Romain Rolland , (born Jan. 29, 1866, Clamecy, France—died Dec. 30, 1944, Vézelay), French novelist, dramatist, and essayist, an idealist who was deeply involved with pacifism, the fight against fascism, the search for world peace, and the analysis of artistic genius. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915.

His passion for the heroic found expression in a series of biographies of geniuses: Vie de Beethoven (1903; Beethoven ), who was for Rolland the universal musician above all the others; Vie de Michel-Ange (1905; The Life of Michel Angelo ), and Vie de Tolstoi (1911; Tolstoy ), among others.

After a burlesque fantasy, Colas Breugnon (1919), Rolland published a second novel cycle, L’Âme-enchantée, 7 vol. (1922–33), in which he exposed the cruel effects of political sectarianism. In the 1920s he turned to Asia, especially India , seeking to interpret its mystical philosophy to the West in such works as Mahatma Gandhi (1924). Rolland’s vast correspondence with such figures as Albert Schweitzer , Albert Einstein , Bertrand Russell , and Rabindranath Tagore was published in the Cahiers Romain Rolland (1948). His posthumously published Mémoires (1956) and private journals bear witness to the exceptional integrity of a writer dominated by the love of mankind.

Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre ( / ˈ s ɑːr t r ə / ; [8] French:  [saʁtʁ] ; 21 June 1905 – 15 April 1980) was a French philosopher, playwright, novelist, political activist, biographer, and literary critic . He was one of the key figures in the philosophy of existentialism and phenomenology , and one of the leading figures in 20th-century French philosophy and Marxism .

His work has also influenced sociology , critical theory , post-colonial theory , and literary studies , and continues to influence these disciplines.

He was awarded the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature but refused it, saying that he always declined official honours and that "a writer should not allow himself to be turned into an institution". [10]
