André Gide

Andre Gide was born in Paris, France on November 22, 1869. He was a Nobel Prize awardee who made contributions to the symbolist movement through his literary works. Gide’s passion for writing became his stepping stone in showing his revolt against the restraints of showing one’s identity and sexual preferences. With cultural indifferences and gender discriminations, Gide’s life was a constant struggle between obtaining his freedom to enjoy physical desires and pulling it off due to society’s dictate on virtue and spiritual restraints.
