The Revolt of the Angels by Anatole France

Anatole France
The Revolt of the Angels 




Mutual antagonism between God and his angels is emphasized, which leads to disgruntlement and ultimately rebellion by the latter.

A clever and mischievous take on the theology of modern society, The Revolt of the Angels follows the path of Arcade, a lowly guardian angel, as he happens upon the ugly truths of his divine master in the library of his human charge.

The Revolt of the Angels retells the classic Christian story of the war in heaven between angels led by the Archangel Michael against others led by Satan. The war ends with defeat and casting to the earth of the latter. The plot emphasizes themes of protagonists fighting a ruling hierarchy, and attempting to escape it, as well as "hiddenness, delusion, revolution, and epiphany...a literary exploration of existential choices in an apocalyptic context".It is written, says René Boylesve.
