Abstract: We consider the forced Liénard equation

$\displaystyle u'' + f(u)u' + g(t,u) = h(t)$

together with the boundary conditions

$\displaystyle u(0) = u(T),\quad u'(0) = u'(T),$

where $ g$ is continuous on $ {\mathbf{R}} \times (0, + \infty )$ and becomes infinite at $ u = 0$. We consider classical solutions as well as generalized solutions that can go into the singularity $ u = 0$. The method of approach uses upper and lower solutions and degree theory.
