The Immoralist de André Gide Résumés

"A serious purpose underlies the work of Gide, and t is from such purposes that great novelists arise."- The New York Times First ublished in 1902 and immediatel assailed forits themes of omnisexual abandon and perverse aestheticism, THE IMMORALIST is the novelthat launched Andre Gide's reputatio as one of France's most audacious literary stylists, a groundbreaking work that opens the door onto a universe of unfettered umpulse whose possibiliities still seem exhilarating and shocking. Gide's protagonist is the frail, scholarly Michel, who shortly after his wedding nearly dies of tuberculosis. He recovers only through the ministrations of his wife, Marceline, and his sudden, ruthless determination to live a life unencumbered by God or values. What ensues is a wild flight into the realm of the senses that culminates in a remote outpost in the Sahara- where Michel's hunger for new experiences at any cost bears lethal consequences. THE IMMORALIST is a book with the power of an erotic fever dream- lush, prophetic, and eerily seductive. Translated from the French by Richard Howard

The Immoralist de André Gide Résumés

André Gide is a very famous French author. He was the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947. L’immoraliste was one of his more famous novels and was originally published in 1902, early in Gide’s career, but he had already published close to a dozen other books by then. This is the story of how a man’s personality changed after he had a close brush with death due to a serious illness, and how he formed a new vision of both the society he lived in and of himself as well. It is also the story of his wife, Marceline, and their developing relationship.The narrator of the story is Michel, who is an academic from Paris who was an expert in languages. In fact he was a philologist, which Wikipedia defines as “the study of literary texts and written records, the establishment of their authenticity and their original form, and the determination of their meaning.” Thus, his life revolved around the past. He followed his father into this field, and through him developed his own reputation in the field and found critical acclaim.Michel begins by calling his closest friends, who have not seen him since his wedding to Marceline, to his side in a faraway land. He explains why he did this, “The only relief that I am looking for is to speak to you, for I am at a point in life where I cannot go on. It is not from fatigue, but I do not understand any longer. I have a need…I have a need to speak, I tell you.” His story is the book. He traces his personal transformation from a person whose life revolved around the past into one who rejects that and who cares only for the present and the future. In addition, he changes from being a sort of egg-head intellectual into a person who is acutely aware of his feelings and his physical body. He also tells about his life and travels with Marceline, and how she cared for him during his illness, and how he… I think I will stop there and not give too much away in this description. The book is rather short, so readers will not have to wait long to find out what happened. Why is Michel immoral? I think he shows immorality at times on several levels, but that is a question the reader should keep asking himself as he reads through the book. I personally don’t see anything obvious and glaring here, so it comes out in hints here and there. Other readers might disagree.I hope readers enjoy this translation of a famous classic French novel by a Nobel Laureate.

Nietzsche: The Ethics of an Immoralist de Peter Berkowitz Résumés

Once regarded as a conservative critic of culture, then enlisted by the court theoreticians of Nazism, Nietzsche has come to be revered by postmodern thinkers as one of their founding fathers, a prophet of human liberation who revealed the perspectival character of all knowledge and broke radically with traditional forms of morality and philosophy.In Nietzsche: The Ethics of an Immoralist, Peter Berkowitz challenges this new orthodoxy, asserting that it produces a one-dimensional picture of Nietzsche's philosophical explorations and passes by much of what is provocative and problematic in his thought. Berkowitz argues that Nietzsche's thought is rooted in extreme and conflicting opinions about metaphysics and human nature. Discovering a deep unity in Nietzsche's work by exploring the structure and argumentative movement of a wide range of his books, Berkowitz shows that Nietzsche is a moral and political philosopher in the Socratic sense whose governing question is, "What is the best life?"Nietzsche, Berkowitz argues, puts forward a severe and aristocratic ethics, an ethics of creativity, that demands that the few human beings who are capable acquire a fundamental understanding of and attain total mastery over the world. Following the path of Nietzsche's thought, Berkowitz shows that this mastery, which represents a suprapolitical form of rule and entails a radical denigration of political life, is, from Nietzsche's own perspective, neither desirable nor attainable.Out of the colorful and richly textured fabric of Nietzsche's books, Peter Berkowitz weaves an interpretation of Nietzsche's achievement that is at once respectful and skeptical, an interpretation that brings out the love of truth, the courage, and the yearning for the good that mark Nietzsche's magisterial effort to live an examined life by giving an account of the best life.

The Immoralist (Penguin Classics) de Andre Gide Résumés

"The humanist has four leading characteristics - curiosity, a free mind, belief in good taste, and a belief in the human race - and all four are present in Gide ... the humanist of our age." - E.M. ForsterIn The Immoralist, André Gide presents the confessional account of a man seeking the truth of his own nature. The story's protagonist, Michel, knows nothing about love when he marries the gentle Marceline out of duty to his father. On the couple's honeymoon to Tunisia, Michel becomes very ill, and during his recovery he meets a young Arab boy whose radiant health and beauty captivate him. An awakening for him both sexually and morally, Michel discovers a new freedom in seeking to live according to his own desires. But, as he also discovers, freedom can be a burden. A frank defense of homosexuality and a challenge to prevailing ethical concepts, The Immoralist is a literary landmark, marked by Gide's masterful, pure, simple style.For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

The Immoralist (Dover Thrift Editions) de André Gide Résumés

Among the masters of modern French literature, André Gide (1869–1951) concerned himself with the motivation and function of the will, with self-cultivation, and the conduct of the individual in the modern world. His perception, integrity, and purity of style brought him much acclaim, including the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1947.The Immoralist (written in 1901, published in 1902), one of his best-known works, deals with the unhappy consequences of amoral hedonism. Filled with similarities of Gide's own life, it is the story of Michel, who, during three years of travel in Europe and North Africa, tries to rise above good and evil and allow his passions (including his attraction to young Arab boys) free rein; in doing so, he neglects his wife, Marceline, who eventually dies of tuberculosis. The book is in the form of Michel's attempt to justify his conduct to his friends.Notable for its fusion of autobiographical elements with both biblical and classical clarity and lack of clutter, The Immoralist marks a decided shift in Gide's prose style and a somewhat decadent floweriness to his later classical clarity and lack of clutter. This nobility and simplicity of style is skillfully retained in this excellent new translation by Stanley Appelbaum, which also preserves the passion and intensity of the original.

Living with Nietzsche: What the Great "Immoralist" Has to Teach Us de Robert C. Solomon Résumés

Friedrich Nietzsche is one of the most popular and controversial philosophers of the last 150 years. Narcissistic, idiosyncratic, hyperbolic, irreverent--never has a philosopher been appropriated, deconstructed, and scrutinized by such a disparate array of groups, movements, and schools of thought. Adored by many for his passionate ideas and iconoclastic style, he is also vilified for his lack of rigor, apparent cruelty, and disdain for moral decency.In Living with Nietzsche, Solomon suggests that we read Nietzsche from a very different point of view, as a provocative writer who means to transform the way we view our lives. This means taking Nietzsche personally. Rather than focus on the "true" Nietzsche or trying to determine "what Nietzsche really meant" by his seemingly random and often contradictory pronouncements about "the Big Questions" of philosophy, Solomon reminds us that Nietzsche is not a philosopher of abstract ideas but rather of the dazzling personal insight, the provocative challenge, the incisive personal probe. He does not try to reveal the eternal verities but he does powerfully affect his readers, goading them to see themselves in new and different ways. It is Nietzsche's compelling invitation to self-scrutiny that fascinates us, engages us, and guides us to a "rich inner life." Ultimately, Solomon argues, Nietzsche is an example as well as a promulgator of "passionate inwardness," a life distinguished by its rich passions, exquisite taste, and a sense of personal elegance and excellence.
