André Gide Social Network




His disillusionment with the communist doctrine was expressed in his contribution to 'The God That Failed' (1949). During the Second World War he lived in Tunis.


He was praised by his friends, such as Marcel Proust, Paul Claudel, Paul Valéry and others; their correspondence was published in 1948. Gide collaborated with Sergei Diaghilev on a ballet production for the "Seasons Russes" in Paris. He was a regular member of 'literary Fridays' and developed a good friendship with Gertrude Stein.


Gide was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature (1947).


Gide's wife Madeleine died in 1938 after an unconsummated marriage. Andre Gide was an admirer of Fyodor Dostoevsky from his youth.


Gide briefly associated with French communists, but he repudiated the Soviet communism after his 1936 voyage to the Soviet Union.


In 'Les faux-monnayeurs' and 'Le journal des feux-monnayeurs' (The Couterfreiters, 1926) he exposed the self-deception and counterfeit personality of the protagonist, Edouard, who falls in love with his nephew.


In 1923 Gide conceived a daughter named Catherine with his girlfriend Elisabeth van Rysselberghe.

In 1923 he published a collection of his lectures on Dostoyevsky, in which he reconstitutes the writer's personality through the traits of the characters of his books.


"In his 'La symphonie pastorale' (The Pastoral Symphony, 1919) Gide revealed the hypocrisy behind the mask of a pastor, who adopted a blind orphan girl. Pastor seduces the girl on the eve of her eye surgery; she opens her eyes only to see the ugly truth about people, then commits suicide.


Gide was alluding to his own relationship with his adopted son Marc Allegret, with whom he eloped to London in 1916.


At that time Gide prepared the first public release of his 'Corydon', which was initially published privately in 1911. It received widespread condemnation, but was considered by Gide his most important work.


His serious illness and a near-death experience there, gave him material for his "twin" psychological novels 'l'immoraliste' (The Immoralist, 1902) and 'La porte etroite' (Strait is the Gate, 1909). In dialogues between the inner narrator and the outer narrator Gide tackled the Shakesperian question, reformulated as "to be free" vs "to get freedom.


Gide's early collection of prose and poetry 'Les nourritues terrestres' (Fruits of the Earth, 1897), gained popularity, influencing Guillaume Apollinaire, Albert Camus, and Jean-Paul Sartre, as well as a generation of young writers.


In 1893 and 1894 Gide made voyages to North Africa, where he learned different moral and sexual conventions. In Algiers he met Oscar Wilde and the two became close friends.


His first book 'Les Cahiers d'Andre Walter' (The Notebooks of Andre Walter, 1891) was well received by his friend Stéphane Mallarmé.
