A political drama set in the fictional country of Illyria between and , the story is about the assassination of a leading politician.
The story is told mainly in the form of a flashback, with the killer describing how he carried out his mission. The killer's identity is established from the beginning, but the question is whether his motivations were political or personal. Thus, the play's main theme is not on who did it, but on why it was done. A lot of reviewers here on Goodreads well, David, anyway don't appear to like Sartre. But, if you think he was a complete asshole as a person, and you're not too thrilled about the way he supported the Communist Party, you might want to read Les Mains Sales ; it's a short, engaging play, that won't take you more than a couple of hours to get through, and Sartre does a better job of taking himself apart than you're ever likely to manage.

Hugo, the central character, is a nightmare self-caricature: pathetic, whiny, neurotic, and completely out of touch with reality.

Having struggled through a piece of pornographic trash, Manfred tells me he's now able to read books for grown-ups.
He hasn't actually read many books, though he hates admitting it. See, they both want to explain philosophy to you, but they're trying to make it more fun by turning it into a story. His country's been invaded by the Nazis, but now the Germans are losing.
He's working for the Communist underground. The Russian army is coming so they've got a great chance to take over. But they don't agree on the right strategy to use.
The leader of the Communists is a guy called Hoederer. He says there aren't enough of them, they've got to be practical and do a deal with the other parties to share power. The other Communists say that's treason to the Party. They give Hugo the job of killing Hoederer. He's going to become his secretary, and when he gets a chance he's going to shoot him.
But you don't know why he shoots him. That's where the philosophy comes in. It's kind of deep. Manfred ignores my sarcasm. He's read all these books and he has all these ideas about what's right and wrong. He thinks he's going to kill Hoederer because Hoederer has the wrong ideas and he's dangerous to the Party. But really, you see it's not the ideas at all. He talks with Hoederer and he sees Hoederer's ideas are just as good as his.
Better, even. He only thought he had to shoot him because he talked to the other guys first. And he gets so mad that he shoots him. But really it's just their feelings. Can we get another one? View all 11 comments.
Dirty hands is the first play I read. In fact, it is through it that I got to know the very mentioned Sartre. The best part of that play is the fast and concise dialogues between the characters that make your reading flow like a river in an agreeable way that transform the story into an enjoyable light reading. This play is awesome it tackles so many themes. He seems to build his world around a certain political idealism that will haunt him for so long.
Various questions are worth stopping at like: Are you really convinced by something or is it just a matter of what you were taught first? Is the pursuit of the meaning you create worth making a fool of yourself and become responsible for what is in regard of the other and the world total nonsense?
Is conceding to reason and abandoning fanaticism such a bad choice? Are your choice actually your own or is it just the plaything of feelings? Is history sincere or is it just parties agreeing what should be fabricated for the mass to swallow?
Are political leaders even convinced of their ideologies or is it just a veil to blind people and help them to propagate their lies? Do politicians have one common and unique doctrine that is the selfish interest of the party whatever the cost?
So many questions and many many more are at the heart of all other reasons you could possibly get your hand on as to why should you read it. View 1 comment. There are better ways to pass an evening. The protagonist of "Les mains sales" is given the assignment by the Illyrian communist party to kill a renegade leader. Sartre the great existentialist has thus employed a device of the operetta. Not be forgotten, Illyria is a country of the operettist.
The whole thing is truly too stupid. Despite his borrowings from Johan Strauss and Franz Lehar, Sartre was in fact writing about the challenges facing a young French aristocrat wishing to engage in the communist cause in the s. He then waits eight days before pulling the trigger choosing to spend the time discussing the appropriateness of the assassination with his wife, another woman and the victim. Sartre here seems to be examining the problems and hesitations that he and his fellow Parisians intellectuals had in deciding whether to join the PCF parti communiste francaise.
Sartre ultimately chose to be simply a fellow traveller. This comparison does not favor the dim-witted Sartre.

Las manos sucias
Sartre is the dominant figure in post-war French intellectual life. A graduate of the prestigious Ecole Normale Superieure with an agregation in philosophy, Sartre has been a major figure on the literary and philosophical scenes since the late s. Widely known as an atheistic proponent of existentialism, he emphasized the priority of existence over preconceived essences and the importance of human freedom. In his first and best novel, Nausea , Sartre contrasted the fluidity of human consciousness with the apparent solidity of external reality and satirized the hypocrisies and pretensions of bourgeois idealism. Sartre's theater is also highly ideological, emphasizing the importance of personal freedom and the commitment of the individual to social and political goals. His first play, The Flies , was produced during the German occupation, despite its underlying message of defiance. One of his most popular plays is the one-act No Exit , in which the traditional theological concept of hell is redefined in existentialist terms.
