RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 40646922 LA English T1 Romain Rolland A1 Francis, R. A., PB Berg PP Oxford YR 1999 SN 1859732704 9781859732700 AB "Romain Rolland's life coincided closely with the span of the French Third Republic, an age of which he was an acute and critical observer. He is remembered for his plays on the French Revolution, his work on Beethoven, his novels, his biographies, his opposition to the First World War, his desperate attempts between the wars to reconcile Gandhism and Leninism and, during the Occupation, his nostalgia for the Catholic faith of his forebears."--BOOK JACKET. "Drawing on the wealth of the unpublished Archives Romain Rolland, this book offers a fresh perspective on the events of an often turbulent life and traces the changing patterns of his thought. This study attempts to do justice to every side of Romain Rolland's output, showing how each of his works in their diverse genres contributes to the overall thrust of his developing thought."--Jacket.
