Michel Leiris (1901-1990), famed anthropologist, essayist, autobiographer, and art critic, has been regarded for the last fifty years as an authoritative reference for any investigation combining literature and the human sciences. Yet because of his aloof and reserved personality, he has remained on the sidelines of many modern movements and few books ahave been written about him. This issue of Yale French Studies pays tribute to Leiris as a great man of letters in twentieth-century European culture.
