Description of this Electronic Book

Often marginalised on the sidelines of both philosophy and literature, the works of Albert Camus have, in recent years, undergone a renaissance. While most readers in either discipline claim Camus and his works to be 'theirs', the scholars presented in this volume tend to see him and his works in both philosophy and literature.This volume is a collection of critical essays by an international menagerie of Camus experts who, despite their interpretive differences, see Camus through both lenses. For them, he is a novelist/essayist who embodies a philosophy that was never fully developed due to his brief life. The essays here examine Camus's first published novel, The Stranger, from a variety of critical and theoretical perspectives, each drawing on the author's knowledge to present the first known critical examination in English. As such, this volume will shed new light on previous scholarship.

Author's Bio

Peter Francev is a Lecturer in Philosophy and English in southern California. Currently, he is President of the Albert Camus Society US and editor of the Journal of Camus Studies. When he is not writing on Camus, he can be found researching his PhD thesis on Lord Byron or loving the company of his children Katherine and Michael, his poodles Oliver, Mandy and Daphne, and his wife Jennifer, without whom of this would be possible.
