Excerpt from Romain Roland and Jean-Christophe: With a Listof Books About Music by Rolland, Krehbiel, Henderson, Lavignac, Filson Young, and Others

Whether the curiosity about "people who have done things" hints of a weakness for gossip or indicates the capacity for hero worship which is said to be a characteristic of noble minds, it will find ample and delightful gratification in the biography of Romain Rolland.

It is most interesting to hear from Romain Rolland himself the genesis of a book that has stirred two continents. While he was in Rome, ten years before the first volume appeared, he conceived the idea of the whole book, planned the chapters, and entirely composed a great part of the volumes which are yet to be published. "... I was isolated, stifling like so many others in France in a world of moral enmity. I wished to breathe, I wished to react against an unhealthy civilization, against opinion corrupted by a false minority. I wished to say to this minority: 'You lie! you do not represent France.' For this I needed a hero with clear vision and a pure heart, whose soul was unsullied enough to give him the right to speak and whose voice was strong enough to make itself heard. I built this hero patiently. Before deciding to write the first line of my book I carried it within me for years; Christophe did not start on his journey until I had seen his road to the end ..."

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Romain Roland and Jean-Christophe: With a Listof Books About Music by Rolland, Krehbiel, Henderson, Lavignac, Filson Young, and Others The above and what follows is from the modest Introduction, Jean Bonnerot has pro vided for a little volume of extracts in French from Professor Rolland s works. In this he not only gives all sorts of interesting informa tion about Romain Rolland s life, but in apt quotations tells us more about the inspiration and the methods of Romain Rolland s work and the author s own attitude to it, than we could learn from volumes of anecdote or critical analysis. My state of mind, Romain Rolland writes to a friend, is always that Ofa musician, not of a painter. At first, I conceive like a nebulous musical impression the whole Of a work, then the principal motives, and, above all, the rhythm, not so much of isolated phrases as the sequence of the volumes in relation to the whole, the chapters in the volumes, and the paragraphs in the chapters.
