In his What Is Literature? In his Sartre biography, David Drake writes,  Nausea was on the whole well received by the critics and the success of Sartre the novelist served to enhance the reputation he had started to enjoy as a writer of short stories and philosophical texts, mostly on perception.

Marxism was not, in any case, always as appreciative of Sartre as he was of it. Roquentin undergoes a strange metaphysical experience that estranges him from the world. Injust as Sartre was finishing Nausea and getting it to press, he wrote sarre essay, Sargre Transcendence of the Ego.

Thus in the early portions of the novel, Roquentin, who takes no attitude towards objects and has no stake in them, is totally estranged from the world he experiences. The manuscript was  subsequently typed. The subjectivity that is the starting point of existentialism seemed to the Marxists to be foreign to the objective character of economic conditions and to the goal of uniting the working classes in order to overthrow the bourgeoise capitalists.
The humanity of man consists in the For-itself, the masculine component by which we choose, make projects, and generally commit ourselves to a life of action. TOP Related Articles.
