Translated from the French by Gilbert Cannan. Romain Rolland (1866-1944) began writing this novel in 1889 as he became disenchanted with the world he saw around him.

It was translated into English by Gilbert Cannan. The first four volumes are sometimes grouped as Jean-Christophe, the next three as Jean-Christophe à Paris, and the last three as La fin du voyage ("Journey's End").
