The valet eventually brings in another woman, Estelle, and says no one else will arrive. As Estelle begins to laugh hysterically at the idea of them being dead and trapped together forever, the others join in a prolonged fit of laughter before Garcin finally concludes, "Eh bien, continuons Shalini grows up in Bangalore with a successful businessman for a father and a manipulative depressive for a mother. Military law[ edit ] Acts of cowardice have long been punishable by military law, which defines a wide range of cowardly offenses, including desertion in face of the enemy and surrendering to the enemy against orders.

      Finally, Khan tells Amir that the reason he has called Amir to Pakistan is to ask him to rescue Hassan's son, Sohrab, from an orphanage in Kabul. After graduating from high school, Amir takes classes at San Jose State University to develop his writing skills. It is because of Inez, he claims, that he must stay.

Sanaubar is Ali's wife and the mother of Hassan. Though they claim at first to want to be alone, the characters need each other; the play is essentially a No room for cowardice book of their thwarted desires, of their inability to control their own image. Amir eventually manages to take him back to the United States.

The orphanage director tells Amir how to find the official, and Farid secures an appointment at his home by claiming to have "personal business" with him.

Hassan and his wife were killed after Hassan refused to allow the Taliban to confiscate Baba and Amir's house in Kabul. Estelle expresses her desire to be with Garcin, and Garcin reciprocates. To make up for her neglect, she provides a grandmother figure for Sohrab, Hassan's son. Shalini grows up in Bangalore with a successful businessman for a father and a manipulative depressive for a mother.

Both boys are motherless: Amir's mother died in childbirth, while Hassan's mother, Sanaubar, simply abandoned him and Ali. She deduces that they are to be one another's torturers. It has no room for cowardice or even weakness.

While the sight of Menelaus causes Paris to flee, Hector, much more devoted to the ideal of heroic honor, criticizes him for the disgrace that he has brought upon not only himself but also the entire Trojan army.

Inez is attracted to Estelle and repeatedly tries to win the pretty Parisian over. Garcin, Inez, and Estelle discuss how and when they died, but they initially refuse to confess their crimes. He is described as a " sociopath " by Amir.

The valet warns, however, that the bell does not always work. His father was shot. In other words, the relationship between the characters and the world of the living is perpetually off-balance.

Valour and Cowardice

To her, the affair is merely an insignificant flingbut her lover becomes emotionally attached to her and she bears him a child. Prayer beads around my wrist, a curly Om tattooed on my shoulder, and a No room for cowardice book of photos in which I smiled next to a pair of gaunt village women, to whom I would later casually refer, at dinner parties or in bed with new lovers I wished to impress?

On the other hand, Baba is often critical of Amir, considering him weak and lacking in courage, even threatening to physically punish him when he complains about Hassan. Unable to live with each other and unable to live without each other, the characters are trapped not just physically, but emotionally and morally.

Throughout the play she tries to get at Garcin, seeking to define herself as a woman in relation to a man. The three eventually realize that although there are no physical torments and no actual torturer in hell, they have been put together to torment each other.
