Περιγραφή:
Gide's powerful story of a young love blighted by religious dedication
Two cousins, Alissa and Jerome, grow up together and fall in love. Then Alissa begins to believe that Jerome's love for her is imperilling his soul. And thus, in the interests of Jerome's salvation, she sets out to suppress everything that is beautiful in herself-both in mind and body.
Strait is the Gate is a devastating exploration of the destructive force of spirituality allowed to grow to excess. Regarded by many as the most perfect piece of writing that Gide ever achieved, its simplicity, craftsmanship, limpidity of style and power to stimulate the mind and emotions combine to create a novel of genius.
