The Words
Bok av Jean-Paul Sartre
After his father's early death Jean-Paul Sartre was brought up at his grandfather's home in a world even then eighty years out of date. In Words Sartre recalls growing up within the confines of French provincialism in the period before the First World War, an illusion-ridden childhood made bearable by his lively imagination and passion for reading and writing. A brilliant work of self-analysis, Words provides an essential background to the philosophy of one of the profoundest thinkers of the twentieth century.
Jean Paul Sartres självbiografi som är ett tidsdokument och en mycket vackert skriven bok om författarens uppväxt. Många Aha-upplevelser och en bok jag själv tycker borde vara obligatorisk på gymnasiet. Underhållande lärorik och härligt frispråkig.
