efforts with HIS own version of the Counterfeiters, how much of that reflects the novel? It tells the story of a multitude of characters, each of which symbolizes the different incarnations of the author, declaims all philosophical theories on the novel and art and human relations and develops them up to convince the reader, just before continuing in another character taken in a new context generally an idea that has everything contradictory and which appears to us just as right.


The story of Edouard writing his novel demonstrates his search for knowledge, yet as he associates with a group of his own lls relatives it appears as an artificial arrangement; one that displays the effects upon society of youth’s corruption of traditional standards and values. 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.

Although it seems madly humiliating mohederos reduce the story to the story of these two heroes, because around them, it is a whole web of heroes who have their own stories, but all these stories have a link between thema link for the characters, family or friendly or knowledge, as for example Bernard and Edward who meet by the chances of their two adventures, they realize that they monedero have a link with another character, Olivier’s.

Meanwhile, the threads of the primary characters, who I assume to be Olivier, Bernard, and Edouard, neatly sort themselves out without any significant developments, excluding some juvenile angst on the part of Olivier. In conclusion, it’s more of a “slice of life” narrative rather than a novel, and although Gide has moments of clever insights, in the end the story will likely leave the reader under-served.

Jan 09, Stephen rated it it was amazing. The Count seems to be an evil and corrupting force while the latter is benevolent. The title is also in jeapordy of acting as a red herring.

And information about life.
