Reflecting the profound influence he continues to exert on popular consciousness, Camus examines the complete body of works of French author and philosopher Albert Camus, providing a comprehensive analysis of Camus’ most important works—most notably The Myth of Sisyphus, The Stranger, The Fall, The Plague, and The Rebel—within the framework of his basic ethical orientation.

  • Makes Camus’ concerns clear in terms that will resonate with contemporary readers
  • Reveals the unity and integrity of Camus’ writings and political activities
  • Discusses Camus’ ongoing relevance by showing how he prefigures many postmodern positions in philosophy, literature, and politics
