The article analyzes the book "Contemporary French Poetry" which is written by Joseph Chiari. Chiari, although himself a poet, is much more concerned with philosophical attitudes than with versification. Of French poet, Paul Eluard he writes "I have only to Conjure up Eluard's strongly moved face, while he was describing the horrors he had seen during this war, or his anxiety about the Spanish war, and about the apathy which prevailed all round while the shadows lengthened over Europe, to be made fully aware of his strong sense of responsibility." He is one of the poets to whom Chiari pays most careful attention; he speaks from their midst, is thoroughly enmeshed in their tradition.
