Marcel Pagnol’s Childhood’s memory is a collection of 3 autobiographic novels inspired by the young Marcel’s holidays’ trips in Provence. It encompasses the most well-known works of the novelist.
The first work of Marcel Pagnol’s Childhood memory series is “My father’s glory”, published in 1957.
His father’s death was certainly the event that led him to turn back to his past life, trying to regain his youth and his father’s presence.
The second volume of the collection, “My mother’s castle”, was published the same year. Pursuing his childhood memories, there is the preponderant place of the mother. The novel revives the memory of those moments of complicity in his mother’s castle.
The last part of Marcel Pagnol’s Childhood memory, “Time of secrets” (1959), delivers a more intimate atmosphere, outside the family’s circle.
