Gide, André (1869–1951), French writer. His relentless examination of his own standards and assumptions and the resulting inner conflicts made him one of the foremost figures in French literature in the first half of the 20th century. In 1947 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. Among his best-known works are the novels The Immoralist (1902) and The Counterfeiters (1926), and 4 volumes of Journals (1889–1949).
