THE STRANGER By Albert Camus. Translated by Matthew Ward. New York: Random House, Inc. , 1988.

123 pp. $9. 00. Trade Paper. Imagine your mother dying and you would never be able to see her again. Most people would be devastated, but the main character in The Stanger could care less.

This character, Meursault, may seem unusual to us, but to Albert Camus, the author, he is the everyday man. To the everyday person this novel is very disturbing. Albert Camus s first novel The Stranger is a story of an ordinary man, Meursault, whose mother dies and weeks later he murders a man on an Algerian Beach. Meursault is sent to jail and goes through many trials to see his sentence. Meursault and his mistress go out many times and perform various sexual activities.

A minute later she asked me if I loved her. I told her it didnt mean anything but that I didnt think so (Camus 35). That evening Marie came by to me and asked me if I wanted to marry her. I said it didnt make a difference to me and that we could if she wanted to (Camus 41). THE STRANGER By Albert Camus. Translated by Matthew Ward.
