Staff Reviews


Sartre's most famous play, No Exit, not only contains the familiar line "Hell is other people," but also captures an amazing depth and range of human emotion and interaction, all written in Sartre's subtle yet powerful style. And not to be overshadowed are the other plays found in this collection: The Flies, The Respectful Prostitute, and the compelling and complex Dirty Hands. An excellent read!

— Emily

Description


NOBEL PRIZE WINNER • Four seminal plays by one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century.

An existential portrayal of Hell in Sartre's best-known play, as well as three other brilliant, thought-provoking works: the reworking of the Electra-Orestes story, the conflict of a young intellectual torn between theory and conflict, and an arresting attack on American racism.
