Summary (From the publisher):

A deeply personal first-person narrative, Theseus is a characteristically self-reflexive and searching fictional memoir, and one of the final works by a lifelong immoralist, André Gide.

Theseus, mythical hero of Athens, narrates his life story in an existential vacuum following the failure of his marriages, the death of his son, Hippolytus, his own famous exploits a distant memory. Tragedy punctuates this narrative, as it does his drama, Oedipus, also published here, both works elaborating through myth an unanswerable search for self.
