So this is hell

“So this is hell. I’d never have believed it. You remember all we were told about the torture-chambers, the fire and brimstone, the burning marl. Old wives’ tales! There’s no need for red-hot pokers. Hell is other people”

–Jean-Paul Sartre

One thought on “So this is hell

  1. Read this play just yesterday. Have to discuss a quote from it in relation to a couple of Beckett plays. It really is a masterpiece. I think it has great relevance to the Endgame quote:

    “What’s he doing?”
    “He’s crying.”
    “Then he’s alive.”
