The Reinvention of the Couple

Diogenes 54 (4):29-34 (2007)
?This paper traces back on a personal tone a provocative evocation of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. The author considers existentialism as a laboratory of existence that influenced a generation?s manner of living and writing and made one?s existential desires into historical and political acts. Its most representative mode of expression, literature, was as an indicator of the presence of the private throughout the public world and time. In this view, de Beauvoir?s presence is approached both from the perspective of her understanding of the female, and from the particular kind of couple she formed with Sartre. ?
