something has stuck with me from nausea, the ending, the strangely redemptive ending. why is roquentin who has berated art and the bourgeois self importance of the portrait subjects, has found the impossibility of history in his book on m. rollebon, and has above all else rejected one’s living in the past or satisfying their present selves on the achievements of the past suddenly decided to write a novel in affirmation of himself for posterity and the comfort of being able to look back and know he has done something significant? is it just a bad ending? it seems contradictory. i wish I could ask sartre what he meant by it. maybe it is not supposed to be so much a solution to roquentin’s problems as i am taking it to be, not a completion of sartre’s existentialist system, merely a whim, a choice, maybe we are meant to understand he may give up on this book exactly the same as the rollebon book because it is really no different. i’m not sure. i wish i could ask sartre what he meant.

>I gave Maurice Barres a spanking. We were three soldiers and one of us had a hole in the middle of his face. Maurice Barres came up to us and said, “That’s fine!” and he gave each of us a small bouquet of violets. “I don’t know where to put them,” said the soldier with the hole in his head. Then Maurice Barres said, “Put them in the hole you have in your head.” The soldier answered, “I’m going to stick them up your ass.” And we turned over Maurice Barres and took his pants off. He had a cardinal’s red robe on under his trousers. We lifted up the robe and Maurice Barres began to shout: “Look out! I’ve got on trousers with foot-straps.” But we spanked him until he bled and then we took the petals of violets and drew the face of Deroulede on his backside.

Picked up pic related today. What should I know before reading it and what am I in for?

How tough of a read this in the original french? I'm reading "la fin de l'eternité" by Asmov in french and it's going fine, albeit a bit slow. Would I be able to tackle Sartre?
