December 9, He wrote an essay against capital punishment in collaboration with Arthur Koestler , the writer, intellectual and founder of the League Against Capital Punishment. He was consistent in his call for non-aggression in Algeria. The plaque reads: "From the General Council of the Yonne Department, in homage to the writer Albert Camus whose remains lay in vigil at the Villeblevin town hall on the night of 4 to 5 January He identified with the Pieds-Noirs such as his own parents and defended the French government's actions against the revolt.
He argued that the Algerian uprising was an integral part of the 'new Arab imperialism' led by Egypt and an 'anti-Western' offensive orchestrated by Russia to 'encircle Europe' and 'isolate the United States'. During the war he advocated a civil truce that would spare the civilians, which was rejected by both sides, who regarded it as foolish.
Behind the scenes, he began to work for imprisoned Algerians who faced the death penalty. In , he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature "for his important literary production, which with clear-sighted earnestness illuminates the problems of the human conscience in our times".
When he spoke to students at the University of Stockholm , he defended his apparent inactivity in the Algerian question; he stated that he was worried about what might happen to his mother, who still lived in Algeria.
This led to further ostracism by French left-wing intellectuals. Camus remained active and ambitious until the end of his life. Financed by the money he received with his Nobel Prize, he adapted and directed for the stage Dostoyesvsky's Demons. The play opened in January at the Antoine Theatre in Paris. It was a critical success as well as an artistic and technical tour de force: 33 actors, 4 hours long, 7 sets, 24 scenes.
Camus put the painter and set decorator Mayo , who had already illustrated several of Camus' novels The Stranger - Ed. For example, Sartre recognizes the absurdity of individual experience, while Kierkegaard explains that the absurdity of certain religious truths prevent us from reaching God rationally.
Camus regretted the continued reference to himself as a "philosopher of the absurd". To distinguish his ideas, scholars sometimes refer to the Paradox of the Absurd, when referring to "Camus' Absurd".
His early thoughts appeared in his first collection of essays, L'Envers et l'endroit Betwixt and Between in Absurd themes were expressed with more sophistication in his second collection of essays, Noces Nuptials , in In these essays Camus reflects on the experience of the Absurd. He also wrote a play about Caligula , a Roman Emperor, pursuing an absurd logic.
The play was not performed until The turning point in Camus's attitude to the Absurd occurs in a collection of four letters to an anonymous German friend, written between July and July Ideas on the absurd Camus presents the reader with dualisms such as happiness and sadness, dark and light, life and death, etc. He emphasizes the fact that happiness is fleeting and that the human condition is one of mortality; for Camus, this is cause for a greater appreciation for life and happiness.
In Le Mythe, dualism becomes a paradox: we value our own lives in spite of our mortality and in spite of the universe's silence. While we can live with a dualism I can accept periods of unhappiness, because I know I will also experience happiness to come , we cannot live with the paradox I think my life is of great importance, but I also think it is meaningless. In Le Mythe, Camus investigates our experience of the Absurd and asks how we live with it.
Our life must have meaning for us to value it. If we accept that life has no meaning and therefore no value, should we kill ourselves? Rabindranath Tagore. The Little Prince. Philip K. Edward Stratemeyer.
