The words by Jean-Paul Sartre ( Book )
10 editions published between 1964 and 1981 in English and held by 2,297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jean-Paul Sartre was arguably the best-known and most influential French writer of his time. As a philosopher, as a novelist, as a playwright, as the author of filmscripts, as the editor of Les Temps Modernes, as a man who was never afraid to commit himself to the moral and political as well as the literary life of his own times, he was unique. Not since Voltaire has Western civilization produced so humane, manifold, and boldly "engaged" a man of letters. At 59, he undertook his autobiography, bringing to his own childhood the same rigor of honesty and insight which he had applied so brilliantly in earlier books to Baudelaire and Jean Genet. "Directed to the heart as well as to the intellect," the result is like nothing else in the Sartre canon, or in France, where The Words has been accorded a place beside that other masterpiece of self-analysis, Rousseau's Confessions.--Adapted from publisher description

12 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
". Saint Genet is Jean-Paul Sartre & rsquo;s classic biography of Jean Genet & amp;mdash;thief, convict, and great artist & amp;mdash;a character of almost legendary proportions whose influence grows stronger with time. Bringing together two of the century & amp;rsquo;s greatest minds and artists, Saint Genet is at once a compelling psychological portrait, masterpiece of literary criticism, and one of Sartre & amp;rsquo;s most personal and inspired philosophical creations."

The ethics of ambiguity by Simone de Beauvoir ( Book )
22 editions published between 1948 and 1996 in English and held by 1,003 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In de Beauvoir & rsquo;s second major essay, the renowned French philosopher illustrates the ethics of Existentialism by outlining a series of & ldquo;ways of being & rdquo; In this classic introduction to Existentialist thought, French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir & rsquo;s The Ethics of Ambiguity simultaneously pays homage to and grapples with her French contemporaries, philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Maurice Merleau-Ponty, by arguing that the freedoms in Existentialism carry with them certain ethical responsibilities. While contemplating Nihilism, Surrealism, Existentialism, Objectivity, and human values, The Ethics of Ambiguity is a thorough examination of existence and what it means to human life. To do this, de Beauvoir outlines a series of & ldquo;ways of being & rdquo; (the adventurer, the passionate person, the lover, the artist, and the intellectual), each of which overcomes the former & rsquo;s deficiencies, and therefore can live up to the responsibilities of freedom. Ultimately, de Beauvoir argues that in order to achieve true freedom, one must battle against the choices and activities of those who suppress it

The emotions, outline of a theory by Jean-Paul Sartre ( Book )
11 editions published between 1948 and 2001 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sartre contemplates the human emotional experience by analyzing phenomenological psychology and existentialism In The Emotions: Outline of a Theory, French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre attempts to understand the role emotions play in the human psyche. Sartre analyzes fear, lust, anguish, and melancholy while asserting that human beings begin to develop emotional capabilities from a very early age, which helps them identify and understand the emotions & rsquo; names and qualities later in life. Helping to complete the circle of Sartre & rsquo;s many theories on existentialism, this vital piece of literature is a must-have for the philosopher-in-training & rsquo;s collection

Our Lady of the Flowers by Jean Genet ( Book )
19 editions published between 1949 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Novel by Jean Genet, written while he was in prison for burglary and published in 1944 in French as Notre-Dame des fleurs. The novel and the author were championed by many contemporary writers, including Jean-Paul Sartre and Jean Cocteau, who helped engineer a pardon for Genet. A wildly imaginative fantasy of the Parisian underworld, the novel tells the story of Divine, a male prostitute who consorts with thieves, pimps, murderers, and other criminals and who has many sexual adventures. Written in lyrical, dreamlike prose, the novel affirms a new moral order, one in which criminals are saints, evil is glorified, and conventional taboos are freely violated." --THE MERRIAM-WEBSTER ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LITERATURE
Deathwatch by Jean Genet ( Book )
5 editions published between 1961 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Deathwatch, Jean Genet's earliest play, was first performed in Paris in 1949. Short and intensely powerful, it is an excellent introduction to his later dramatic work - The Maids, The Balcony and The Blacks. The French text, published by Gallimard, was extensively altered by Genet in the course of rehearsal; and Bernard Frechtman's translation is of the final acting version, which supersedes the original published text
Literature & existentialism by Jean-Paul Sartre ( )
2 editions published between 1949 and 1994 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In a probing philosophical exploration of the act of literary creation, Sartre asks: & ldquo;What is writing?, & rdquo; & ldquo;Why write?, & rdquo; and & ldquo;For whom does one write? & rdquo; After discussing existentialism as it pertains to art, human emotions, and psychology, French existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre turns the question of existentialism to the subject of literature by stating that he wishes to & ldquo;examine the art of writing without prejudice. & rdquo; Sartre eschews the idea of artists and writers comparing their works of art to one another; instead, he argues, & ldquo;they exist by themselves. & rdquo; Tying into his thoughts on literature, Sartre additionally delves into Marxist politics, the intellectual labor of the writer, the individual reader, and the reading public
