Abstract

218 French Studies THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, SINCE 1945 PART II: 1974 By SHEILA M. BELL, Lecturer in French at the University of Kent at Canterbury I. GENERAL In a lively interview accorded to S. G. Quigley, EsC, 14:64-80, Ionesco is dimissive of his contemporaries: 'Pour connaitre la litterature du 2oeme siecle, it suffit de lire quatre auteurs: Kafka, Joyce, Faulkner et Proust. (. . .) Le reste n'est que periphrase.' The volume of material on our period suggests no small measure of disagreement. Post-1945 alternatives to Ionesco's big four would seem at present to be Beckett, Sartre, Camus and Butor (with Ionesco himself a close runner-up). The novel maintains its dominant position though individual poets are provoking work of high quality. The Cahiers industry appears to be taking breath this year. The Vian cult continues, distinguished more by volume than by quality. It is to it however that we owe a magnificently produced (first) ed. of his Manuel de Saint Germain des Pres, presented by Noel Arnaud, Eds du Cherie, 304 pp.; amusing text and splendid photographs. Of a different description altogether is the ambitious Maurice Crubellier, Histoire culturelle de la France XIXe-XX€ siecle (Coll. U), Colin, 454 pp.
