Books by André Gide

Would you like to tell us about a lower price? He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature in The Pastoral Symphony in French, La Symphonie Pastorale was one of his more famous novels and was originally published in While translating this novel I thought it would make an excellent subject for a movie.

I subsequently looked it up, and sure enough, a film was produced by the fide name in France in in the French language.

No one in the modern world would have ande trouble recognizing the emotions of the characters, however, which are timeless. A Protestant pastor who lives in the Alps of Switzerland almost give upon a blind girl who is about to become an orphan since her aunt just died. The aunt was deaf and never spoke, so the blind girl also seemed to be deaf and speechless as well.


The pastor feels that God has called him to care for this child, and he decides to take her home with him. This causes not only consternation in his household but the unfolding of many other events as well.

The book is short, so any interested reader will not have to wait long to discover what unfolds. Be aware that blindness is a major theme of this story in more ways than one. I hope readers enjoy this translation of a classic French gife by a Nobel Laureate. Read more Read less. Kindle Cloud Reader Read instantly in your browser.

I thought Gertrude was vivacious, and the pastor’s mental gymnastics were interesting as he tried to justify his illicit love for her.

But then she was cured of her blindness and felt so guilty about what she had done, she killed herself.

Before she died she confided to the pastor that what she had imagined when she made love to him was more like his son Jacques than him. A blind woman doesn’t know whether she is being bonked by a middle-aged man or a handsome young stud?

I just don’t get it, I guess.

Anyway, as a blind person, I find this story insensitive and demeaning. Andrf no, I don’t believe it should be made into another movie. One person found this helpful. A classic that doesn’t bore you to tears is.


If that is what you’re looking for the Pastoral Symphony is for you.
