An ingenious metaphor provides the framework for this penetrating study of André Gide. To explore Gides labyrinth of values, Ben Stoltzfus uses the Prometheus legend as a point of departure, and with discerning erudition develops the thread that runs throughout Gides writings. Each book, from Les Cahiers dAndré Walter (1891) to Thésée (1946), along with his voluminous Journal, is seen as revealing a moral and aesthetic effort to draw away from bondage or self-deception, from spiritual blindness, and from submission to authority. .
