BeschreibungExistentialist Literature and Aesthetics
Most of Sartre's extensive works of and about literature-his fiction, his drama, his never-produced film script on Freud, and his extensive biographical studies of Genet and Flaubert-as well as theoretical questions about these genres and their relationship to philosophy, are here subjected to critical scrutiny by leading experts from both literature and philosophy. The essays illuminate Sartrean existentialism's contribution to bridging the gap between the two disciplines as well as that between existentialism and other recent approaches to literary criticism.
