“A magnificent novel of a type that only Montherlant could produce…The author’s feat in embodying much of himself in such an exceptional creation wile maintaining his customary austerity of view an of style, his almost frightening insolence and is extraordinary gift for characterization evoke…admiration.” –New York Times Book Review

“Indisputably a magnificent writer.” –Saturday Review

“Written with intense control and beautifully translated, Chaos and Night is one of those rare explorations of the place where political commitment, religious faith, illusion and necessity intersect, where morality and mortality come to terms.” –The New York Times

“Wry and likeable” –Time

“Admired by such as Malraux, Camus, Graham Greene and Peter Quennell…[and] one of the few French dramatists worthy of ranking with Corneille and Racine…This is a magnificent novel of a type that only he could produce…Henry de Montherlant will live as one of the outstanding writers of the century.” –The New York Times

“Well rendered in English by Terence Kilmartin.” –The New York Review of Books
