He was taken as a prisoner in 1940 and released after nine months, at which he returned to Paris and teaching. He produced two plays: The Flies and No Exit, the former was produced in Paris during the German occupation, the later was the first to be performed in Paris after the liberation. From then on, Sartre gave up teaching and devoted all his time to writing.
