    About "Albert Camus"

      • Albert Camus

        Albert Camus 1913 1960 was a representative of non metropolitan French literature His origin in Algeria and his experiences there in the thirties were dominating influences in his thought and work Of semi proletarian parents, early attached to intellectual circles of strongly revolutionary tendencies, with a deep interest in philosophy only chance prevented him from pursuing a university career in that field , he came to France at the age of twenty five The man and the times met Camus joined the resistance movement during the occupation and after the liberation was a columnist for the newspaper Combat But his journalistic activities had been chiefly a response to the demands of the time in 1947 Camus retired from political journalism and, besides writing his fiction and essays, was very active in the theatre as producer and playwright e.g Caligula, 1944 He also adapted plays by Calderon, Lope de Vega, Dino Buzzati, and Faulkner s Requiem for a Nun His love for the theatre may be traced back to his membership in L Equipe, an Algerian theatre group, whose collective creation R volte dans les Asturies 1934 was banned for political reasons.The essay Le Mythe de Sisyphe The Myth of Sisyphus , 1942, expounds Camus s notion of the absurd and of its acceptance with the total absence of hope, which has nothing to do with despair, a continual refusal, which must not be confused with renouncement and a conscious dissatisfaction Meursault, central character of L tranger The Stranger , 1942, illustrates much of this essay man as the nauseated victim of the absurd orthodoxy of habit, later when the young killer faces execution tempted by despair, hope, and salvation Dr Rieux of La Peste The Plague , 1947, who tirelessly attends the plague stricken citizens of Oran, enacts the revolt against a world of the absurd and of injustice, and confirms Camus s words We refuse to despair of mankind Without having the unreasonable ambition to save men, we still want to serve them Other well known works of Camus are La Chute The Fall , 1956, and L Exil et le royaume Exile and the Kingdom , 1957 His austere search for moral order found its aesthetic correlative in the classicism of his art He was a stylist of great purity and intense concentration and rationality.


    1. Basically an autobiography by Camus. The manuscript was found in the car when Camus died in a car crash in 1960, when he was 57, and just 3 years after he won the Nobel Prize. It’s clearly a draft with a lot of footnotes and other notes that that show a writer at work. (Change names; don’t use the real names; develop; illegible; add this; take out that.) Obviously it could use editing, but it’s a good book as is. In an editor’s note we’re told the manuscript was not published until 199 [...]

    2. This book was not what I expected. Due to the philosophical, melancholy nature of the first two Camus books I’ve read, (The Stranger and The Plague), I expected this book to be more academic, but it was far from it; it’s a more personal book, nostalgic, full of feelings and memories.This book is considered to be an autobiographical novel, and its unedited manuscript was found in the car wreckage in which Camus was killed. Even for an unedited piece of work, it is simply a masterpiece. It was [...]

    3. Who knew I would be reading Camus' last novel as though it was his first? In this world of the passed away French-Algiers, the present and past are blurred, as a man recalls his childhood, and the voice of the third-person narrator is so close, it might as well be first-person. This harrowing account of a fatherless boy living in poverty is so pure that it's perfect in its stimulation. How can an author who grew so popular for his structural peculiarity in The Stranger, bring us such a completel [...]

    4. آنان که عشق برمی انگیزند, حتی وقتی سقوط میکنند, پادشاهان و حمکت وجود جهانند. آلبر کاموو کامو عشق بر می انگیزد, عشقی که با این خوانش برای من به ستایش رسید"آدم اول" کتابی که در بین خوانندگان ایرانی مهجور مانده است و من متاسفم که دیر خواندمش.کتابی که به اشتباه با کتابهای دیگر کامو م [...]

    5. بچه به خودی خود هیچ نیست، پدر و مادر هستند که او را نشان می‌دهند. با وجود آن‌هاست که حد خود را معین می‌کند، و حدش در نظر مردم معین می‌شود. به واسطه آن‌هاست که احساس می‌کند به راستی درباره‌اش قضاوت می‌شود، آن هم قضاوتی که نمی‌توان از آن استیناف خواست، و همین قضاوت مردم بود ک [...]

    6. Adds an unexpected dimension to Camus' philosophy: that it was written by a regular guy whose daily worries, ponderings, misgivings and regrets found him just as much as ours find us. That's of course a major point of his philosophy, that inherent flaws in the machine make regrets, worries, mistakes and absolute communion between people impossible, but gone in this work is the darkly ironic facade. This time we find reassurance in that Camus is as he was basically trying to convince us he was an [...]

    7. It is not often that I struggle to find words; yet, this is one of those times. Reading this unfinished manuscript has left me without words to express how I feel about it. It's not a novel - it's a glimpse into the mind of a great man as he looks back on what was and what was not. It is a rare glimpse into his likes, dislikes, memories, relationships, upbringing, social settings This 'novel' is full of inconsistencies, missing words, and notes. Nevertheless, such is life - impure, fragmented, c [...]

    8. توصیفهای کتاب حرف نداره مخصوصن قسمتهایی که بازارهای الجزیره رو به تصویر میکشه، کاملن میتونی خودتو توی فضاش قرار بدی گرمای طاقت‌فرسای الجزیره رو روی پوستت حس کنی بوی شیرینی‌های عربی به مشامت برسه ترس «ژاک» و دوستاش، که ناشی از شیطنتهاشونه و حتا احساس عجز و ناتوانی‌‌یی که گ [...]

    9. This begins my Camus’ Centenary year (he was born in 1913) reading list. I plan on reading even more widely than I have of his oeuvre this year, and revisiting some of his works, particularly if there’s a new translation I have not read. On the 7th of November, there will be a celebration at my house.Now, reviewing a rescued-partial-first-draft manuscript turned into a book is a different kind of thing to other books. When you hover over the fifth star in , it says ‘it was amazing’, so I [...]

    10. أغبط من عاشوا في النصف الاول من القرن الماضي الي ستيناته فترة التقلبات و الثورات وبزوغ الرؤى والافكار أغبطهم أيضا لغنى الفترة بكثير من المبدعين الذين أتسمت أبدعاتهم بالثورة و النضج وتفرد كل منهم بفلسفة خاصه ورؤية تستحق الاحترام ربما كان ألبير كامو من أعظم أفرازات هذا العصر [...]

    11. این داستان نیمه‌کاره آخرین اثر آلبر کامو است که مرگ، به نویسنده فرصت نداده آن را به فرجام برساند. ظاهراً این اثر زندگی‌نامه‌ی خودنوشت نویسنده نیز هست و بر روایت‌های آن، رنگی از واقعیت نمایان است. ماجراهای این داستان دربرگیرنده‌ی زندگی شخصیت اصلی آن،‌ ژاک کورمری، است از اب [...]

    12. این کتاب آخرین اثر آلبر کاموست که بدلیل مرگش ناتمام موند ولی خواهرش به هرصورتی که بود اونو چاپ کرد بعد مرگ کامو،و اینکه در واقع این کتاب خود زندگی نویسندس از بچگی تا سن چهل سالگی که دوران کودکی و نوجوانیش رو خودش نوشته و از اونجا به بعد خواهرش اونو تکمیل کرده از طریق دست نوشته ه [...]

    13. Some of my favorite quotes:-“There are people who vindicate the world, who help others live just by their presence” (35).-“There is a terrible emptiness in me, an indifference that hurts” (36).-“…dependence and necessity remain, and that is not far from resembling love” (222).-“her son, endlessly, watched her in the shadows with a lump in his throat, staring at her thin bent back, filled with an obscure anxiety in the presence of adversity he could not understand” (228).-“She [...]

    14. این کتاب رو بعد از مرگ آلبر کامو و توسط همسرش و خانواده و دوساتانش جمع آوری شده و بر اساس یادداشتها ی اون نوشته شده مطمن هستم اگر کامو خودش زنده بود نمیگذاشت این کتاب به این شکل چاپ بشه یعنی درهم وبرهم و ناخوشایندحالا میفهمم چرا نویسنده ها قبل از خودکشی دست نوشته های خودشون رو م [...]

    15. La mère d'Albert CamusL'auteur a été fauché par une mort accidentelle avant de pouvoir finir cet ouvrage. Malgré cela, de larges passages sont déjà constitués, et permettent de profiter de ce qui annonçait déjà un grand livre. Il s'agit principalement d'un récit autobiographique, prenant place dans l'Algérie coloniale du début du XXème siècle. Ce récit déborde d'amour; pour ses proches, pour l'instituteur qui l'a pris sous aile et lui a permis de poursuivre ses études; pour ce [...]

    16. Reading this latest "The First Man" (1995) "published thirty-five years after its discovery amid the wreckage of the car accident that killed its author" (back cover) is of course a bit disappointing due to its evidently unfinished story. Moreover, some of its generously-inserted footnotes have not fully clarified, I think, its readers to appreciate more, rather they seem to distract them into vaguely understandable information, for instance:Three days ago they had finished over the Atlantic,, h [...]

    17. Catherine Camus explains in the introduction that had her father lived to see the novel he was working on published, it would not be nearly as personal and revealing as this unfinished manuscript. I am of course not in any way glad that Camus died in the tragic way he did, but I honestly can't help but feel that it would have been a tremendous loss had this not been published.I have read most of his novels, and while I like them all very much, I also suspect that if Camus lived until he was 100 [...]

    18. I studied Camus in school, like all French schoolchildren. Apart from chosen excerpts that always pepper young readers' school anthologies, you tackle Camus in high school when you get to Existentialism in your history of French literature curriculum. Well, I remember clearly that I had liked Camus the best I am not a fan of the Existentialist Posse, that is for sure but Camus is different somehow, not sure if it the Algerian sun, the very modest origins he is just so human, so vulnerable no ivo [...]

    19. 'El primer hombre' es la novela inacabada que Canys estaba escribiendo cuando murió en un accidente de coche a los 46 años. Se trata también de su novela más autobiográfica, porque habla ni más ni menos de un niño francés que vive en Argel y que está avergonzado de la pobreza y la ignorancia de su familia, una familia formada por una madre medio sorda y ausente, una abuela autoritaria y un tío sordo, y sin padre porque murió en la primera guerra mundial cuando hacía poco que Camus ha [...]

    20. Camus, 1957 yılında Nobel Edebiyat Ödülü'nü aldıktan sonra bu romanı yazmaya başlamış. Yazarın 1960 yılında beklenmedik şekilde ölümü üzerine roman tamamlanamamış. Roman taslağı, kaza yerinde çamurlar içinde bulunmuş; Camus, bu taslağı yanında taşıyormuş. Ölümünden 34 yıl sonra, 1994 yılında, yazarın kızı Catherine Camus tarafından yayımlanmış. İyi ki de yayımlanmış diyorum. Camus, bu romanın başyapıtı olacağını umuyormuş ama bitmemiş olm [...]

    21. OK, the hubby has never heard me say, "One of the best I've ever read," but he heard it when I finished this. Camus' other books that I recently read, The Stranger and The Fall, were both good, worthy of the five star rating I gave them, but in comparison, this deserves ten stars. It is about a man (it is autobiographical, so it's about Camus himself) who returns to the Algerian neighborhood in which he grew up to see his mom, visit the grave of the father he never knew, and try to learn more ab [...]

    22. I thought I had read all of Albert Camus's novels--turns out I was right and I was wrong. The First Man is an unfinished manuscript Camus was working on at the time of his death. It's fairly long for a book by Camus, but based on his notes, it would have been much longer in the final version.Here we have a bildungsroman that is told from Jacques's perspective as a boy and, intermittently, as a 40-year-old man. The novel is written in great detail, all the peculiarities of being French in Algeria [...]

    23. This is Camus's unfinished autobiographical novel that he was working on at his untimely death in a car accident in France in 1960. (Supposedly the manuscript was found in his briefcase at the scene.) It's the story of young Jacques Cormery, who never knew his father - he died in World War I when Jacques was an infant - being raised in extreme poverty in Algeria by his illiterate grandmother and illiterate, nearly deaf-mute mother (she has a vocabulary of 400 words). It's a moving, poignant, lyr [...]

    24. Read this long ago, but it is a favorite. A very different Camus, very warm and human. His final work, it makes one all the sadder that this great writer did not live longer.

    25. Albert Camus was a forty-six-year-old Nobel laureate in literature when he died in an automobile crash on January 4, 1960. Found amid the debris was an unfinished manuscript, one which remained unpublished until it appeared in France as Le Premier Homme in 1994.Why the delay? In a compelling introduction to the American edition, Catherine Camus reminds readers of the mood in France in 1960, when her father's moral stances—particularly his open criticism of Soviet totalitarianism and his advoca [...]

    26. This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn more about Camus and for anyone who enjoys his writing. The book was unfinished and in his daughter's introduction, reveals more of the writer than what typically appeared in a finished manuscript. Despite missing words, the writing is strong, centering on a few themes- Algeria, childhood, poverty and politics. Who else can write as succinctly and as empathetically as Camus (in first draft!), as in passages describing his family's outlook: ".ey [...]

    27. “Because,' Cormery went on, 'when I was very young, very foolish, and very much alone you paid attention to me and, without seeming to, you opened for me the door to everything I love in the world.” ― Albert Camus, The First Man

    28. "آدم اول" کامو سرگذشت پسرکی به نام "ژاک" است که در ‌ در دو بخش روایت می‌شود. داستان از تولد او آغاز می‌شود. سپس او برای یافتن جزئیاتی از زندگی پدرش که در جنگ کشته شده است به محل دفنش می‌رود. پس از آن، کامو خواننده را به دوران کودکی ژاک می‌برد و چگونگی بزرگ شدن او را با توصیفاتی دق [...]
