The Counterfeiters is a book about writing a book also called The Counterfeiters That Is The Counterfeiters That is the theme of the novel which comes from the title of the book by the writer Edouard Thus The Counterfeiters is a novel within a novel with Edouard the alter ego of Gide writing a book of the same title Other stylistic devices are also used such as an omniscient narrator that sometimes addresses the reader directly weighs in on the characters motivations or discusses alternate realities However there is also the story of a group of boys who are passing counterfeit coins throughout Paris Thus we have entered a world where we cannot trust our senses what is counterfeit and what is real The story of Edouard writing his novel demonstrates his search for knowledge yet as he associates with a group of his own adolescent relatives it appears as an artificial arrangement one his own adolescent relatives it appears as an artificial arrangement one displays

The Effects Upon Society 
effects upon society youth s corruption of traditional standards and values The collapse of morality is illustrated with Eduoard s nephew Vincent who deserts his over Laura a married woman and runs away with Lillian the mistress of Count Robert de Passavant His Saint Seiya Episode G medio tomo life goes downhill as he murders her and goes insane There is also the coming of age story of Bernard and Olivier as they prepare toeave school but does this extend beyond their education and emanate from all who are Scarf Style 2 learning about the world Thisearning which is reuired by the changing nature of the everyday the uotidian reality that is perhaps counterfeitI found the details of Edouard s struggles with his career his family his friendships and ove provide images that enhance the main themes yet also provide narrative drive Another subplot of the novel is homosexuality Some of the characters are overtly homosexual ike the adolescent Olivier and the adult writers Count de Passavant and Eduoard The Count seems to be an evil and corrupting force while the Abraham A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths latter is benevolent Even when the treatment is not overt there is a homoerotic subtext that runs throughout which encompasses Olivier s friend Bernard and their schoolfellows Gontran and Philippe The main theme of The Counterfeiters underlies the issue of sexuality morality and social order andineage in a uniue way for his era Gide s novel was not received well on its appearance perhaps because of its homosexual themes and its unusual composition It is this unusual composition that I thought made it an interesting read along with which the way Gide demonstrates ideas through his characters and their actions much Deceived like Dostoevsky and Thomas Mann The Counterfeiters has improved its reputation in the intervening years and is now generally counted among the great novels of the twentieth century The reputation of the Faux Monnayeurs is that it is an experimental novel that succeeds only where it is conventional Gide s experimentation comes in the form of a magically real angel multiple narrative points of view combined with subplots and characters than would normally be considered prudent in a well controlled workAt 19 Iiked it because the author maintained a rapid pace and clearly had great affection for his characters As well the discussion on homosexuality was new to me Because Gide obviously knew the topic very well I felt that the Faux Monnayeurs delivered great insightI was stunned when an angel appeared in the novel to wrestle with Bernard as if he were Jacob I was then very glad to see that Bernard was subseuently able to make peace with his adopted fatherThe novel however ends on a very cruel note as a bullied child commits suicide in front of his classmates I had frankly hoped that the Angel could have saved the Sparkletastic the Impatient Beader Presents 50 Dazzling Jewelry and Fashion Projects for the Discriminating Diva little boy and still regret that he did notThis is a great novel about the soul searching of adolescent males during theirate teens I recommend it well before Catcher in the Rye A novel as much about writing as it is about coded homosexuality in 1920 s France a time Spongebob Detectivepants The Case of the Missing Spatula with Sticker Nick Spongebob Suarepants Simon Spotlight lest we forget that Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas just about ruled that town Two rival writers Edouard and Robert fall for the same impressionable young boy Olivier who decides to run off with Robert the famous andess honorable of the two Edouard a kind of stand in for Gide is Olivier s uncle through marriage and in the Ready for Laughs A Treasury of Undersea Humor Spongebob Suarepants loss of his beloved nephew opts instead of his schoolfriend Bernard The intersections that follow among writing instruction publishing entry into adulthood and sexuality are noteworthy but not tooAlso noteworthy is the form of this novel It reads preciselyike something out of Austen Many of the novels are structured around the meeting of two characters Even the titles indicate such Bernard and Olivier Vincent Meets Passavant at Lady Griffith s Bernard Meets Olivier etc The novel has that 19th century breadth of including everyone from the aristocracy to the poor girl pregnant out of wedlock And this in 1925 The Great Gatsby came out in 1925I can t uite figure it out There s a strong anti decadent bent in this novel Robert the comte who drags Olivier to the dark side is painted as a kind of Wildean figure which is interesting given the friendship shared between Wilde and Gide It s only when Olivier realizes he needs to abandon Robert and side himself with a modernistic writer ike his uncle that he is safe Perhaps Gide s trying to resurrect an approach to the novel the decadents tried to do away with I mean the novel ends with. “Romance de um romance ue se escreve” como diria o protagonista Com estilo notoriamente refinado e inovações ue marcaram época Gide prescinde da cronologia e estrutura narrat. Les Faux monnayeurs

Summary Les Faux monnayeurs

Ters Many of the others were recognizable by name only Looking at this diagram should have made the story easier to read but it didn t and that s purely because Gide made a much too tangled mess of a novel Honestly and I hate admitting this it got so bad that I began to skim pages and skip entire passages I just didn t enjoy anything about this storyTo Gide s credit however this novel was definitely groundbreaking For me the way it shattered the confines of story and sexuality were the only redeeming ualities I m glad he wrote it if for no other reason than it changed the andscape of the modern novel but I have no desire to read this novel ever again I finally finished it and am now going to read the journal the author kept while writing this I mean it s a very Count the Monkeys long story about writing stories with aot of characters and sometimes it feels that the Crash line between what the character s are thinking and the what the author is thinking and what the author is thinking of the actual real novel is thin Supposedly heet the story flow naturally and yet I have a hard time imagining that he could have done so because there are so many The Daily Reader little things that needed to happen to get to the end result Maybe I can t fathom it because when I write I need to pre plan most every important thingIt s a heavy read and still the writing style drags your eyes along the pages with force You want to go forward and get closer to the characters perhaps because they re so beautifully painted Maybe I will edit thisater and make a clearer review when I will have studied the book in depth but I don t think there is a much deeper meaning I am not sure that this is a book with a message per say It s got a soft feel to it Overall I do recommend it a ot I think although and the characters employ this very expression in the book to talk about one of the writer s book do you follow me there because I think I ose myself in the bookception it s just a slice of Beaded Jewelry With Found Objects Incorporate Anything from Buttons to Shells life This is subtle metafiction since one of the main characters is a writer and the nature of Gide s The Counterfeiters is intellectual bohemian philosophical and of its time for example Freudian techniues used on a boy are exposited upon and discussed It follows various people of a social milieu from schoolboys to new schooleavers to their parents and relatives to an old schoolmaster and is about their relationships and connections in that sense it was soap The Government Inspector like It is also very homoerotic never directly stated but some of the male main characters are almost certainly gay It wasn t the easiest of books to follow but it was good in an interesting way The denouement cannot spoil however I did notike much because it felt a bit obvious and heavy handed to me and it rang hollow so that was a shameEdit I suppose the counterfeit coins used in the novel that the title references represent the hollow and somewhat flashy or surface Nature And Currency Of Many and currency of many these relationships people have with each other I will say that I did find the novel a bit depressing but almost scientifically honest that way because it kind of mirrors what I see and experience about people I m sure that says about me though Again I think this is an interesting and philosophical novel it wove subtly complex webs across my mind Ah God bless the French I wonder if it s the first time anyone has ever written thatI happen to The Sock love French writers and thusly prejudiced found this book by Andre Gide to be exceptional A fascinating novel of interlocking characters and their crisscrossing storyines that is widely considered a precursor of the nouveau romanRelationships of every variety are explored straight homosexual parentchild bastardy extra martial you name it a counterfeit coin subplot symbolic of the real self vs the false and a fairly chilling suicide by peer pressure angle nearly a century before the infamous suicide by MySpace hoaxIf you can handle the French give it a T2 Infiltrator look This book I couldn t figure out The feeling I get after reading it was similar to the time I read American Psycho On the surface you wonder what s going on when is this going to get interesting And you mighteave disappointed There s something subliminal about the Counterfeiters that is beyond my intelligence to figure out The characters are meshed together in one book which seem to act as a pressure cooker Gide instead of Wire Art Jewelry Workshop letting the plot twists and turnset the story flow as the characters The Reckoning lead them to following their respective personalities and conflicts Edouard s journal s his efforts with HIS own version of the Counterfeiters how much of that reflects the novel Which begs the uestion how mcuh of it reflects Gide sife at east in the time of writingThe form of the novel is uniue depending on which version you pick up It s probably better to pick up the one with Gide s own journals and also the appendix One of the story is about writing about writing So it follows with Gide s journals the book is about writing about writing about writing among its many themes Gide Gide s journals the book is about writing about writing about writing among its many themes Gide to fit as much as he knew in one book That Gide to fit as much as he knew in one book That itself should be respected It does tend to get messy at times due to Gide s ambitions but you should just press onThe English version translation I got out from my ibrary the only one by Bussy wasn t great But I m not sure what other translations are The Day the Crayons Came Home like If you could read French though that may be the best asset for reading this book. O Os moedeiros falsos não são para Gide apenas os jovens ue escoam dinheiro fraudulento mas os falsários no espírito e naetra todos os ue vivem na mentira de sentimentos falso. ,

Edouard the alter ego of Gide intending to write a book of the same title Other stylistic devices are also used such as an omniscient narrator who sometimes addresses the reader directly weighs in on

intellectuals or earners It s an odd book with crisscrossing themes and story The Continent lines Difficult to follow I gave up trying to follow it Gide a winner of the Nobel prize foriterature is an old time writer the emphasis being on writer rather than novelist In those days there weren t that many writers around and writers often were able to put whatever they wanted in their booksAnd Gide put a The Promise lot in this book It s just not much of a story Ostensibly it s about a young artist s search for artistic authenticity But that search gets twisted in a hundred different directions ending up only as strands heading in a general direction And yet in the process much insightful information about art and the artistic process is provided And information aboutife Consider these gemsIt very often suffices to add together a uantity of Mr Midshipman Hornblower little facts which taken separately are very simple and very natural to arrive at a sum which is monstrousthe greatest intelligence is precisely the one that suffers most from its ownimitationsLike a Renaissance man Gide s thoughts are My Only Vice learned and broad ranging and yet clearly the book s predominant emphasis is on art specifically writing Even in this edition anyway at the end there is Gide s notebook on his process of how he wrote the novel And it s good information Like be guided by the words rather than force them into submissionSo read this novel for entertainment I would say not really Read it to read a brilliant man andearn from him You re getting warmer Read it to Polis polis potatismos learn about art and writing You re hot nowHave aittle spare time I ve free flash fiction all stories under 1K at my website greggbellnet Steinbeck made me do itYears ago while working on my thesis for my master s degree I The Little Mermaid Little Golden Storybook learned everything there was to know about East of Eden One bit of information Iearned was the books that had influenced Steinbeck particularly in his writing of EoE There were titles I d heard of Moby Dick and Don uixote And there was this The Counterfeiters Because I Lignin Biodegradation Microbiology Chemistry and Applications loved all things East of Eden I made it a point to read these influential booksNow that I ve read The Counterfeiters I see how it influenced Steinbeck The Counterfeiters is an intelligent and imaginative novel And it is perhaps the earliest example of post modernist metafiction I ve encountered Here is a novel called The Counterfeiters a novel which includes a character who is an author writing a book named The Counterfeiters And as the character in the novel shapes the story so changes the story in the reader s hands Lovely I thoroughly enjoy worksike this Steinbeck s original draft of East of Eden featured some similar metafictional elements but many of these were toned down at the insistence of Steinbeck s editor and publisherAlso groundbreaking was Gide s approach to sexuality The majority of the characters in the novel are either gay or bisexual Their relationships are presented realistically in both positive and negative The Development of Ethnic Identity and Attitudes light justike you d expect from any heterosexual relationship Published in 1925 this display of authentic non sensationalized homosexual relationships was surely an original takeSo The Counterfeiters was definitely a groundbreaking novel but oh is it void of anything enjoyable It s intelligent and creative but there s not much of a story It is art for the sake of art And it s so incredibly hard to follow The Counterfeiters has a cast of characters that rivals War and Peace the difference is that The Counterfeiters introduces these character in a third of the space Tolstoy allowed for his characters to develop Another big difference War and Peace was vastly interestingWhile trying #to follow this novel i stumbled upon the #follow this novel I stumbled upon the graphic I think it nicely illustrates one of the problems I had with The Counterfeiters graphic by Morn the GornWhat you see here is the cast of characters and their convoluted relationships It s not unlike a graphic you might find for War and Peace Halfway through this novel though I couldn t honestly tell you than one or two details about no than two or three of these charac.
