The article reports on the status of French literature. It states that a clear evolution referred by some as a decline, is evident in its creative works. It mentions that it depends much on two external factors such as the economic crisis and the subject matter's difficulty. It notes that French Catholics nowadays are writing and working under the "Christian Confrontation" banner. It adds that the leader of "Christian Existentialism" still belongs to Gabriel Marcel.
