The myth of Sisyphus, and other essays by Albert Camus( Book )

694 editions published between 1000 and 2014 in 30 languages and held by 6,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential works of this century, this is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide: the question of living or not living in an absurd universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Camus posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity.--From publisher description
The rebel : an essay on man in revolt by Albert Camus( Book )

487 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 24 languages and held by 6,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution. For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. As old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times

The stranger by Albert Camus( Book )

52 editions published between 1946 and 2007 in 10 languages and held by 3,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A young Algerian, Meursault, afflicted with a sort of aimless inertia, becomes embroiled in the petty intrigues of a local pimp and, somewhat inexplicably, ends up killing a man. Once he's imprisoned and eventually brought to trial, his crime, it becomes apparent, is not so much the arguably defensible murder he has committed as it is his deficient character. In the story of an ordinary man who unwittingly gets drawn into a senseless murder on a sun-drenched Algerian beach, Camus was exploring what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd". Now in a new American translation, the classic has been given new life for generations to come

The possessed : a play in three parts by Albert Camus( Book )

128 editions published between 1939 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 2,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Possessed (a.k.a., The Devil or Demons) is an extremely political novel of late 19th century Russian political and social chaos... The novel takes place in a provincial Russian setting, primarily on the estates of Stepan Trofimovich Verkhovensky and Varvara Stavrogina. Stepan Trofimovich's son, Pyotr Verkhovensky, is an aspiring revolutionary conspirator who attempts to organize a knot of revolutionaries in the area. He considers Varvara Stavrogina's son, Nikolai, central to his plot because he thinks Nikolai Stavrogin has no sympathy for mankind whatsoever. Verkhovensky gathers conspirators like the philosophizing Shigalyov, suicidal Kirillov, and the former military man Virginsky, and he schemes to solidify their loyalty to him and each other by murdering Ivan Shatov, a fellow conspirator. Verkhovensky plans to have Kirillov, who was committed to killing himself, take credit for the murder in his suicide note. Kirillov complies and Verkhovensky murders Shatov, but his scheme falls apart. He escapes, but the remainder of his aspiring revolutionary crew is arrested. In the denouement of the novel, Nikolai Stavrogin kills himself, tortured by his own misdeeds.

The stranger by Albert Camus( Book )

22 editions published between 1967 and 1993 in 8 languages and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. The apparently amoral Meursault--who puts little stock in ideas like love and God--seems to be on trial less for his murderous actions, and more for what the authorities believe is his deficient character
L'envers et l'endroit by Albert Camus( Book )

171 editions published between 1937 and 2014 in 14 languages and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'envers et l'endroit est le premier livre d'Albert Camus. Il paraît à Alger en 1937. A la fin de sa vie, Camus verra dans cette œuvre de jeunesse la source secrète qui a alimenté ou aurait dû alimenter tout ce qu'il a écrit. L'envers et l'endroit livre l'expérience, déjà riche, d'un garçon de vingt-deux ans : le quartier algérois de Belcourt et le misérable foyer familial dominé par une terrible grand-mère ; un voyage aux Baléares, et Prague, où le jeune homme se retrouve "la mort dans l'âme" ; et surtout, ce thème essentiel : "l'admirable silence d'une mère et l'effort d'un homme pour retrouver une justice ou un amour qui équilibre ce silence". -- Back cover
Algerian chronicles by Albert Camus( Book )

76 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than fifty years after Algerian independence, Albert Camus's Algerian Chronicles appears here in English for the first time. Published in France in 1958, the same year the Algerian War brought about the collapse of the Fourth French Republic, it is one of Camus's most political works - an exploration of his commitments to Algeria. Dismissed or disdained at publication, today Algerian Chronicles, with its prescient analysis of the dead end of terrorism, enjoys a new life in Arthur Goldhammer's elegant translation. "Believe me when I tell you that Algeria is where I hurt at this moment, as others feel pain in their lungs." writes Camus, who was the most visible symbol of France's troubled relationship with Algeria. Gathered here are Camus's strongest statements on Algeria from the 1930s through the 1950s, revised and supplemented by the author for publication in book form. In her introduction, Alice Kaplan illuminates the dilemma faced by Camus: he was committed to the defense of those who suffered colonial injustices, yet was unable to support Algerian national sovereignty apart from France. An appendix of lesser-known texts that did not appear in the French edition complements the picture of a moralist who posed questions about violence and counter-violence, national identity, terrorism, and justice that continue to illuminate our contemporary world."--Back cover
