...Analysis of “The Stranger” by Albert Camus In general, human beings tend to be highly social creatures who are not only concerned about the wellbeing of their fellows but also for that of their own. Furthermore, it is human nature to have an interest in living according to the norms set by society. However, in Camus’ work, the main character is indifferent to all the things that go on around him and is instead interested only in his own self. The main character in “The Stranger” Meursault seems to be an incredibly selfish man who is only interested in himself. This creates a situation that...

...Stranger A Hero, Destructive for Human Society Introduction In Camus’ novel, “the Stranger”, the absurdity of the universe, in other words, the meaninglessness of life makes the hero, Meursault, destructive to himself as well as to human society. But though this meaninglessness of life is often held responsible for Meursault’s his indifference to social values and moral feelings, it can be asserted that it is, in fact, his lack of hope for life that lies in the heart of this meaninglessness. Apparently it may sound simple that since life is meaningless, Meursault does not have any hope for it. But a close analysis of the novel will rather reveal that the opposite of this conclusion...

...Stranger by 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.

It is defined as “a doctrine which makes human life possible and, in addition, declares that every truth and every action implies a human setting and a human subjectivity…existence precedes essence, or, if you prefer…subjectivity must be the starting point” (Sartre, cited in Daigle 10).

...Stranger? “Mother died today. Or maybe it was yesterday, I don’t know. I received a telegram from the rest home: MOTHER DECEASED. BURIAL TOMORROW. VERY TRULY YOURS. It doesn’t say anything. Maybe it was yesterday” (Camus, The Stranger, p.1, 1954). Albert Camus develops his theory of the absurd throughout this existential novel, which is based on his belief that there is no meaning or absolute truth in life. Throughout The Stranger, Meursault is clearly an unapologetic individual, who is unreflective, uncaring and moved only through sensory experiences (such as swimming at the beach, or having sex with Marie), which is used to reinforce Camus’ message that there are only relative...

This suggests that man must comprehend the forces that define nature and individual aspirations of integration. In other words, there should be an amicable balance for nature and man to attain harmony. According to the narrative by Albert Camus, I think Meursault is not guilty of murder. This is because he acts in self defense to defend his friend, Raymond. However, this does not mean he is not guilty of other crimes (Camus 184). For example, his decision to write a letter for Raymond’s girlfriend to achieve revenge is a crime that deserves... of the physical world...

This is what Camus refers to as absurd. According to Camus, people will never find what they are looking forward to finding in life in terms of meaning to it, order, or reasons to it.
