HELL BY HENRI BARBUSSE PDF

Book reviews from critics. Synopsis "The Inferno", Henri Barbusse's novel, is a brilliant examination of the philosophy of solipsism, which is the idea that knowledge outside of one's own mind is essentially unobtainable. Solipsism conjectures that the external world and the minds of other people can never be known to truly exist. The narrative follows an unnamed man who by cutting a hole in his room gains a view to the outside world. He voyeuristically bears witness to the full breadth of human experience and emotion. He witnesses love, death, adultery, and birth and considers the philosophical implications of all that he sees.
