Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine Henry de Montherlant's novel Le Chaos et la Nuit (1963). The focus will be on  the main character, Celestino Marcilla, an exiled Spanish anarchist, obsessed by the Civil War.  We will demonstrate like his paranoia and his fear of death are an antithesis of the joys and the heroism expressed by Alban de Bricoul, the main character of the early literary works, Le Songe and Les Bestiaires. According to the pessimism of  the last years – the author had been blind in the left eye and had been sick in 1969 and 1971 – this novel can be considered the sadly final of the art of Henry de Montherlant.
