Romain Rolland was an early twentieth century French novelist, dramatist and essayist. Throughout his life he was a fervent idealist, deeply involved with pacifism, the fight against fascism, the search for world peace and the analysis of artistic genius, which was a recurring theme of his works. In 1915 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature as “a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings”. This comprehensive eBook presents Rolland’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, rare translations appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
