    ANDRÉ GIDE'S POLITICS: REBELLION AND AMBIVALENCE
    Edited by Tom Conner

    At the peak of his career, after having established himself as an accomplished writer, astute moraliste, and the foremost spokesperson of his generation for personal freedom and self -realization, Gide became aware, first, that his particular brand of bourgeois individualism was becoming increasing[y irrelevant in the contemporary world and, second, that social commitment and even revolution could serve as a powerful source of inspiration and self-renewal. Over a ten-year period that began in the 1920s and ended with his public break with the Soviet Union in 1936, Gide the committed intellectual interacted with society in ways that were for him unprecedented. These essays examine the outcomes of Gide's evolving commitment to a host of controversial issues ranging from the sexual to the political, from the literary to the social.

    LE DÉSIR À L'OEUVRE
    André Gide à Cambridge 1918, 1998

    Édité par Naomi Segal
    de l'Université de Reading, R-U

    sera publié printemps 2001 par Éditiolis Rodopil

    Pendant l'été 1918, André Gide passa trois mois à Cambridge en compagnie de son jeune amant Marc Allégret. Ce séjour fut l'occasion de sa rencontre avec maints intellectuels anglais mais aussi la cause de la grande crise de son mariage, qui conduisit sa femme Madeleine à brûler toutes les lettres qu'il lul' avait écrites depuis laur jeunesse. La complexité du désir chez Gide, son attitude envers les femmes et le fén-n'nm' et envers la pédérastie et la pedagogie, son besoin inlassable des départs et des retours, l'exploitation du vécu dans ses oeuvres romanesques et la création de soi dans ses écrits nonfictionnels : voilá quelques-unes des matières qui sont développées dans ce livre.
