  1. Awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1921 in recognition of his brilliant literary achievements, characterized as they are by a nobility of style, a profound human sympathy, grace, and a true Gallic temperament Anatole France began his career as a poet and a journalist In 1869, Le Parnasse Contemporain published one of his poems, La Part de Madeleine In 1875, he sat on the committee which was in charge of the third Parnasse Contemporain compilation He moved Paul Verlaine and Mallarm aside of this Parnasse As a journalist, from 1867, he wrote a lot of articles and notices He became famous with the novel Le Crime de Sylvestre Bonnard 1881 Its protagonist, skeptical old scholar Sylvester Bonnard, embodied France s own personality The novel was praised for its elegant prose and won him a prize from the French Academy In La Rotisserie de la Reine Pedauque 1893 Anatole France ridiculed belief in the occult and in Les Opinions de Jerome Coignard 1893 , France captured the atmosphere of the fin de si cle.He was elected to the Acad mie fran aise in 1896.France took an important part in the Dreyfus Affair He signed Emile Zola s manifesto supporting Dreyfus, a Jewish army officer who had been falsely convicted of espionage France wrote about the affair in his 1901 novel Monsieur Bergeret.France s later works include L le des Pingouins 1908 which satirizes human nature by depicting the transformation of penguins into humans after the animals have been baptized in error by the nearsighted Abbot Mael La Revolte des Anges 1914 is often considered France s most profound novel It tells the story of Arcade, the guardian angel of Maurice d Esparvieu Arcade falls in love, joins the revolutionary movement of angels, and towards the end realizes that the overthrow of God is meaningless unless in ourselves and in ourselves alone we attack and destroy Ialdabaoth He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1921 He died in 1924 and is buried in the Neuilly sur Seine community cemetery near Paris.In 1922, France s entire works were put on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum Prohibited Books Index of the Roman Catholic Church 2 This Index was abolished in 1966.

  2. Raining Angels in Paris and WashingtonCan there be such a genre, biblical material excepted, as the anticipatory allegory If so, Revolt of the Angels could well be a prime example.In this week s NYRB Nov 6 2017 , Charles Simic has a piece commemorating Trump s election In it he puts Trump in a literary context The only character I can think of in the world literature who resembles Donald Trump is P re Ubu in the play Ubu Roi Ubu the King by Alfred Jarry that famously opened and closed in Paris o [...]

  3. I read this book as part of my Nobel Prize for Literature Awardees reading list As it turned out it is one the longest list I will ever try to finish Sometimes I too wonder where I found the audacity to attempt to foray in this kind of reading list The Revolt of the Angels is my initial foray into Anatole France s works, which definitely is not my last one It was not his first, as France was apparently a poet and a journalist too, but is considered to be his most profound novel I was a sucker fo [...]

  4. This is a book that could only have been written in France And poor Anatole France got on the Catholic Church s Index of Forbidden Books for his efforts The Revolt of the Angels is not really a work of irreligion as it is of gentle irony.It all starts when Arcade, the guardian angel of Maurice d Esparvieu, starts reading books in the famed d Esparvieu library and decides that the God whom he served was actually a demiurge named Ialdabaoth He enlists other angels who are living among men to join [...]

  7. This book was a bit slow for me But, didn t allow it to discourage and me kept on At the end honestly can say was a fantastic read.

  8. It s becoming obvious that many of my bk reviews are actually just excuses for anecdotes w just a little bk review thrown in here there That s the case here I ve been writing a math humor bk called Paradigm Shift Knuckle Sandwich other examples of PNT Perverse Number Theory in fact, it s or less finished now I m just working on the Glossary the Index Part of this bk entails my navigating thru my notes about math bks that I read between, roughly, 2003 2005 In one of them, I ran across mention of [...]

  9. A clever and mischievous take on the theology of modern society, The Revolt of the Angels follows the path of Arcade, a lowly guardian angel, as he happens upon the ugly truths of his divine master in the library of his human charge Anatole France takes what could be a very dry polemic against the slavery of religion and makes it into a charming romp with his gifts for characterization and story telling As Maurice, the young man abandoned by Arcade, struggles to get his guardian back, we are sho [...]

  10. I loved this book I found it at a Half Price Books and it just seemed to call out to me It s classified as a satire, but I think that is because atheism isn t something that could be talked about back in the day when this book was first published The main story is much like the title A band of Angels wants to revolt against God and heaven These fallen angels don t think that God is good, or that he is all powerful as he claims to be They are educated, having read many philosophical books, and so [...]

  11. This is a manifesto for an individual inner self revolution.Satan has access to d Esparvieu family library,one of the vastest libraries in the world.It s librarian prefers the books to remain on the shelves untouched, lest they may be damaged But this is not for Satan he is invisible, so has access to the library and is reading them ferociously I have learnt.I have thought.I have lost my faith He tells of the progress his mind had made towards knowledge and liberty, of his philosophical reading, [...]

  12. This is a novel about a coup attempt in the heavenly firmament The angels, frustrated in the politics of God, descend upon Earth to prepare the overthrow of their master.In General, the author is ridiculing the events of 1812 in France The problem is that if you re not aware of the historical events of the time, it is unlikely to be able to capture the essence of satire, presented by Anatole France this work.If the Island penguins , the author ridicules the history of France, and we, as readers, [...]

  14. This book offers a heartening plot idea the overthrow of god by revolting angels who have discovered the true origin and function of the universe through science Ordinarily such a story would provide plenty of good reading and feeling which any intellectual critique of religion can offer to anyone with an open mind My low rating for the book is not because of the plot but because I just was not captivated by the writing Maybe it was the translation It would be great if a new author would write t [...]

  15. I think it s a must read black humour political comedy A smart and unconventional comedy with a deep dive analysis in politics, religion and human nature The plot was brilliant and imaginative, while the characters are i believe intentionally unrealistic and shallow which makes an excellent contrast with the seriousness of the situation and the events that take place and, of course, makes the book hilariously ironic.

  16. Que puedo decir, una obra maestra que nos muestra la otra cara de lo que consideramos bueno y benevolente, al terminarlo de leer este libro agreg a mi vida otra perspectiva de las cosas, haci ndome reflexionar y cuestionarme.Adem s cabe agregar que hay rus de que Beethoven compuso la sinfon a numero 7, en particular el 2do movimiento cuando termino de leer este libr.

  17. I read Revolt of the Angels again for Bibliogoth, practically in one sitting I really enjoyed it Revolutionaries disguised as angels and politics disguised as religion It has old libraries full of books, love affairs, and bombs It s a book that hardly anyone has ever heard of but if you can find a copy it s well worth a read.

  18. Lleno de s tiras, de sabidur a y de reflexiones, este libro es una obra maestra que merece ser le da, nos entrega una visi n peculiar, pero no desacertada, de como se desenvuelven las tramas alrededor de la lucha entre los ngeles y los demonios.

  19. Classicamente francese, ammiccante a Dumas e Hugo, irrestibilmente umoristico, divinamente sulfureo, eppure profondo nella sua perspicace analisi del bene e del male e dei rispettivi rapporti.Ma come ho potuto trascurare sin ora Anatole France

  20. Phenomenal read and apparently a national treasure in France The French speaking world is so much literate than the trite English speaking world Has that thing People looking for a certain type of literature know what that thing is.

  21. One of my favorite books It turns the world of religion upside down It was part of the inspiration for my novel RAPTUROUS.

  22. If the angels spoke what would they have to say about religion In the case of Anatole France s talking angels, whether they are fallen angels or heavenly angels they reveal a great deal about faith, religion, and God s plan for our lives France plays the devil s advocate in this cynical story that reminds me of The Screwtape Letters, by C S Lewis The big difference is that C S Lewis was a Christian believer, and his book very well gave you the ability to compare and contrast belief with practice [...]

  23. la historia de una familia noble francesa, lustre iniciado por Alejandro Bussart D Espavieu, hombre de asuntos pol ticos y cuantiosa fortuna seg n el texto, iniciador de la estirpe.Alejandro D Espavieu confiaba en las virtudes de los libros y cre una biblioteca de trescientos sesenta mil vol menes, dejando como misi n familiar que cada vez que hubiese una publicaci n que indicara alguna importancia ya fuera en ciencias naturales, sociales, morales, pol ticas, religiosas y filos ficas, la parente [...]

  24. 2nd readingI still loved it, though the opening was even slower than I remembered I didn t re read my earlier review before re reading the book those first 36 pages do draaaaaaag I skimmed over a lot of the chapters with only human characters, because the angel chapters are where the important action is I love this book for meshing together biblical imagery and modern political discourse in the story of the growing angelic revolution I didn t care much for the human only subplots.1st readingShor [...]

  25. It s not often you come about a well written, easily read, funny and clever book, which also happens to carry a significant message If you re a hardcore Christian, this probably isn t for you, but to others this book was a joy to read Vivid characters too, thought there isn t necessarily a lot of in depth details on most of them, France still made them very present and lively.
