May 28th Book Discussion: "The Stranger" by Albert Camus
This novel has impact. The author, Albert Camus, was the inventor of the term "absurdism." Absurdism states that the universe has no inherent meaning and is filled with chaos. Camus believed that we are born without a purpose or rules. Yet, he never states that man can't find a purpose or create his/her own. In The Stranger, you (the reader) decides if the narrator of The Stranger has any control.
