Different versions of hell
As I was reading "No Exit" I kept thinking back to the different versions of Hell that we have come across in the literature that we have read. It is interesting to see how each version of hell varies from being mythical, to our mode vision of Hell, and to he one presented in "No Exit". "No Exit"' presented a hell that was simply like an ordinary world with a few modifications. I realize that "No Exit" is and existentialist novel which make me wonder of it influenced Sartre's depiction of Hell, given that it seems as if Sartre intentionally made his Hell simple because having a mythical factor like everyone else was not significant.
