About this title


Antoine Roquentin, a thirty-five-year-old bachelor lives alone in Bouville, an imaginary town that recalls Havre. He is working on a book about the life of the late Marquis of Rollebon, an aristocrat of the late eighteenth century, and living off his income, after leaving a job in Indochina, the fatigue of travel and what he believes to be the adventure. This awareness marks one of Sartre's first important thoughts in the book. Roquentin is no longer compatible with the bourgeoisie or Mr. Bouville Rollebon who quickly seems boring and uninteresting, since history is about what has existed, and never an existing one can justify the existence of another Existing. It was then, in one of the most philosophical passages of the book, that he relates how dizzying he is conscious.

About the Author:

Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre was born on June 21, 1905 in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. He was a French writer and philosopher, representative of the existentialist movement whose work and personality marked the intellectual and political life of France from 1945 to 1970. A prolific writer, founder and editor of Modern Times magazine, he is known both for his philosophical and literary works that, due to his political commitments, first, in association with the Communist Party and then with the left-wing currents of 1970. Without compromise and faithful to his ideas, he always rejected both honors and any form of censorship. In particular, he refused the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964. He shared his life with Simone de Beauvoir, a feminist philosopher and existentialism. Their philosophies, although close, should not be confused, although both authors have influenced each other. She was deeply criticized by JankÚlÚvitch for her attitude during the occupation. With this book, his first novel, Sartre reached a fame that will be developed later. In 1950, this novel is included in the list of the Great Prize of the best novels of half a century. Jean-Paul Sartre died in Paris on April 15, 1980.
