Louis-Ferdinand Céline Quotes

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, a French novelist, pamphleteer and physician. He developed a new style of writing that modernized French literature. His most famous work is the 1932 novel, Journey to the End of the Night.

Céline used a working-class, spoken style of language in his writings, and attacked what he considered to be the overly polished, "bourgeois" language of the "academy". His works influenced a broad array of literary figures, not only in France but also in the English-speaking world and elsewhere in the Western World; this includes authors associated with modernism, existentialism, black comedy and the Beat Generation.

However, Céline's vocal support for the Axis powers during the Second World War and his authorship of some offensively antisemitic pamphlets, has meant that his legacy as a cultural icon is a tangled one.
