About The Book

Reputation of Louis Aragon (1897-1982) is built upon his activities during the Second World War when his poetry embodied the spirit of the French Resistance. This book goes beyond the figure of the Resistance poet to explore the significance of the subject of war throughout his career.


'This is a thoughtful and well-illustrated study of the memory of war in the work of Louis Aragon.' Gavin Bowd, Modern Language Review, 104.1, 2009
