Andre Malraux (1901-1976) was a captivating figure of French history due to his involvement in the chief issues of his time and the ideas he expressed through his writings. Almost all of his books were set in the context of a revolution or a war and reflected the dramatic times in which he lived. In his novels, Malraux embraced an idealism based upon individual action, solidarity, and resistance. These important themes formed the foundation of Malraux' world view, namely that great individuals direct societies and history to their greatest ends.
