Summary of Jacques the Fatalist and His Master Summary of Jacques the Fatalist and His Master Reviews for Jacques the Fatalist and His Master An Excerpt from Jacques the Fatalist and His Master
In this revolutionary novel, a leading figure of the Enlightenment celebrates the unpredictable nature of man and the world as he considers the behavior of the moral being and the philosophical dilemma of free will and determinism.
'#A# feast of intelligence, humour and fantasy . . . Without Jacques le Fataliste the history of the novel remains obscure and incomplete . . . its true greatness is only perceptible when it is placed beside Don Quixote, Tom Jones or Ulysses' – Milan Kundera
