  1. Insects were scurrying about in the shade cast by the grass, and the lawn was a huge monotonous forest of thousands of little green blades, all equal, all alike, hiding the world from each other Anguished, she thought, I don t want to be just another blade of grass Part historical fiction part philosophy, All Men are Mortal by Simone de Beauvoir was written, I can only imagine, to make us wonder about life itself In the first section we read about Raymond Fosca s relationship with Regina, a self [...]

  2. My name is Raymond Fosca I was born in the city of Carmona, in what is now Italy I am over seven hundred years old I am immortal.People imagine that eternal life would be the greatest of all blessings, but they are wrong no horrible curse can be imagined I know, as no mortal man can, the futility of all action For centuries, I strove to preserve the honour and independence of my beloved city I fought bitter wars against our neighbors I forced my citizens to toil and suffer in the service of wha [...]

  3. This is for those who wonder What is the meaning of life and are pessimists A strange novel, this is part historical fiction and part philosophy It dragged at places, but overall, I enjoyed it It definitely made me think My favorite section is the first section, because it is the most like a novel, and a good one at that A self obsessed young actress meets a strange man He tells her he is immortal and suddenly she decides she s in love with him because through his memory, she can exist forever T [...]

  4. Its a very strange book I believe I would have enjoyed it immensely given I did not know that it was written by Beauvoir The complex relationship arguments in the domicile are abruptly transformed into historical fiction which in itself has no flaws, but as an avid reader of Beauvoir s, I can t say I wasn t disappointed I kept waiting for the plot to come back to the endless suffocating arguments within a single room, but they never did.Its a great book in itself, but I did not enjoy it.

  5. Finished this last night around midnight Review to come I ve written it before and I ll write it again here I am not a Lit major My chief exposure to great literature came through my high school teachers, some of whom were quite extraordinary and none were anything less than good And it was one of those teachers who introduced me to the philosophies of Existentialism and Transcendentalism in their American manifestations I forget her name because I never had her in an actual English class but sh [...]

  6. Fosca was born in Italy on the 17th of May 1279 and when he was a young adult he became immortal Not a vampire or a man wolf as in Twilight, but just immortal He gets stabbed and the wound heals He could spice up his brandy with arsenic and feel refreshed after drinking it He doesn t get sick, or get old, and he can go on for months and years sleeping or not eating anything and he d still be the same handsome Fosca This is probably everyone s dream to live in the peak of one s fleshly existence [...]

  7. Simone de Beauvoir s tragic figure the man who cannot die is also a man who cannot love In directly confronting the concepts of mortality and immortality, this novel also metaphorically deals with political ambition as well as intellectual and social alienation The story begins in the early 20th century when Regina, a serious actress, becomes obsessed with Fosca the deathless man in whose gaze she feels she will be saved from the inevitable anonymity of death As Fosca recounts to Regina his seve [...]

  8. A typical case of being stuck at my parents without a book Why do I never learn Oh, that s right, because my parents have books Some of them are even good.What started as a bored okay, let s read a few pages of this , turned into an afternoon of intense reading I was really impressed with this book An unlikely story of a young actress who meets a man who is immortal The contrast between the two lives should be what makes this book interesting, but to me, it was the idea of being immortal Fosca s [...]

  9. After i read the book i felt like an ant Small and weak and unimportant.But the book helps to look at your and all human lifes from a larger distance.My favorite quotes Warum bin ich so beschaffen Fragte Regine sich Wenn Leute um mich her leben, lieben und gl cklich sind, habe ich das Gef hl, da sie an mir einen Mord begehen Simone de Beauvoir Alle Menschen sind sterblich Alles wird genauso sein, und ich bin nicht mehr da So ist der Tod, dachte sie Wenn man wenigstens in der Luft so etwas wie ei [...]

  10. What is the meaning of Life If there is Immortality, what can we do with it Are people happier if they simply die and never wake up or are they happier if they could live forever I liked the philosophic parts from this novel, and frankly, I have been expected them from S.d.Beauvoir There are many questions that this novel makes you ask yourself about goals, life and death , there is a lot of pessimism in it, but also if we can see beyond all those facts and remember the lines in which she descri [...]

  12. A limited future a limited life that is our lot as men French philosopher Simone de Beauvoir s 1008 1986 existentialist novel All Men are Mortal is an extraordinarily strange and imaginative fiction Published in 1946, barely out of the mayhem of the second world war, Beauvoir expertly explorers the nature of mortality In All Men are Mortal, she speculates on some of the tenets of existentialism including love, politics, history, emotion and death.The main character of the novel, Count Raymond F [...]

  13. Despite my fascination with Beauvoir and propensity to give her credit than she perhaps deserves for Existentialism and the development of Jean Paul Sartre, I can t overlook her almost laughable shortcomings as a novelist None of her novels are truly novels, but are philosophical treatises in fiction form see Ayn Rand , and what makes them readable is their compelling philosophical content see The Mandarins This novel has two main flaws 1 its philosophical content is interesting, but could hav [...]
