A Tribute to Jean Paul-Satre

Post by: Kabita

 “If you're lonely when you're alone, you're in bad company.”

Jean-Paul Sartre



Famous for challenging the social and cultural fabric of the French society in the 1930s, French writer, philosopher, playwright, screenwriter, political activist, biographer and literary critic, Jean Paul-Sarte was born on June 21, 1905. He was drafted into the French army in 1939; he served as a meteorologist. He was captured by the Germans in 1940 at Padoux, and he served a nine-month sentence as a prisoner-of-war. In 1959, he argued that every French individual was responsible for the collective crimes during the Algerian War of Independence.


Sartre’s most famous works include The Chips are Down, Nausea, The Devil and the Good Lord, The Condemned of Altona, No Exit, Dirty Hands, The Imaginary, Being and Nothingness, The Transcendence of the Ego, The Respectful Prostitute, Troubled Sleep and The Files among other works. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1964; however he refused it saying that ‘a writer should not allow himself to be turned into an institution’. He died on April 15, 1980.
