    It makes you question yourself! Are you a modern version of Sisyphus?

    This essay is great! It makes you question yourself! I thought that it was well written with some amazing points! It is interest to see that some of the same social and economic problems that Sisyphus delt with still plagues us today. You're think by now, that some of these problems would have been solved. This essay was an eye opener, & true learning experience!

    Camus at His Best!

    This short collection is an excellent way to introduce yourself to one of the most interesting writers and thinkers of the mid-20th century. Camus introduces his thoughts into the 'absurd' with both style and enlightenment. This work is a good foundation before reading other great works by Camus, such as The Stranger or The Fall.

    Between Kafka and Borges there comes Camus

    Between Kafka and Borges there enters Camus.And Camus has a voice and a life which are at once more moderate and earth- bound than the other two great modern masters of the parable and myth.If the figure chosen as emblem and title is the absurd Sisyphus rolling once again a rock up a hill which he knows will perpetually roll down again , there is nonetheless consolation in the beauty which Camus makes of the effort. Life is meaningful despite its being absurd, Camus seems to say, and all who read this collection will feel enriched at hearing one of the great humanistic voices of the twentieth century in all its love for life.
