La Grande Guerre dans la littérature populaire et dans le roman d’aventures et d’évasion

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: La Grande Guerre des écrivains : études
  • Authors: Corvisier (Jean-Nicolas), Talon (Guy)
  • Abstract: Patriotic before 14, popular literature served the war effort, spreading hatred of the Boche (Leroux, Leblanc). The war marked it until 1939, with both the memory of the ­conflict, and the surge in spy novels and novels of the fantastic. This was the same with novels of escape which, with a neater formal structure and more subtle psychological analysis (Benoîtor Vercel), evolved into the hard-hitting crime novel (Simenon) or the bitter satire (Chevalier).
