Description

Camus' landmark novel traces the aftermath of a shocking crime and the man whose fate is sealed with one rash and foolhardy act. ""The Stranger"" presents readers with a new kind of protagonist, a man unable to transcend the tedium and inherent absurdity of everyday existence in a world indifferent to the struggles and strivings of its human denizens. This addition to the ""Bloom's Guides"" series features an annotated bibliography and a listing of works by the author for further reading.
