About the Book

Pierre entered the subway head-first. A violent, contagious throng. He stood close to the entrance, squeezed against a group of people, sharing the heavy air that was coming in and out of their lips, and he peered without noticing them at the pitch-black, rumbling vaults above which the train's bright eyes flashed. A young man, just eighteen years old and yet almost a kid, had a deep dread filling his heart. Pierre admired Philip with the same passion that younger children frequently feel for older siblings or other strangers who are sometimes only glimpsed at for an hour before they are gone again.
A week later, he was lazing around in the golden-hued Luxembourg Gardens, which the sun had just finished illuminating. When he gazed down at the sandy path, he got the sense that a grin had just flown by like the wingtip of a dove. And at that very second, she continued walking while turning her head to look at him with a smile. They would close their eyes, draw closer together, and everything would end in one blow when the gulf was supposed to be there. The voice of the delivered soul could only be heard via music, which was the only form of art to do so.

About Author

Romain Rolland

As a "tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary creation and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has depicted diverse sorts of human beings," Romain Rolland received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915. He was a French dramatist, novelist, essayist, art historian, mystic, and mystic. He was influenced by Indian Vedanta philosophy, particularly by Swami Vivekananda's writings. He made a huge contribution to the democratization of theatre with his support for a "people's theatre." When he was 36 years old and writing his first book, it was released in 1902.One of the few French authors who still adhered to his pacifist internationalist principles was Romain Rolland. His book on Gandhi helped to establish the nonviolent Indian leader's fame in 1924, and the two men eventually met. He and Edmund Bordeaux Szekely created the International Biogenic Society in 1928 to further the fusion of the intellect, body, and spirit. He was one of the founding members of the Willi Münzenberg-founded World Committee Against War and Fascism. He completed his memoirs and put the final touches on his musical study of Ludwig van Beethoven's life during the Nazi occupation of France in 1940. On December 30, 1944, he passed away at Vézelay.
