And that is the absurdness of life.

He’s expecting others to be outraged. Then a few seconds later, he shoots the dead body four times more. View all 14 comments.

By failing to take a “positive” step on his own behalf, he effectively collaborated in and achieved his own mortality. Do we live because there might be a slight chance of immortality?

I’d highly recommend it to anyone. I agree that Meursault found some sort of solitude in losing hope, in alhert final indifference.

And just like the Oort can occasionally spit a chunk of sh!

It was very peculiar. Defending Yourself You would normally expect the defendant to assert their innocence or plead not guilty in the criminal justice system cue Law and Order theme song. I expected that in the end even though I knew it had no chance of happening. I particularly liked the man who kept falling behind in the march to the cemetery and would take short cuts.

Rather, like its fruits, its savor is a mixture of the acid and the sweet, the sranac of its second Eden have the tartness of experience. I fucking hate pimps. The same issues are probably at the heart of life, whether or not you stanac in a god.

Perhaps because of the shadow on his face, he seemed to be grinning at sttranac. He refuses to help his lawyer, denies the existence of god, has no belief in Jesus and shows no remorse at all.

The trial which is based more on his conduct during funeral of his mother rather than the act of murder, the xlbert room gradually becomes symbolism of justice based on values considered akin to human beings. Sembra questo il dubbio che Camus vuole insinuarci. This seems perfectly reasonable to me. He could have “got off”, if he had taken a positive step on his own behalf.


Stranac : Albert Kami :

Mersault remembers he has the pimp’s gun he took to prevent violence, and he shoots him. Rieux of La Peste The Plague, who tirelessly attends the plague-stricken citizens of Oran, enacts the revolt against a world of the absurd and of injustice, and confirms Camus’s words: As Meursault realises there is indeed no higher value to his or any human life and that happiness has nothing to do with this revelation, he rejects illusory hopes and intends to make the best of the days left to him.

In the end, this book is one that raises many more questions than it answers, but in true philosophical fashion, they are really questions without answers. I told her it didn’t mean anything but that I didn’t think so. Maman used to say that you can always find something to be happy about. What or perhaps who is an Outsider? They show again when he agrees to write a letter for a friend so that th A short review because there are so many other good reviews of this classic.

View all 25 comments. While an interesting question, the book raises so many other philosophical questions beyond this. This is a man not unsatisfied with life but feeling on the outside of it, moving through the world as he sees fit, and being denied life by men with a God-like arrogance for believing their word and opinions are firm law when really they are as meaningless and insignificant as any other creature.

Or whe his violent pimp of a neighbour wants him to compose a letter to his mistress that is meant to result in extreme nastiness towards her but backfireshe will act. Responsibility This doesn’t mean that life is meaningless and everybody else should live their lives in despair. The world’s Meursaults are each a stranger to society and they’re met with disbelieving eyes, even if they’re honest.


Is it possible things are simply ‘made up’ Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. This is viewed as servitude, not as victory. For the last thirty years I have studiously avoided reading this book. We live in-spite of everything.

I would not be surprised if Albert Camus read this prose poem by Charles Baudelaire: But that was because she wasn’t used to it. He just kills the guy.

Secondly, the very glaring message of indifference rather fires back against Camus’s message of non-conformity. The world of part one only whispers through the bars. Camus says that once we become conscious of our absurd life, we should embrace it and should continue to explore and search for meaning of life.

Ultimately, this is why “The Stranger” and Existentialism are so confronting to Christianity and Western Civilisation. They look as if they belong to the same species, and yet they hate each other. Life is short and we should just get on with it. The Arab flashes a knife. The whole story is a deliberate exercise in absurdity; and while the plot is very simple, and the characters are seemingly one dimensional, it all works together to create a great philosophical work.
