Excerpt from The Fear of Living: La Peur De Vivre

This is the point of view adopted by M. Henry Bordeaux. There is more true realism in his book than in fifty chosen from among the works of the most famous Naturalists. The figures in it all live. The study of provincial manners is very finely developed in it. One chapter might seem a little exaggerated, if one did not feel that its truth is photographic. It is the one in which the Mayor, officially ordered to tell Madame Guibert of the death of her son who had been killed by the enemy, is afraid to compromise himself by crossing the threshold of people classed as reactionaries and sends a policeman in his place! Added to it all is a charming sympathy with nature. Both the people and their surroundings become our familiar friends in this modest home at Le Maupas, the peaceful setting of so many scenes of sorrow.

M. Henry Bordeaux was already honorably known to us through some stories written with a delicate touch, and some judicious critical essays.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 440 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from The Fear of Living: La Peur De VivreM. Henry Bordeauxs latest novel, The Fear of Living, appeared several months ago, at a season when the summer novel was flourishing. That season belongs to the big purveyors of commercial literature and is not the time at which to speak of a real writer. I have, therefore, purposely postponed until to-day my few words about this book, which both public and press have welcomed warmly, but without sufficiently marking its true place. It is one of the best novels that has appeared for a long time. It contrasts, by its vivid originality, with everything that the storytellers of to-day give us. It is a new and daring departure. It is that, primarily, through the philosophy of life which the author has expressed in it. The fear of living is a new and deep-seated evil among us. We value our peace above everything, we wish to keep it at all hazards, however dearly we must pay for it.
