Pennsylvania: The Franklin Library, 1978. Limited Edition. Octavo. Item #029208
484 pages, signed by the author. Sartre, in his plays, describes the stage as "a different imaginary realm". This edition also has a special introduction by the author where he shows how both No Exit and The Flies had meanings that met the censorship of the Third Reich. No Exit was revived shortly after the Allied invasion. One of the fine works that show the interplay between acting and philosophy. In The Condemned of Altona he deals with both the horror of the death camps and the issues of God. A fine bright copy bound in red leather lettered and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt.
