...Albert Camus made the tenets of the philosophy of Absurdism work in the context of the narrative. Absurdism, in this sense, is not contained to logic but more of the failure of a man to find the meaning of life despite his efforts of seeking it. This could be the reason of Meursault's indifference towards anything. The character of Meursault does not really belong to the typical qualifications of a protagonist; the readers might have seen him as annoying rather than 'neutral' as what the character tries to project in the story.
