This thesis is a discussion and analysis of Jean Marcel Bruller (Vecors).Vecors has not claimed to belong to the mainstream of literacy thought that developed toward the mid-twentieth century; he has characterized himself as a “lone wolf”.Moreover, he has made a clear distinction between his personality as a writer and as a man.As a writer, he was known for his superb first work, but Vercos has expressed his desire that he not be forever known for the single work. By the time he expressed this desire, Vecors evidently thought that he had written other things worthy of recognition, that philosophies that he had come to express were quite possibly more important than the poignancy of his first piece.Certainly the number of his writings which have appeared since 1942 coupled with his desire for recognition of those works, justify some sort of inquiry into his works.
