Simple yet there’s so much more to it, that will allow you to wonder all the complex mess of the human brain. #______________________________________________________________________ “The Stranger( The Outsider) has been called an “existential” or “nihilistic” novel.
Existentialism is a philosophy professing the belief that the universe is indifferent to mankind and that most of life is futile, absurd, and incomprehensible. Existentialism sees the individual as existing in a meaningless universe where events are beyond his or her control.
Nihilism is not unlike existentialism, but nihilism goes further: it rejects all positive values, and its followers believe in nothing. There are elements of both of these philosophies in The Stranger (The Outsider). Camus himself was said to believe that individuals are seeking beliefs or value systems, but the world offers them none, forcing human beings into an absurdist or meaningless life.
The Stranger (The Outsider) has been a successful novel since its publication. Its appeal to readers throughout the world has been enduring, and it is now considered a literary classic.” >> All references come from the #VintageBooks edition of The Stranger (The Outsider) , copyright 1988 & #PenguinModernClassic >> www.prestwickhouse.com #sources#bookstagram
