Le roman de la conscience malheureuse : Svevo, Gorki, Proust, Mann, Musil, Martin du Gard, Broch, Roth, Aragon

0.00 CHF tax incl.

In this crucial study, now available in paperback, nine great novelists of pre-War Europe (three French, four German or "Austro-Hungarian", one Russian and one Italian, or rather Austro-Hungarian-Italian) are examined under the unifying point of view of Hegel's "unhappy self-conscience". Why so unhappy and un-self-coinciding? The time of great exploits in history is past, the position of the intellectual is hard to define and hard to live, Hegel's citizenship can no longer be endorsed, mysticism has to do without God, and the subject with its unfathomable depths is the bottom of everything. How can the crisis be overcome? To some extent, the 1914 war could offer a solution.

Nine novels from different European countries yet all alike in theme ; all trent of nostalgia, despair and doubt about the significance of man, the world and history. Philippe Chardin groups these novels under the heading of "roman de la conscience malheureuse".
