'My mother died today. Or maybe yesterday, I don't know.'

In The Outsider (1942), his classic existentialist novel, Camus explores the alienation of an individual who refuses to conform to social norms. Meursault, his anti-hero, will not lie. When his mother dies, he refuses to show his emotions simply to satisfy the expectations of others. And when he commits a random act of violence on a sun-drenched beach near Algiers, his lack of remorse compounds his guilt in the eyes of society and the law. Yet he is as much a victim as a criminal.

Albert Camus' portrayal of a man confronting the absurd, and revolting against the injustice of society, depicts the paradox of man's joy in life when faced with the 'tender indifference' of the world.

Sandra Smith's translation, based on close listening to a recording of Camus reading his work aloud on French radio in 1954, sensitively renders the subtleties and dream-like atmosphere of L'Étranger.

Albert Camus (1913-1960), French novelist, essayist and playwright, is one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century. His most famous works include The Myth of Sisyphus (1942), The Plague (1947), The Just (1949), The Rebel (1951) and The Fall (1956). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957, and his last novel, The First Man, unfinished at the time of his death, appeared in print for the first time in 1994, and was published in English soon after by Hamish Hamilton.

Sandra Smith was born and raised in New York City and is a Fellow of Robinson College, University of Cambridge, where she teaches French Literature and Language. She has won the French American Foundation Florence Gould Foundation Translation Prize, as well as the PEN Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize.Đặt sách ngoại văn The Outsider (Modern Classics) Mua sách ngoại văn The Outsider (Modern Classics) Đọc sách ngoại văn The Outsider (Modern Classics) Sách tiếng Anh The Outsider (Modern Classics) Tải về The Outsider (Modern Classics) Review sách The Outsider (Modern Classics) Review phim The Outsider (Modern Classics) Đánh giá The Outsider (Modern Classics) Mua The Outsider (Modern Classics) giá rẻ The Outsider (Modern Classics) Đánh giá The Outsider (Modern Classics) Tác giả The Outsider (Modern Classics) Tiki The Outsider (Modern Classics) Fahasa The Outsider (Modern Classics) Shopee The Outsider (Modern Classics) Amazon The Outsider (Modern Classics) Download PDF The Outsider (Modern Classics) Download epub The Outsider (Modern Classics) Ebook The Outsider (Modern Classics) Tiếng Việt The Outsider (Modern Classics) Sách ngoại văn The Outsider (Modern Classics) Đọc sách Albert Camus Mua sách Albert Camus Review sách Albert Camus

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.
