Jean Paulhan?s Lettre aux directeurs de la r?sistance is an important statement about the influence of Communism in intellectual and literary circles. On publication in 1952, the pamphlet revived the debates over collaboration with the Nazi authorities that had dominated French society since the Liberation, and it still has important echoes today. This new presentation of the pamphlet by John Flower examines both Paulhan?s evolution during this period and his position alongside those of other key figures such as Mauriac and Camus. The volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of this turbulent period and provides a documentary history of the post war political and literary debates in Paris. Professor Flower has had access to hitherto unpublished material from the archives of Paulhan and Mauriac as well as those of the CNE (Comit? national des ?crivains). The appendices include the original open letters Paulhan wrote to the CNE, two pamphlets by Courier, some extracts from a polemical pamphlet by Brille and a selection of the many articles and letters that appeared in the national press. The book also includes a full contextualising Introduction by the editor. This is a volume in the series Exeter Textes Litt?raires, published under the general editorship of David Cowling of University of Exeter. Exeter Textes Litt?raires is dedicated to making available editions of little known or neglected French literary texts. Editions are normally in French to ensure the widest readership, and are underpinned by the highest editorial standards.
