Abstract:

Just as Sartre leaves out poetry from his theory of 'engaged literature' in Qu'est-ce que la litt̩rature?, he also leaves out theatre. In the Sartrean view, theatrical language cannot be 'engaged' because no statement on stage can be considered as an action Рthe paradoxical status of theatrical language is that it is, in all circumstances, only a pretended action, literally a form of make-believe. This essay discusses Sartre's aesthetics of theatre, focusing both on his theoretical statements and his own dramaturgy.
