Abstract

French Studies 175 THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, 1900-45 By B. C. SWIFT, Senior Lecturer in French in the University of Stirling I. GENERAL In an active year, interest continues especially in the central authors, studies of the poetry and fiction of the period still overshadowing drama and non-fictional prose. Authors are treated according to a variety of crit. principles, with a special emphasis, in gen., on thematic and stylistic, rather than biog., approaches. Although there is some interest in relation- ships between lit. and belief or ideology, there is a widespread tendency to look for intrinsically lit. justifications and structural interpretations of creative work, and there have been some linguistic and statistical studies.

Grits often stress the continuing interest and con- temporaneity of the early loth c., not only in work on the main authors but also in studies of writers who are generally con- sidered to
