The Thibault Family is a full-length novel by Roger Martin du Gard (1881-1958), a French author and Nobel laureate in literature. On the one hand, this novel examines the events in Europe in the early years of the twentieth century and the years of World War I, and on the other hand, it describes the events of the wealthy and educated French family, namely the Thibault family. The youngest child of this family, Jacques Thibault, with his rebellious and indomitable spirit, seeks his destiny in the world around him and leaves the family. In interacting with his socialist ideas, he contrasts happiness and an ideal life with someone he loves.—Goodreads.com. [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.
