Albert Camus, 1913-1960. Camus was a French novelist, essayist, and dramatist, regarded as one of the finest philosophical writers of modern France. Camus's first published novel, The Stranger, and his essay on which it is based, The Myth of Sisyphus, reveal the influence of existentialism on his thought. Of Camus's plays that develop existentialist themes, Caligula is one of the best known. His other works include the novel The Plague and two works published posthumously A Happy Death and The First Man, an autobiographical novel narrated in the third person. In 1957 Albert Camus was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature.

existentialism and Albert Camus

born Nov. 7, 1913, Mondovi, Algeria
died Jan. 4, 1960, near Sens, France

At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the softness of the sky, the outline of these trees at this very minute lose the illusory meaning with which we had clothed them, henceforth more remote than a lost paradise . . . that denseness and that strangeness of the world is absurd. --Albert Camus

Albert Camus, b. Mondovi, Algeria, Nov. 7, 1913, earned a worldwide reputation as a novelist and essayist and won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1957. Through his writings, and in some measure against his will, he became the leading moral voice of his generation during the 1950s. At the height of his fame, Camus died in an automobile accident near Sens, France, on Jan. 4, 1960.

Although born in extreme poverty, Camus attended the lycee and university in Algiers, where he developed an abiding interest in sports and the theater. His university career was cut short by a severe attack of tuberculosis, an illness from which he suffered periodically throughout his life.
