    Hi Linkin, In Albert Camus novel, The Stranger, Meursault represents an existentialist character. Most may believe him to be immoral, and in some cases they are almost correct. Contrary to that belief, just because Meursault is an emotionless silhouette of a man doesn t mean he is immoral or evil. One cannot condemn him for being this way because he is simply misunderstood. Meursault does not make moral or immoral decisions, he is just completely indifferent to the matter. Readers are able to sympathize with this character because society condemns him and he is thought of as an evil person due to his lack of emotion. He was unable to experience love and he missed out on some of the finer feelings in life Camus shows Meursault as a person that does not show any signs of faith, love, life or emotion. Camus shows us that Meusault doesn t really believe in love. He is completely numb to the feeling. Albert clearly portrays this in Meursault s relationship with Marie. Marie asked Meursault if he loved her and he replied that love didn t mean anything and he probably didn t either. Read the complete essay here:

    Camus returned to France in 1942 and a year later began working for the clandestine newspaper Combat , the journalistic arm and voice of the French Resistance movement. During this period, while contending with recurrent bouts of tuberculosis, he also published The Myth of Sisyphus , his philosophical anatomy of suicide and the absurd, and joined Gallimard Publishing as an editor, a position he held until his death.

    Upon hearing of Camus’s death, Sartre wrote a moving eulogy in the France-Observateur , saluting his former friend and political adversary not only for his distinguished contributions to French literature but especially for the heroic moral courage and “stubborn humanism” which he brought to bear against the “massive and deformed events of the day.”

    The following entry presents criticism of Camus''''''''''''''''s short story “L''''''''''''''''hôte” (“The Guest”), which was published in the short-story collection L''''''''''''''''exil et le royaume ( Exile and the Kingdom ) in 1957.

    “L''''''''''''''''hôte” (“The Guest”) is regarded as Camus''''''''''''''''s best-known work of short fiction. One of the six stories comprising L''''''''''''''''exil et le royaume (1957; Exile and the Kingdom ), “The Guest” chronicles the moral conflict of Daru, a schoolteacher assigned to guard and transport an Arab prisoner. Critics assert that the story reflects Camus''''''''''''''''s interest in the themes of colonialism, alienation, and the tension between justice and freedom.

    Albert Camus was born on November 7, 1913, in Mondavi, French Algeria. Camus became known for his political journalism, novels and essays during the 1940s. His best-known works, including The Stranger (1942) and The Plague (1947), are exemplars of absurdism. Camus won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957 and died on January 4, 1960, in Burgundy, France.

    Notice that Meursault does not have any connections and he really doesn t try to make them. The closest connection he should have is that with his mother, but she is noted to be dead and he is clearly not moved by this death. The idea of the stranger lies in this isolation. The book pushes you to see how isolated each individual really is within their own thoughts and concepts. Other people are not able to hear your thoughts or know your feelings unless you choose to share them and they choose to recognize your meaningfulness into their own thoughts and existence. Essentially, each person is a stranger to another unless connections are recognized. As for Meursault, he only knows what he does and doesn t know. If you asked him about anything outside of himself, he couldn t answer and doesn t care. This is shown through the dog and his owner. This isolation is a fundamental aspect of the human condition. We all exist in this isolation and, without our own effort and need for companionship, we will continue to be isolated, and essentially strangers amongst strangers.

    There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy. All the rest -- whether or not the world has three dimensions, whether the mind has nine or twelve categories -- comes afterward. These are games; one must first answer.

    The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.
