The article discusses about a play "Tiger at the Gates," by Jean Giraudoux. If decadence means that individual cells have, developed at the expense of the organism a whole, the art of Giraudoux cannot escape the charge of decadence. In his plays; language descends in such a torrent that the speeches, as it were, jump the banks of the drama. In Tiger, for example, the logic and eloquence of one passage makes Andromache say that she and hector live in constant conflict; the action of the play. suggests quite the contrary.
