No Exit
No Exit: A Play in One Act | Jean-Paul Sartre
7 posts | 40 read | 10 to read
Fantasy / Characters: 2 male, 2 female Scenery: Interior No Exit was first presented in New York at the Biltmore Theatre with Claude Dauphin, Annabella, and Ruth Ford. Two women and one man are locked up together for eternity in one hideous room in hell. The windows are bricked up; there are no mirrors; the electric lights can never be turned off; and there is no exit. The irony of this hell is that its torture is not of the rack and fire, but of the burning humiliation of each soul as it is stripped of its pretenses by the cruel curiosity of the damned. Here the soul is shorn of secrecy, and even the blackest deeds are mercilessly exposed to the fierce light of hell. It is an eternal torment.

L‘enfer, c‘est les autres.
#hell #augustisatrip

I liked reading this for a French literature class at university. We had one semester of plays, such as No Exit, Rhinoceros, and Cyrano de Bergerac.

vkois88 I had to stop reading the blurb when I saw it was three people in a small room... that alone is scary enough and close to hell for me! I get claustrophobic and anxious around too many people 😦 1y

I've been seeing this beautiful quote quite a lot on the Internet and today I discovered that it's from the tagged book. This play now goes on my #tbr (because I'm a fan of existentialism, and very fond of Sartre's work I've read so far). 📚📚📓 #philosophy #existentialism

I'll start off the @bookriot #riotgrams challenge on Day 5, because why not. I have two bookish tattoos, both influenced by Jean-Paul Sartre. This one is "L'enfer, c'est les autres" (Hell is other people).

Hell is—other people!

Handmade_Redhead My feelings exactly after a week of customer service. 3y
IndyHannaJones I did a speech piece out of this in high school. It is very difficult to make this play into a one woman show. 3y

Pickpick

I read Huis clos for my advanced French class and even though I did not understand everything-we will discuss it in class and then I will😄-it was pretty good.
It's existentialism and shows a place where hell is not a place of physical torture. There are only four characters one of which is minor and one room they are in.
3.5/5⭐️

Gezemice Lol! Reminds me when I saw a billboard with "Hell is real" - and I thought, yep, and it is wherever the people are who put this sign up. 3y
BookBabe Omg, I love this! 😍😁 3y
BookishFeminist Yes!! I love it! I've been tempted to get this pattern before because I completely agree 🤐 3y
Hobbinol Sartre was a genius, of course, but with a strabismus in one eye, it's a good thing he wrote the old fashioned way and left cross stitch to others!😏 3y
