The Stuart Gilbert translation of 1937 Nobel laureate Martin du Gard’s early novel, Jean Barois.

A drama of ideas, it presents the old and ever-new story of a young man outgrowing his inherited beliefs and groping for new convictions. At the turn of the century, this revolt took the form of flight from the Church into the new faith offered by science; and this novel, in personal terms, conveys the ferment of a whole generation in France. The Dreyfus case, which was a rallying point for the avant-garde of the time, is an important episode. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for du Gard, Roger Martin

Author Image

Roger Martin du Gard (1881–1958) was a French novelist and winner of the 1937 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was born in Paris and worked as a paleographer (the study of ancient literature) and an archivist. In his work as a writer, he brought a spirit of objectivity and regard for detail, and because of his concern with documentation and the relationship of social reality to individual development, his fiction has been linked with the realist and naturalist traditions of the 19th century. His sympathy for the humanist socialism and pacifism of Jean Jaurès is evident in his work. he is best known for his multi-volume work, "The Thibaults", which chronicles the life of two brothers who are raised in a well to do family and their experiences during the First Word War.
