Abstract

Les Thibault can be considered a study of human nature delving into basic concerns of society, religion and philosophy. The novel is an epic document of the era of World War I due to the nature of both its structure and its style of writing. The author has thoroughly documented this historical period with the object of delineating the causes of the war as well as describing the nature of the confrontation of the war to the characters. The characters themselves are shown in the light of their reactions to history.
