Roger Martin du Gard and Maumort: The Nobel Laureate and His Unfinished Creation

Benjamin Franklin Martin


In the late 1930s and early 1940s, Roger Martin du Gard was one of the most famous writers in the Western world. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1937, and his works, especially Les Thibault, a multivolume novel, were translated into English and read widely. Today, this close friend of André Gide, Albert Camus, and André Malraux is almost unknown, largely because he left unfinished the long project he began in the 1940s, Lieutenant-Colonel de Maumort. This book creates a blend of intellectual history, family drama, and biography.

Keywords: Roger Martin du Gard, Nobel Prize for Literature, Les Thibault, Lieutenant-Colonel de Maumort, novel writer
