- "This lovely, sweet refrain": reading the fiction back into Nausea
- The University of Newcastle. Faculty of Education & Arts, School of Humanities and Social Science
- Jean-paul Sartre's novel of 1938, Nausea (La Nausée), has grown in stature to the extent that it may now be considered a seminal text of the twentieth century. It may also be considered to be the novelistic elaboration of Sartre's theories of Existentidism, which would take on a fuller form towards the end of the Second World War, when Being and Nothingness (L'Être et le néant) appeared in print. In a sense, then, Nausea has become what Sartre always claimed it was and what he always wanted it to be: a treatise on contingency.
