P. O'Flaherty's analysis traces Montherlant's beliefs and the techniques employed in their expression to Plato and Montaigne, but situates his concern with an incoherent universe and his experiments in form in the context of the twentieth century's search for ethical values in a world which has ceased to believe in God and which questions whether it should continue to place its faith in man.
