After the war, the political side of his poetry gave way more and more to lyricism for its own sake. He never went back on that embrace of classicism.

As a novelist he encompasses the whole ethos of the Twentieth century: surrealist novel, socialist realism, realism, nouveau roman. Indeed he was one of the founding personalities of the novel of his time. In 2010, La Poste (French Post Office) issued 3 stamps honoring Louis Aragon.
