Judge Not, Paperback / softback Book

Description

Andr\u00e9 Gide's lifelong fascination with the conventions of society led naturally to a strong interest in France's judicial system.

At the age of sixty Gide published Judge Not, a collection of writings detailing his experiences with the law as well as his thoughts on truth, justice, and judgment.

Gide writes about his experience as a juror in several trials, including that of an arsonist, and he analyzes two famous crimes of his day: Marcel Redureau, a docile fifteen-year-old vineyard laborer who violently murdered his employer's family, and the respected Monnier family's confinement of their daughter, Blanche.
