This chapter scrutinizes four writers--Joyce, Cocteau, Jahnn, and Valéry--as test cases. It concludes that Joyce in Ulysses and Valéry in La jeune Parque and La cimetière marin fulfill precisely the same search for order and form as do the exemplary classicists. But Cocteau’s adaptation of Antigone remained essentially superficial, while Jahnn’s scandalous Medea was utterly unclassical in its violence and sexuality.
