The Aesthetics of Hate

Far-right Intellectuals, Antisemitism, and Gender in 1930s France

eBook - 2013
Rate this:
This book examines the writings of a motley collection of interwar far-right intellectuals, showing that they defined Frenchness in racial, gendered, and sexual terms. A broad, ambitious cultural and intellectual history, the book offers a provocative reinterpretation of a topic that has long been the subject of controversy. In works infused with rhetorics of abjection, disgust, and dissolution, such writers as Maulnier, Brasillach, Céline, and Blanchot imagined the nation through figures deemed illegitimate or inferior - Jews, colonial subjects, homosexuals, women.
