SUMMARY We Have Only This Life to Live

CHARACTERS Þ We Have Only This Life to Live Ections on politics that are both incisive and incendiary; portraits of Camus and Merleau Ponty; and a candid reckoning with his own career from one of the interviews that ill health made his prime mode of communication late in life Together they add up to an uneualed portrait of a revolutionary and sometimes reckless thinker and writer and his contentious difficult but never less than interesting times. Though I spent almost three months reading this book yet it doesn t say anything about how wonderful it is But uite the contrary this defines its goodness that it doesn t need to be read seuently I love how Sartre s philosophy and good sense of writing are being combined I love that even the topics that I didn t use to be interested in are now way interesting to me I love how every social issue either universal or particular is being discussed beautifully and in depth

CHARACTERS Þ We Have Only This Life to Live Philosopher novelist playwright biographer journalist and activist Jean Paul Sartre was also and perhaps above all a great essayist The essay was uniuely suited to Sartre because of its intrinsically provisional and open ended character It is the perfect form in which to dramatize the existential character of our deepest intellectual artistic and political commitments This new selection of Sartre’s es. Dos Passos s world like Faulkner s Kafka s or Stendhal s is impossible because it is contradictory But therein lies its beauty Beauty is a veiled contradiction I regard Dos Passos as the greatest writer of our time Jean Paul Sartre On John Dos Passos and 1919Thirty Jean Paul Satre essays collected here addressing topics ranging from a clarification of existentialism Husserl s phenomenology Kierkegaard s philosophy the American working class Vietnam war crimes to reflections on artists and literary writers such as Faulkner Camus Bataille Calder and Giacometti As philosophyscholar Ronald Aronson so aptly states in his illuminating Introduction to this New York Review Books NYRB edition Sartre writes with remarkable freedom never settling into a single predictable tone He engages issues with extreme attention getting statements vividly and forcefully taking a position on the uestion at hand Rather than making general statements in the very spirit of Jean Paul Sartre and his existential philosophy I will be as specific as possible commenting on direct uotes from one of his essays I find particularly vivid and forceful On John Dos Passos and 1919 A novel is a mirror Everyone says so But what is it to read a novel I believe that it is to jump into the mirror Suddenly you find yourself through the looking glass among people and objects that seem familiar Ha A novel is a powerful world we leap into as if Alice through the looking glass a complete world into itself familiar yet uniue How many worlds have you leaped into and thus have expanded your sense of people and objects expanded your entire sense of life Sartre goes on to convey the power a novel can have on a reader when written by a first rate author like John Dos Passos This is not narrative it is the jerky unwinding of a raw memory full of holes which sums up a period of several years in a few words then lingers languidly over some tiny fact In this it is just like our real memories a jumble of frescoes and miniatures By Sartre s reckoning Dos Passos magically treats time in a way that parallels much of our own very human sense of time and memory Even effectively than Faulkner s treatment of time now that s a real accomplishment Nowhere however do we have the sense of novelistic freedom Rather Dos Passos forces on us the unpleasant impression of an indeterminacy of detail Acts emotions and ideas settle suddenly upon a character make their nests and then fly off without the character himself having much to do with it So for Sartre John Dos Passos has created a world where actions feelings sensations and even ideas become forces pressing against our internal existential freedom And for an author who famously wrote Man is condemned to be free because once thrown into the world he is responsible for everything he does it really is a tribute to John Dos Passos that Sartre judged him the finest living novelist In his storytelling Dos Passos deliberately chose the perspective of history he wants to make us feel that the die is cast In Man s Hope Malraux says or less that the tragic thing about death is that it transforms life into fate From the first lines of his book Dos Passos has settled into death All the existence he retraces have closed upon themselves They are like those Bergsonian memories that float around after the death of the body full of shouts and smells and light in some sort of limbo By these words Sartre conveys his admiration for Dos Passos and his ability to deal with death face to face Personally it never occurred to me that John Dos Passos was a key existentialist On the strength of Sartre s words I now plan to read his USA trilogy Dos Passos reports all his character words in the style of press releases They are as a result immediately cut off from thought they are pure words simple reactions to be registered as such after the fasion of the behaviorists from whom Dos Passos takes occasional inspiration But at the same time utterances assume a social importance they are sacred they become maxims What s fascinating is how words in the style of a press release can then take on a dimension of the sacred For me a novelistic turn worth exploring since never in my life have I read a press release that I discerned having even a shred of commonality with the sacred Or for that matter ever becoming a universal maxim Yesterday you saw your best friend and told him of your passionate hatred of the war Now try to tell yourself that story in the style of Dos Passos Thank you Jean Paul Sartre This is a challenge for all of us to recast and transform our passion into a story we can tell ourselves in the style of this John Dos Passos novel And I would even go further what Sartre asks us to do with 1919 we can attempt with any novel having a profound effect on us 1919 is the second of American author John Dos Passos s USA trilogy The trilogy consists of The 42nd Parallel 1930 1919 1932 and The Big Money 1936
