But Anatole France shows us that they are in the highest state of happiness - as long as they maintain the central belief that moves them toward penance. I read this novel after seeing the opera by Jules Massenet to see how closely the opera followed the novel. It's quite closely, for anyone who is wondering.

Anatole France was the pen name of Jacques Anatole Francois Thibault, who was born in Paris in 1844. The son of a bookseller, Thibault had a lifelong interest in literature. This new awareness was reflected in his writing, particularly in books such as Penguin Island, which criticized contemporary French society, and The Revolt of the Angels, which parodied the Catholic Church. He also became the literary advisor to l'Humanitie, an influential socialist newspaper, and frequently contributed articles to it until, dissatisfied with the Communist party that had eventually evolved, he renounced all political ties to the left just before his death in 1924.

I enjoyed this book very much. It's wonderful to have also seen and heard the opera. The book is much more detailed and the story is a timeless one about faith, sin, the nature of the sinner, set in the early days of Christianity. I will definitely look into more of this author's work.

I got this book to be ready for the next season in Metropolitan Opera, 2017-2018. 'Tais' is one of the operas in this season. Reading is interesting, and very rewarding. Love this book.

Querlaca
Could be the best book I will ever read in my life. It is brilliant. A must-read. That's it. By the way- hard to purchase (not always available), so get it when you can.

Meztihn
Very well written. Gives insight about certain motives religious fanatics hide or try to disguise.

Stan
Anachoritism, cynicism, Arianism and all kind of ancient philosophy put in the blender with drops of romance and endoscopic delirium... Just splendid!

Exellent
The most beautiful, spiritual, enlighten, incredible, happy, sad and wonderful story I have ever read in my life.
It will be one of my all-time favorite books from now on :)

Thank you Anatole France!

This relatively short book by Anatole France, which was later the basis of an opera by Massenet, ridicules religious hypocrisy in particular and religion in general. It is the mythical story, set in the 4th century A.D., of a supposed ascetic who attempts to convert, and then wins over, his country's most renowned courtesan, only to reveal late in the book that he has secretly been lusting for her. A fairly common literary scheme, done here with considerable wit.

I got this illustrated edition from my local library. I suppose that's where you'll have to find it if you don't order this copy from Amazon, because it's out of print.
