Reblogged this on EXPERIENCE LITERATURE and commented:
For those not familiar with Sartrean philosophy, I recommend first and foremost reading this short story – “No Exit”, as well as his play “The Flies”, which is based off of Aesychlus’ Oresteia trilogy. “Hell is other people” indeed!
I’m saving this up for later. Thanks! Just a thought – if hell is other people, and we are “other people” to other people, then hell is is all our own fault. On that basis, and given a change in human behaviour, then heaven could also be other people.
