Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on The book is simply written and a rather uick read but the depth Camus manages to convey through this simplicity is astounding 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 While an interesting uestion the book raises so many other philosophical uestions beyond this What I found the most interesting of these is what truly defines humanity or makes someone human During Meursault s trial he is constantly accused of not showing remorse and therefore as being cold and inhuman He is most definitely human though just rather detached This raises the uestion of whether one should be expected to exhibit certain characteristics in certain situations to keep their humanity Also it raises the uestion of whether much of our emotion is created by ourselves or the expectations of others to exhibit certain emotions in a given sitatuion The book is also an indictment on people s efforts to dictate other people s lives We are constantly told what is right and as a means to justify our own sense of what it means to be human We often impose these characteristics upon others expecting them to fulfill similar traits and characteristics as they have been already imposed on us It is in a way a self justification of our actions as right or humanly Constantly Meursault is being told he must live andor act a certain way whether it be by the judge his lawyer or the priest Once he doesn t conform to these measures he is marginalized and called inhuman this is an attempt on the part of the others to rationalize their own ways of life and understandings If they manage to declare him inhuman it allows them to call themselves human and justify their own means of livingIn the end this book is one that raises many uestions than it answers but in true philosophical fashion they are really uestions without answers

The absurd First published in English in now in a new translation by Matthew Ward 579 L etramger The Outsider The Stranger Albert CamusThe Stranger is a 1942 novel by French author Albert Camus Its theme and outlook are often cited as examples of Camus philosophy of the absurd and existentialism Part 1 Meursault learns of the death of his mother who has been living in a retirement home At her funeral he expresses none of the expected emotions of grief When asked if he wishes to view the body he declines and instead smokes and drinks coffee in front of the coffin Rather than expressing his feelings he comments to the reader only about the aged attendees at the funeral It takes place on an unbearably hot day Part 2 Meursault is now incarcerated and explains his arrest time in prison and forthcoming trial His general detachment makes living in prison tolerable especially after he gets used to the idea of being restricted and unable to have sex with Marie He passes the time sleeping or mentally listing the objects he owned in his apartment At the trial the prosecuting attorney portrays Meursault s uietness and passivity as demonstrating guilt and a lack of remorse The prosecutor tells the jury about Meursault s inability or unwillingness to cry at his mother s funeral and the murder He pushes Meursault to tell the truth but the man resists Later on his own Meursault tells the reader that he simply was never able to feel any remorse or personal emotions for any of his actions in life The dramatic prosecutor denounces Meursault claiming that he must be a soul less monster incapable of remorse and thus deserves to die for his crime 1977 1344 147 1345 141 1345 148 1362 132 1366 155 1382 142 9789644531101 1386 171 9789643059149 1388 128 9789649971599 1388 112 9789643635633 1390 88 9786005816617 1392 134 9789641720690 1393 176 9786001760990 27051399

    Albert Camus’ 1942 classic Here are the opening lines “Mother died today Or maybe yesterday; I can’t be sure The telegram from the Home says YOUR MOTHER PASSED AWAY FUNERAL TOMORROW DEEP SYMPATHY” A telegram not a personal phone call or someone on staff from the old people’s home actually making the hour trip in person to inform her

    A short review because there are so many other good reviews of this classic When I first read this eons ago I assumed “the stranger” was the Arab man that the main character kills on the beach It’s set in Algeria Not so Meursault the main character is a man without feelings and one incapable of feeling remorse Those deficiencies show
