The broad purpose of this paper is to bring attention to the subject of terrorism. Two plays by are compared which both treat this matter somewhat differently. The two plays are "Les Mains Sales" by Jean Paul Sartre and "Les Justes" by Albert Camus. The two authors who are both descendents of the existentialist time period have quite differing views on the subject. Sartre was known for his belief in action while Camus was known to be more of a pacifist. Both of these issues are portrayed in the paper. This paper also goes one step further because it looks at the literary aspect of both plays yet also places them and their theories into today's context. Both of the plays look terrorism from the eyes of the terrorist. However the issues and theories presented here bring some insight into the terrorists mind and how that affects the world today.
