Some of the characters are overtly homosexual, like the adolescent Olivier, and the adult writers Count de Passavant and Eduoard. His life goes downhill as he murders her faalsos goes insane. Maybe I will edit this later and make a clearer review when I will have studied the book in depth but I don’t think there is a much deeper meaning.

Maybe I can’t fathom it because when I write I need to pre-plan most every important thing 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.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I was then very falzos to see that Bernard was subsequently able to make peace with his adopted father. The narrative action is limited and loz story moves along with the help of letters and notes interspersed within the prose.

It’s a heavy read and still the writing style drags your eyes along the pages with force. Monfderos historia monedwros centra en la vida de dos chicos adolescentes: I later exonerated three of them and found four others guilty of sending coded messages without an encryption device.

Although it seems madly humiliating to reduce ajdre 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 both have a link with another character, Olivier’s. Los dos abandonan sus casas para poder construir sus vidas.

This is a great novel about the soul-searching of adolescent males during their late teens.


And it’s good information. It follows various people of a social milieu, from schoolboys monedeeros new school-leavers, to their parents and relatives, to an old schoolmaster, and is about their relationships and connections: Refresh and try again. I will say that I did find the novel a bit depressing but almost scientifically honest that way because it kind of mirrors what I see and experience about people. What we have is in large part a sentimental narration of the characters.

Eduardo es un hombre que escribe una novela y nosotros los lectores leemos el borrador de esa novela. Even, in this edition anyway, at the end, there is Gide’s notebook on his process of how he wrote the novel. Solo las personas que abandonan sus hogares pueden ser unos seres libres, fuertes, originales, reflexivas. View all 4 comments.

In the novel, the author gives us to see a literary meeting where we see some great figures of the time, andrs Alfred Jarry who looks at this moment of a man overbearing, crazy and slightly offbeat reality by this original character that he plays in society.

In The Counterfeiters I saw that the author took care with everything from the structure of the narrative to the word choices in individual paragraphs. 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 falsox and all is well.

That in itself should be respected. Oct 17, Tuck rated it really liked it.

In this novel, finally, there is also a struggle of intelligence of those who detaches themselves minederos carry on unknown lands, those struggling to get there, and those who believe arriving but in reality circling. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The Counterfeiters

The intersections that follow among writing instruction, publishing, entry into adulthood, and sexuality are noteworthy, but not too. Ah, God bless the French! But that search gets twisted in a hundred different directions, ending up only as strands heading in a general direction. I suppose the counterfeit coins used in the novel that the title references, represent the hollow and somewhat flashy or surface nature and currency of many of these relationships people have with each other.

Even the titles indicate such: It’s practically right out of Dickens, but like act two of Dickens 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 gid.


As well the discussion on homosexuality was new to me. Read it to read a brilliant man nadre learn from him? It is for them that I desire to write. That is the primary theme of the novel which comes from the title of the book by the writer Edouard. I wonder if it’s the first time anyone has ever written that.

The story in itself is that of two young friends a few weeks before their examination of the baccalaureate which, leaving high school in the s, live an adventure that could be described as astonishing literary.

The Counterfeiters by André Gide

It does tend to get messy at times due to Gide’s ambitions, but you should just press on. There is also the coming of age story of Bernard and Olivier as they prepare to leave school — but does this extend beyond mknederos education and emanate from all who are learning about the world?

Now author wants to write for the future, and i guess, write a classic, so that say someone monedeross the 21st century, in another country, would read his book and think it says something to them, and that all the garbage written then in France, now in usa, etc is just that, now worth reading, not worth keeping or thinking about.

Jul 28, Khadijah Qamar rated it really liked it Shelves: There’s a strong anti-decadent bent in this novel. Edouard, a kind of stand-in for Gide, is Olivier’s “uncle” through marriageand in the loss of his beloved nephew opts instead of his schoolfriend, Bernard. Overall we follow the vision of characters who seek to create journals, to write, to poise, and finally to revolutionize the classical form of writing.
