5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to the work of Sartre 28 May 2007
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This may be a 'crib' but it is possible to learn a great deal from it. It is not only about the two plays, but also contains a short biography of Sartre, and summaries and analyses of his major works, the novel "Nausea" and his major philosophical work "Being and Nothingness".It also contains a summary of the essay on 'Existensialism' one of his most influential works.

It does not however as it was published in 1983 contain the latest revelations about Sartre's life and work. At the time it was written my sense is Sartre's reputation was more unimpeached than it is today. This guide stresses how much of a 'humanist' Sartre was , and how he always focused on the human situation, and how deeply his writing is involved in the social problems of mankind.

But Sartre's gung- ho Communist Anarchism is seen by many today as less than commendable. And his personal life shown to be far more contemptible and exploitative than was previously thought.

In any case this work which rightly see Sartre more as writer than philosopher provides an excellent introduction to his overall accomplishment.

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible piece 12 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sartre's "No Exit" not only provides a version of Hell that is the complete polar opposite of Dante's vision but he succeeds in making it seem scarier...and funnier. The fact that these three strangers start attacking each other like small children causes the reader (and viewer if watching a produced version) to secretly chuckle. One always wonders though as to whether they would fall into the same trap that these three do were they in the same predicament.
