Pagnol is equally famous for his four volume "Souvenirs D'Enfance" (Memories of Childhood) with the first two volumes, "La Glorie de mon pere" (The Glory of my Father) and "Le Chateau de ma mere" (My mother's castle) being the most renowned. The books are set in the pre-World War I period of the Third Republic, when school teachers were a particular instrument of state policy in its fight against clericalism. Pagnol's father was such a school teacher in Marsaille, and during the summer they would retire to the Provencal countryside, the true setting of the stories. Pagnol only conceived of this writing project in the `50's, so there is the intervening 50 years of the softening and romanticizing that can occur.
"Le Temps des Amours," (The Time of Loves) is the fourth volume in this series, written around 1960. Although Pagnol lived until 1974, this volume was not published until 1988. It is considered to be incomplete, or, at least, not "polished," like the earlier volumes.Read more ›
