Synopsis

This volume contains the 10 books of the JEAN-CHRISTOPHE SAGA, A MASTERPIECE by French writer and dramatist Romain Rolland, a novelist, essayist, art historian and mystic who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915 "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". A friend of Freud, admired by all, he was once described as "the moral consciousness of Europe" during the years of turmoil and War in Europe.

The central character of this saga is Jean-Christophe Krafft, a German musician of Belgian extraction, a composer of genius whose life is depicted from cradle to grave. He undergoes great hardships and spiritual struggles, balancing his pride in his own talents with the necessity of earning a living and taking care of those around him. Tormented by injustices against his friends, forced to flee on several occasions as a result of his brushes with authority and his own conscience, he finally finds peace in a remote corner of Switzerland before returning in triumph to Paris a decade later.
