Description François Mauriac is for the movement of the Hussards an unavoidable personality whose image evolved from a most protective figure into a literary and ideological opponent. It is curious to note, in this sense, the weight of the political factor in changing attitudes, particularly regarding the Gaullism. As if the literary movement that was formed in reaction against the influence of politics on the literary field were hiding under its statements of disengagement a repressed political sensitivity of Maurrassism and the spirit of the journal Action française. François Mauriac appears in this sense as a symptomatical, revealing agent.
