No Exit Analysis of Characters

Characters

Garcin:
Desire: All what Garcin wanted to do, is to show others that he is not a coward. He was also trying to convince himself that what he did is not a coward thing to do. Will: Garcin was lost; he thought he should persuade both Inez and Estelle in order to reach his main objective, he was lost and tried to convince Estelle till he realized it is Inez who should be convinced in order to reach his desire. Moral Stance: What really Garcin wanted and cared about was his dignity and his self respect no matter if he is with Estelle or with Inez. Decorum: He would probably be wearing a loose grey/beige jacket, a white shirt, and beige colored pants to match the jacket and black shoes. Summary Adjective: Coward, A needy man, egocentric, fragile, and insecure.

Inez:
Desire: Her desire was to have Estelle for her from the moment she entered the door. She did her best to make her feel comfortable and fell for her.

Will: To reach her desire and ultimate goal, Inez tried to get closer to Estelle through her actions and her smooth way of talking to her and flirting with her. Moral Stance: Inez made propositions by offering to Estelle things that secure her in order to reach her desire and be with her. Decorum: I Imagine Inez will have short hair, wear a classic jacket and white shirt and a tall skirt, I imagine her to be a hideous person and have a strict look in her eyes like the old school principles. Summary Adjective: Straightforward, Cruel and mean person, bad-mannered and alert.

Estelle:
Desire: Estelle’s desire was to please herself and her ego. She was trying to grab the attention of both Garcin and Inez during the whole play as she wanted to be the center of attention the whole time. Will: Estelle was a very beautiful woman and she knows how much her beauty can make others fall for her, so she used her beauty as a weapon to reach her goal and attract both Inez and Garcin. Moral Stance: She believes that she is an innocent lady who reached hell by mistake; she denies the fact that she’s a murderer; and a liar and she believes all she wants she should have. Decorum: Estelle lived in a different society than the one of Inez and Garcin; she belonged to a rich class society. So because of that I imagine her to be wearing a fancy expensive colorful dress with black or white heels and a very beautiful classic hairstyle. Summary Adjective: Careless, Selfish, Overconfident, Needy woman.
