Albert Camus is one of the iconic figures of twentieth-century French literature, one of France's most widely read modern literary authors and one of the youngest winners of the Nobel Prize for Literature. As the author of L'Etranger and the architect of the notion of 'the Absurd' in the 1940s, he shot to prominence in France and beyond. His work nevertheless attracted hostility as well as acclaim and he was increasingly drawn into bitter political controversies, especially the issue of France's place and role in the country of his birth, Algeria. Most recently, postcolonial studies have identified in his writings a set of preoccupations ripe for revisitation. Situating Camus in his cultural and historical context, this 2007 Companion explores his best-selling novels, his ambiguous engagement with philosophy, his theatre, his increasingly high-profile work as a journalist and his reflection on ethical and political questions that continue to concern readers today.

Talk about The Cambridge Companion to Camus (Cambridge Companions to Literature)


Kazigrel
This is an important and by no means uncritical collection of essays. Like so many other critics, it neglects Camus' collection of stories, Exile and the Kingdom, which ought to be considered as a single work as well as a collection of marvelous individual stories. Lovers of Camus the artist will find much to enjoy quarreling with, but also much to learn from.

I was surprised by how little marginalia this collection inspired. It definitely covers the full range of Camus' writing (including, contrary to a previous reviewer, Exile and the Kingdom) and it offers a deep bibliography of criticism in French. Eventually, however, the relentless attacks - some fair, most not - grow wearisome and fail to hide the dearth of original analysis. In the very Introduction, Edward Hughes not only accuses Camus of not understanding the link between the Nazi occupation of Europe and the French occupation of Algeria - something Camus precisely warned readers of Combat to consider as they celebrated post-occupation freedom while reinstalling colonial rule - he further uses Camus' membership in the communist party in 1937 to justify reading a speech he gave about Mediterranean culture as demanding French colonial rule , when in fact Camus broke with the communist party in Algeria when it turned its back on the indigenous population. Camus was no saint and he deserves a great deal of criticism for his writing and his politics. I just think it's a shame that the Cambridge Companion is so unerringly negative and, ultimately, biased.
