Fishburn and Hughes: "The pseudonym of André Nepveu, a French writer whose literary aim was 'the conquest of the world through images and visions'. Luc Durtain was a member of 'L'Abbaye', an artistic society founded in 1906, which sought to unite writers and painters in an atmosphere of intellectual comradeship, away from the constraints of society."
