A two-part essay on the "myth" of revolution and the figure of the artist. Iconic French novelist, playwright and essayist Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) is widely recognized as one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, and his work has remained relevant and thought-provoking through the decades. The Seagull Sartre Library now presents some of his most incisive philosophical, cultural, and literary critical essays in newly designed and affordable editions. On Revolution consists of a long essay in two parts in which Sartre dwells upon the "myth" of revolution and goes on to analyze revolutionary ideas in fascism and, especially, Marxism. In the second essay, Sartre examines the figure of the artist and his conscience, especially in relation to communism.
