Jean-Paul Sartre was born in Paris in 1905 and died there in 1980. After completing his education at the Ecole Normale, he taught philosophy in provincial lycees and in 1938 published his first novel Nausea. During the War, he participated in the Resistance and completed the major work which eventually won him international fame as an existentialist philosopher - Being and Nothingness (1943). After the Liberation, he founded the socialist journal Les Temps Modernes. He also wrote the novel-cycle The Roads to Freedom (1945-48). And was a prolific playwright. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1964, which he refused. After the May Revolt of 1968, he assumed increasingly direct political work in France. In 1971-72, the first three volumes of his ambitious study of Flaubert's life and work appeared.
