I’ve never read Gide and I’m wondering how he compares with Genet and Celine in particular. See 2 questions about The Counterfeiters…. Lists with This Book. With many characters and crisscrossing plot lines, its main theme is that of the original and the copy, and what differentiates them — both in the external plot of the counterfeit gold coins and in the portrayal of the characters’ feelings and their relationships.
The Counterfeiters is a novel-within-a-novel, with Edouard the alter ego mohederos Gide intending to write a book of the same title. 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. Therefore, the book has been seen as a precursor of the nouveau roman. The structure of the novel was written to mirror “Cubism,” in that it interweaves between several different plots and portrays multiple points of view.
It tells the story gkde a multitude of characters, each of which symbolizes the different incarnations of fzlsos author, declaims all philosophical theories falsoa 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. In the end the story shows the meeting of various personalities of the author.
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. Although it seems madly humiliating to 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 both have a link with another character, Olivier’s.
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. 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 yide was tending to fall back, where andfe were finally rebuilding, and where morals tend to be liberalized.
In the novel, the author gives us to see a literary meeting where we see some great figures of the time, like 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.
Overall we follow the vision of characters who seek to create journals, gude write, to poise, and finally to revolutionize the classical form of writing. A character by the way, named Strouvilhou launches a sketch of the revolutionary ideas that run through the arts at that time, we see him theorizing what could be the surrealists’ desires overall.
Thus, all the characters of Gide seem to be pursued of this greatness and this romantic thrill, all seem poets and artists. There is therefore a lively youth, adults with intelligence that is lost in an excess of everyday life, novelists. Characters tied and endearing. Two characters stand out from the crowd, however, it is Lady Griffith and the Count of Passavant who seem to be the evil gods and manipulators of this story.
They are idle people, who give their esteem only to those who are useful or agreeable to them, but without any honest or reasonable foundation. In this novel, finally, there is also a struggle of intelligence of those who detaches themselves to carry on unknown lands, those struggling to get there, and lo who believe arriving but in reality circling.

Drifts from one character to the next. Good conversations and a pretty exciting plot. Assume everyone is gay until proven otherwise.

El texto tiene estructura de notas del borrador. Gide toca temas importantes y universales: La historia se centra en la vida de dos chicos adolescentes: Los dos abandonan sus casas para poder construir sus vidas. Solo las personas que abandonan sus hogares pueden ser unos seres libres, fuertes, originales, reflexivas.
The Counterfeiters is a book about writing a book, also called “The Counterfeiters”. That is the primary theme of the novel which comes from the title of the book by the writer Edouard. Thus The Counterfeiters is a novel-within-a-novel, with Edouard the alter ego of Gide writing a book of the same title. Other stylistic devices are also used, such as an omniscient narrator that sometimes addresses the reader directly, weighs in on the characters’ motivations or discusses alternate realities.
H The Counterfeiters is a book about writing a book, also called “The Counterfeiters”. However, there is also the story of a group of boys who are passing counterfeit coins throughout Paris.
Thus we have entered a world where we cannot trust our senses — what is counterfeit and what is real? The story of Edouard writing his novel demonstrates his search for knowledge, yet as he associates with a group of his own adolescent relatives it appears as an artificial valsos one that displays the effects upon society of youth’s corruption of traditional standards and values.
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. His life goes downhill as he murders her and goes insane. 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? This learning which is required by the changing nature of the everyday, the quotidian reality that is, perhaps, counterfeit.
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. Another subplot of the novel is homosexuality. Some of the characters are overtly homosexual, like the adolescent Olivier, and the adult writers Count de Passavant and Eduoard. The Count seems to be an evil and corrupting force while the latter is benevolent.
Even when the treatment is not overt, there is a homoerotic subtext that runs throughout, which encompasses Olivier’s friend, Bernard, and their schoolfellows Gontran and Philippe. The main theme of The Counterfeiters underlies the issue of sexuality, morality, and social order and lineage in a unique way for his era. Gide’s novel was not received well on its appearance, perhaps because of its homosexual themes and its unusual composition.
It is this unusual composition that I thought made it an interesting read; along with which the way Gide demonstrates ideas through his characters and their actions much like Dostoevsky and Thomas Mann.
The Counterfeiters has improved its reputation in the intervening years and is now generally counted among the great novels of the twentieth century. 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 mondderos.
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: It is also very homo 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 discussed.
It is also very homoerotic – never directly stated but some of the male main characters are almost certainly gay. It wasn’t the easiest of books to follow but it was good in an interesting way. The denouement cannot spoilhowever, I monfderos not like much because it felt a bit obvious and heavy-handed to me and it rang hollow, so that was a shame.
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. I will say that I gidde find the novel a bit depressing but almost scientifically honest that way because it kind of mirrors what I see and experience about people.
The Counterfeiters by André Gide
I’m sure that says more about me though. Again, I think this is an interesting and philosophical novel – it wove subtly complex webs across my mind. Mar 27, P. Si je me retourne vers moi, je cesse de comprendre ce que ce mot veut dire. Wenn man so will, eher Neobarock als Aufbruch zu neuen Ufern.
Dec 25, Tony rated it really liked it Shelves: This is an extremely complex novel from this distinguished French author who had apparently published over thirty books during his career. This is the only one he acknowledged as being a novel. It was — as far as I could tell — but certainly departed from the novelistic norms. This book does the same. We re introduced to charact Gide, Andre. We re introduced to characters who play small parts and then disappear.
The title is also in jeapordy of acting as a red herring. There is a section about the young boys in the novel attempting to pass off fake gold coins, but the author uses these coins — not to pursue any kind of a mystery story, but to offer them as a metaphor for the fake coins offered by civilizations cultural and religious icons: This is not light reading, but turns out to be well worth it in the end.
I wonder if Gide is still assigned reading in school these days.
