I think a problem a lot of people have with this book is that they fail to look beyond the whole “what is the meaning of life” message. A political philosophy rooted in elation would albert kami stranac to accept belief in a second Adam, the recreation of the entire order, from religion to the simplest domestic rituals.

I liked his strangeness! Fictional novel where some man shoots someone completely innocent. But he is vulnerable to suggestion and goes along with stranad anyone suggests to him if it isn’t any skin off his teeth. Ultimately, he “enjoyed” his life while he had it, he didn’t care enough to prolong it and he accepted the inevitability of his own death.

Throughout the apbert absurd life I’d lived, a dark wind had been rising toward me from somewhere deep in my future, across years that were still to come, and as it passed, this wind leveled whatever was offered to me at the time, in years no more real than the ones I was living. Preview — The Jami by Albert Camus. Trivia About The Stranger. What I found the most interesting of these is “what truly defines humanity or makes someone human?

Ward’s new American translation is wonderful and I think captures a certain something that Gilbert’s more British and more interpretive version missed.


For instance, Meursault works. He killed a man and then shot his corpse four times for good measure. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Sembra questo il dubbio che Camus vuole insinuarci. Secondly, the very glaring message of indifference rather fires back against Camus’s message of non-conformity. But he also wants to engage with people clearly and openly. Luchino Visconti curava scrupolosamente ogni singolo dettaglio d’arredo e costume.

Does it matter who we marry or if we marry? How else, without religion, can he expiate his sin? Not long after the death of his mother, Our Hero is chilling on the beach when some Arabs come around looking to start sh!

It set off the trigger. Each time I noticed how condensed everything was it occurred to me that somehow the literati had spent all this time adoring the published equivalent of a commercial. He’s not a greedy or angry person. As odd though probably unsurprising, given the nature of my reviews as it is to say, I found a certain kinship with Meursault. Albert Camus was a representative of non-metropolitan French literature.

I’d agree to that. He is a man without feelings and one incapable of feeling remorse. Our protagonist, Meursault, is pretty apathetic to anyone else’s feelings and only cares about his own comfort and happiness.

Perhaps that is why Camus denied this was an existentialist book. When he looks at the world his descriptions of a plain Sunday kamu are almost like a beautiful impressionist painting. Meursault’s everyday life is boring – as is everyone’s – and Camus captures this well without losing his readers’ interest, which I think is quite a feat.

He likes swimming and women. A person who thinks that littering is good is better than a person who doesn’t care if he litters. Isn’t it awfully presumptuous to impose our sense of “normal” on a stranger?
