Bree, Germaine, Ed.
One of a series of works aimed at presenting contemporary critical opinion on major authors, this collection includes essays by Germaine Bree, Nicola Chairmonte, Serge Doubrovsky, Justin O'Brien, Wilfrid Sheed, Roger Quilliot, Thomas L. Hanna, Bernard C. Murchland, Henri Peyre, S. Beynon John, Rachel Bespaloff, Jean-Paul Sartre, Robert Champigny, Gaetan Picon, and Henry Popkin dealing with the biography and literary work of Albert Camus. Designed for use by both literary critics and secondary and college teachers of English, this work would also be of value to undergraduate and graduate students of literature. The essays deal with such topics as Camus and the Christian faith, Sartre vs. Camus, Camus the pagan, the ethics of Camus, ethics and aesthetics in "The Stranger," images and symbols in Camus, Camus as dramatist, and notes on "The Plague." A chronology of important dates in Camus' life, a brief set of biographical notes on the contributors to this collection, and a bibliography of works on Camus in both English and French complete the volume.
