In many ways Claudel and Perse reveal a similarity in their purpose and design, yet there are striking differences in their outlook. Claudel's view is Christian in orientation and concerns itself with the human soul; Perse is preoccupied with cosmic forces and universal disorder. Though they seem to be ideological opposites, they both articulate an idealism that this generation values.

Originally published in 1971.
