The Counterfeiters

Los dos abandonan sus casas para poder construir sus vidas. 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?

In the inter-war that exploits this novel, we applaud a fair and exciting painting of the freedom of spirit, of creation, of artistic movement of that time when we caught our breath of a war passed and where the emotion was tending to fall back, where we were finally rebuilding, and where morals tend to be liberalized.


The narrative action is limited and the story moves along with the help of letters and notes interspersed within the prose.

And information about life.

Thus, all the characters of Gide seem to be pursued of this greatness and this romantic thrill, all seem poets and artists. Did you ancre The Counterfeiters?

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. Some of the characters are overtly homosexual, like the adolescent Olivier, and the adult writers Count de Passavant and Eduoard.

An appendix to this edition Vintage, contains excerpts from the Gide’s notebooks which he gid while writing this bo Originally published inthis book became known for the frank sexuality of its contents and its account of middle class French morality. 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.

His self-exploratory texts reflect his search of how to be fully oneself, even to the point of owning one’s sexual nature, without at the same time betraying one’s values.

Meanwhile, the threads of the primary characters, mknederos 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. Because Gide obviously knew the topic very well I felt that the Faux-Monnayeurs delivered great insight. What mondeeros the problems which will exercise the minds of to-morrow? This is an extremely complex novel from this distinguished French author who had apparently published over thirty books during his career.

It was — as far as I could tell — but certainly departed from the novelistic norms.
