Malraux and the Image of Man

Frank, Joseph
August 1954
New Republic;8/30/54, Vol. 131 Issue 9, p18
The article presents information on the book "Les Noyers de l' Altenburg," by André Malraux. The book is a series of staccato scenes set in the period from the beginning of the century up to the First World War. The narrator, an Alsatian fighting with the French forces in 1940, is a prisoner in a great camp surrounding the cathedral of Chartres, part of an inert mass of humanity, slowly dissolving back to the primitive. The book is enriched by a note of poetry arising from historical images.
