At the end of his play, No Exit, Sartre declares (vicariously) that, "Hell is other people."

My familiarity with hell is entirely Dante-derived. And Dante (who, if you'll recall was there and would know) portrays hell as a lonely, or at least self-absorbed, experience.

I'm not sure what to do with this. Perhaps I should off to bed.
