This collection of reflective essays forms a 'spiritual autobiography' of Andre Gide, a key figure of French letters

Andre Gide, a literary and intellectual giant of 20th-century France, mines his memories and personal observations in this collection of essays. Gide's reflections and commentary masterfully showcase his delicate writing style and evocative sensibility, yielding new insights on writers such as Goethe and contemporaries Joseph Conrad, Nicolas Poussin, Arthur Rimbaud, and Paul-Marie Verlaine.
