    In Jean-Paul Sartre’s play, No Exit, which he wrote during World War II, there are many historical and traditional voices present. Existentialism as well as his experiences in the war and Christianity’s definition of Hell shape the play’s ideas and overall thought tremendously. Throughout the play, Sartre incorporates his existentialist thoughts as well as Christianity’s view on Hell as a traditional voice. As a historical voice, he blends together his feelings and experiences from the war in that Hell is other people. The way Sartre was damaged mentally by his captivity and what he saw in the war shaped the way his characters develop throughout the story and the way the plot unfolds. In No Exit, Garcin, Estelle, and Inez are obviously in Hell. Nazi Germany’s occupation of Paris and other cities and countries was a living Hell for many individuals, especially Sartre, in that time period. He experienced the terrors of not knowing if he or his comrades were going to die at any minute or whether or not they would be attacked. Sartre was captured by German soldiers for nine months and held captive, which is when he wrote this play. All three of these characters experience this ‘living Hell’, n which Sartre…

    No Exit Analysis

    • 794 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Tulane’s production of No Exit was a very fun experience. No Exit itself is a very interesting story, with some very good dialogue. The dialogue really has to be very good, as the entire play takes place in a single room, which leaves a very heavy burden upon the actors to not only remember lines, but to execute them. While no doubt I think Garcin, Inez and Estelle were played a little differently than how Satre intended, the parts were acted well, and I view the differences from the script as…

    Artistic responses When I first read No Exit by Jean-Paul Sartre my immediate thoughts were thoughts of life choices, after life, regrets, torture, and life versus death. The play brought a sense of helplessness and confusion. When I first read this play I pictured a dark eerie room bare, with three sofas, and nothing more. I could hear the sighs of desperation and defeat throughout the building, and I felt the feeling of being trapped with no escape. Due to my first responses, I hoped that the…

    Existentialism is the philosophical notion that existence precedes essence. We are born first and then decide what meaning our lives will have. Existentialism maintains, that our choices determine our nature and that there is no predisposition of what each human is born to do. Humans, according to existentialist beliefs, are condemned to be free. With freedom comes consequences. Since humans are free to make their own decisions, we are each responsible for our own consequences. Letting others…
