What is Literature? remains the most significant critical landmark of French literature since World War II. Neither abstract nor abstruse, it is a brilliant, provocative performance by a writer more inspired than cautious. What is Literature?MoreWhat is Literature? remains the most significant critical landmark of French literature since World War II. Neither abstract nor abstruse, it is a brilliant, provocative performance by a writer more inspired than cautious.

What is Literature? challenges anyone who writes as if literature could be extricated from history or society. But Sartre does more than indict. He offers a definitive statement about the phenomenology of reading, and he goes on to provide a dashing example of how to write a history of literature that takes ideology and institutions into account.

This new edition of What is Literature? also collects three other crucial essays of Sartres for the first time in a volume of his. The essays presenting Sartres monthly, Les Temps modernes, and on the peculiarly French manner of nationalizing literature do much to create a context for Sartres treatise. Black Orpheus has been for many years a key text for the study of black and third-world literatures.
