Camus ( Mondovi , 7 November 1913 - Villeblevin , 4 January 1960 ) was a
philosopher , essayist , novelist and playwright French .
As some critics consider Camus difficult to categorize in a literary movement
called, there is no doubt that he draws the inspiration for his fiction from the
philosophical existential anxieties of society European Union between the two
wars . And it is on this basis that he deserves to be considered one of the
fathers of ' existentialism beside twentieth-century atheist Jean-Paul Sartre ,
in spite of the strong elements of contrast between the two, which must however
be seen from the ethical-political rather than philosophical . Both members of
the Resistance , which militated in Combat training, and the French Communist
Party , but soon Camus shows the incompatibility of his vision of the world with
Marxism orthodox left the party and approaches the anarchist movement .
It was the Nobel Prize for literature in 1957 (his speeches on the occasion of
the withdrawal of the award are collected in Discours de Suède published by
His work has always tended result to the study of perturbations of the human
soul in front of the ' existence . The search for a deep and genuine bond
between human beings is made impossible by ' absurd looming human existence.
The search for the inter-human relationship that continually escapes tremendous
effort that is similar to Sisyphus takes to return to the same point. The human
connection seems to finally be nothing else that become aware of the absurd and
try to overcome it in solidarity. But the absurdity of certain events to sever
the bond itself, such as the war and the division of thought in general, it is
incumbent on men as an evil deity who is at the same time of slaves and rebels,
victims and executioners.
The sole purpose of living and acting, for Camus, seems to express itself
dialectically out experiential intimacy, in fighting the social injustice, as
well as expressions of little humanity, such as the death penalty . "If nature
condemns to death the man, at least the man does not do it, "he used to say.
