Jean-Paul Sartre

I've realized that Jean-Paul Sartre is really the first author that we've read and didn't receive a brief biography on. So I thought I think it upon myself to talk about Sartre's biography. He was born in Paris France in 1905 and died in 1980. He was known to be a French philosopher, novelist, playwright, political activist, and literary critic. He was also known as one of the leading figures in Marxism. We know that No Exit was set shortly after World War Two. Sartre no was influenced by the war a lot as he was drafted to the French army spent nine months as a prisoner of war in 1940.  That just some stuff i found and wanted to share.

I think that's awesome that you gave us this background. I think we read some information on Sartres but it was nice to see this info. I didn't knew when he was alive and it was interesting reading all of this. I always think why Sartre wrote this after WW2 and I guess it's because everyone who fought would go to hell. But why would he put these people in hell? What sins did Sartres comit himself that puts him into hell? -Ashley Bossier
