The Myth of Sisyphus: And Other Essays

Camus, Albert

One of the most influential works of this century, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays is a crucial exposition of existential thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan, and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide" the question of living or not living in a universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Albert Camus brilliantly posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existience, and the possibility of a life lived with dignity and authenticity. Review: "Camus's scupulous logic and aphoristic style create a kind of poetry of thought." The Nation Review: "[Camus] is surely the most gifted, artistically, of the writers who emerged as Paris Mandarins after the war." Atlantic
