`` No Exit `` By Jean Paul Sartre

- ... The second, deeper level is that hell is other people’s presence and how they remind one of how inadequate their own behavior has been. The one act, existentialist play, “No Exit,” exemplifies this perfectly by setting up three characters, Garcin, Estelle, and Inez, to prove that hell is other people on two different levels.

While telling the story of why he is in hell, he states that, “Night after night I came home blind drunk, stinking of wine and women.” (24) He was hell for his wife, even if she never shed a tear....   [tags: Jean-Paul Sartre, Existentialism, No Exit]

Jean-Paul Sartre’s Play No Exit

- Jean-Paul Sartre’s Play “No Exit” Existentialism is a very confusing concept to understand. Existentialism is a school of thought, so to speak, where people believe that for every action there is a reaction. Moreover, most of the time, the reaction is a negative one. There is the basic understanding that humans have free will. They have the choice to do whatever they feel in life, which in turn makes life very stressful. Our choices obviously result in some other consequence, and as I said, the consequences, though we may not notice, are negative ones....   [tags: Existentialism Sartre No Exit Essays]
