Sartre and Beauvoir

Sartre and Beauvoir

A Very Gentle Occupation?

(p.49) Chapter Three Sartre and Beauvoir
Traces of War

Colin Davis

Liverpool University Press

Sartre and Beauvoir have been accused of having a rather easy Occupation, cementing their literary and intellectual careers and pursuing their sexual conquests. They certainly wrote a great deal. This chapter discusses their works written during and about the war, and considers the curious absence of a sense of danger or trauma which these texts suggest. There are nevertheless signs of a more traumatized, problematic experience underlying their deceptively calm texts.
