Aspect of the Characters from The Counterfeiters of André Gide

Hülya Kol


Abstract: As a pastry chef, the writer André Gide kneads his dough differently with the intention of putting an end to imitation in the world of the novel. He has the courage to treat the subject of the novel on the contrary to his contemporaries. He succeeds by introducing the reader into the novel. The reader finds fantastic stories and interesting characters in The Counterfeiters. Themes such as the hypocrisy and falsity of these characters are a reflection of the title that evokes them. Gide transmits this problematic period to the reader with surprising skill. The contrast in the words and behaviors of people are the evil traces of war.
