Nobel Prize–winning writer André Gide marks his voyage toward self-discovery in this imaginative allegorical work   When Urien and his sailing companions begin their voyage, it is to places unknown and, perhaps, only dreamed. This allegorical masterpiece from André Gide, a key figure of French letters, deftly illustrates the techniques and doctrine of the Symbolist movement—and the dual nature of Gide's own psyche.
