ABSTRACT
The article presents information about some famous French novelists. World War II and its climate of tragedy and anguish threw a number of writers among the uninfluentials. Among the writers who have had a public since 1930, some are intensely alive today. These include Andre Malraux and Julien Green. The younger generation, including the writers between twenty and forty-five, can only be judged on its promise and a limited achievement, for the war years and the economic difficulties which they left in their wake delayed the maturing of the few talents. There are twenty or thirty novelists now under fifty who will rise markedly in stature, including Simone De Beavoir, Sartre and Camus.
