Huis Clos (book review) Jean-Paul Sartre

210419: read somewhere that to understand ‘la nausee’ (nausea) you have to read his philosophy text l’etre et le neante’ (being and nothingness). helpful here, but if you have some sartrean existential sense, read on or of his thought, his themes/assertions, his thoughts/morals etc are evident if not too annoying if you disagree. intro is english english but play is in french. years (decades...) since first read translation but not much change, fun though. quotable. and anyway as the intro notes, this is literature not philosophy...
