The myth of Sisyphus, and other essays by Albert Camus( Book )
676 editions published between 1000 and 2014 in 29 languages and held by 6,658 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 )
471 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 24 languages and held by 6,032 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 plague ; The fall ; Exile and the kingdom ; and selected essays by Albert Camus( Book )
1,110 editions published between 1947 and 2014 in 42 languages and held by 5,323 libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: From one of the most brilliant and influential thinkers of the twentieth century-two novels, six short stories, and a pair of essays in a single volume. In both his essays and his fiction, Albert Camus (1913-1960) deployed his lyric eloquence in defense against despair, providing an affirmation of the brave assertion of humanity in the face of a universe devoid of order or meaning. The Plague-written in 1947 and still profoundly relevant-is a riveting tale of horror, survival, and resilience in the face of a devastating epidemic. The Fall (1956), which takes the form of an astonishing confession by a French lawyer in a seedy Amsterdam bar, is a haunting parable of modern conscience in the face of evil. The six stories of Exile and the Kingdom (1957) represent Camus at the height of his narrative powers, masterfully depicting his characters-from a renegade missionary to an adulterous wife-at decisive moments of revelation. Set beside their fictional counterparts, Camus's famous essays "The Myth of Sisyphus" and "Reflections on the Guillotine" are all the more powerful and philosophically daring, confirming his towering place in twentieth-century thought
The first man by Albert Camus( Book )
223 editions published between 1972 and 2014 in 31 languages and held by 3,822 libraries worldwide
A fictionalized autobiography, covering his youth in Algeria. It is filled with details of the white working class to which he belonged and there is the undercurrent of a boy's search for a father figure, his own killed in World War I. He describes the intervention of a school teacher who obtained for him a scholarship, first step on the road to the 1957 Nobel Prize for literature
The stranger by Albert Camus( Book )
67 editions published between 1942 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 3,658 libraries worldwide
The Stranger by Albert Camus is a short novel about an ordinary little man living quietly in Algiers. Life begins to stalk hi quietly and slowly, but inexorably. The pace quickens until the little man commits a pointless murder - and reaches its climax after his trial. The Stranger presents an indelible picture of a human being helpless in life's grip
The stranger by Albert Camus( Book )
70 editions published between 1946 and 2007 in 10 languages and held by 3,409 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
Resistance, rebellion, and death by Albert Camus( Book )
56 editions published between 1960 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 3,340 libraries worldwide
Essays selected by the author from his Actuelles and other works
A happy death by Albert Camus( Book )
184 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 24 languages and held by 3,242 libraries worldwide
In his first novel, A Happy Death, written when he was in his early twenties and retrieved from his private papers following his death in I960, Albert Camus laid the foundation for The Stranger, focusing in both works on an Algerian clerk who kills a man in cold blood. But he also revealed himself to an extent that he never would in his later fiction. For if A Happy Death is the study of a rule-bound being shattering the fetters of his existence, it is also a remarkably candid portrait of its author as a young man. As the novel follows the protagonist, Patrice Mersault, to his victim's house -- and then, fleeing, in a journey that takes him through stages of exile, hedonism, privation, and death -it gives us a glimpse into the imagination of one of the great writers of the twentieth century. For here is the young Camus himself, in love with the sea and sun, enraptured by women yet disdainful of romantic love, and already formulating the philosophy of action and moral responsibility that would make him central to the thought of our time
Exile and the kingdom by Albert Camus( Book )
50 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,920 libraries worldwide
These six stories, written at the height of Camus' artistic powers, all depict people at decisive, revelatory moments in their lives. Translated by Justin O'Brien
Le malentendu, suivi de Caligula by Albert Camus( Book )
443 editions published between 1941 and 2014 in 23 languages and held by 2,498 libraries worldwide
La pièce la plus jouée de Camus. Une tragédie politique, sur la corruption du pouvoir absolu, mais aussi une tragédie privée, celle d'un homme que sa liberté entraîne vers le crime et la mort, et un drame métaphysique, celui de la condition humaine, telle que Camus la voyait à cette époque : absurde
The possessed : a play in three parts by Albert Camus( Book )
123 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 2,401 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. --wikipedia.com

Edited by Philip Thody, translated by Ellen Conroy Kennedy. "Here now, for the first time in a complete English translation, we have Camus' three little volumes of essays, plus a selection of his critical comments on literature and his own place in it. As might be expected, the main interest of these writings is that they illuminate new facets of his usual subject matter."--The New York Times Book Review " ... a new single work for American readers that stands among the very finest."--The Nation

24 editions published between 1967 and 1993 in 8 languages and held by 1,414 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

Algerian chronicles by Albert Camus( Book )
67 editions published between 1939 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,282 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."--Book Jacket
Caligula & three other plays by Albert Camus( Book )
26 editions published between 1958 and 1976 in English and held by 934 libraries worldwide
CALIGULA, an attractive prince, upon the death of his sister and mistress, tries, through murder and the systematic perversion of all values, to practice a liberty that he will eventually discover not to be the right one. THE MISUNDERSTANDING is about a son who expects to be recognized without having to declare his name and who is killed by his mother and his sister as the result of the misunderstanding. STATE OF SIEGE is an allegorical drama about liberty. THE JUST ASSASSINS is base on historical events in Moscow after WII
