The Aesthetics of Hate

This chapter discusses how these far-right writers both belonged to the same intellectual and political tradition—that of Maurrassian nationalism and Catholic politics—yet also departed from that tradition in significant ways. Recognizing the networks, affiliations, and affinities of 1930s intellectuals with their elders helps us to grasp the circulation of common themes—dissolution, disgust, abjection—from 1931 to 1936, but also allows us to trace the ideological differences that emerged after 1938, which coalesced around the questions of gender, sex, race, and French civilization. These differences emerged most strikingly around the place and role of anti-Semitism in a larger French ultra-nationalism and in the decision to refute or embrace the title of “French fascists”.

Keywords:   far-right writers, Maurrassian nationalism, Catholic politics, anti-Semitism, dissolution, disgust, abjection, French fascists, ultra-nationalism
