  • Existentialism In Jean-Paul Sartre's No Exit

    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

    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…

  • Sartre No Exit Analysis

    without an idea that a consequence, for example religious views, will follow after every choice you make, then you are truly living freely. It’s the choices that are made that make us who we are; who we become. I think likewise that human beings, based on their decisions, determine what the outcome of their life is. Points of Sartre’s theory are evident in No Exit through the characters self-deception and the cause of the decisions they make in Hell. People can say whatever they want and get…
