L’Étranger Review ✓ 106 Absurd First published in English in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward. If every few words of praise I ve seen for The Stranger over my lifetime materialized into small chunks of rock in space there d be enough sht to conjure up the Oort Cloud Much like this distant collection of debris bordering the outer solar system I can t really comprehend the acclaim heaped on this story but luckily like the Cloud it s usually out of sight out of mind and has absolutely no discernable current influence on my life And just like the Oort can occasionally spit a chunk of sht at the earth and devastate all life upon it so too can I hearread some lip service paid to The Stranger resulting in my transition to Freak Out Mode resulting in me slapping someone in the face usually someone I have to deal with again at some point in time if only in court Personally I don t see what the big deal is Armed with a 100 word vocabulary a meager 123 pages to bore one with and a character who simply doesn t seem to give much of a damn Camus somehow shook the world of literature with this inane garbage I haven t sat down to conduct a thorough analysis but using some reasonable guesstimation I will say that the average sentence in this book is about eight words long I m not asking that every sentence in a book run the length of a page but the end result when employed by Camus was that either a twelve year old or some sort of retarded robot wrote this Cue robot voice It struck me as strange The sentences were so short It was very peculiar This could be read very fast I began to read this on the train on my in to work I finished it on my way back home Who the hell writes like that More importantly who the hell reads a book like that and suspects therein lay some complexity Each time I noticed how condensed everything was it occurred to me that somehow the literati had spent all this time adoring the published euivalent of a commercial Here s a snapshot of the dude we re supposed to give a hoot about He doesn t readily assimilate to or accept the conventional s everyone else seems accustomed to He s not overly concerned but he seemingly knows there s some kind of disconnect He s also not out to go f ck with the system for lack of anything better to do or in some attempt to make a statement He s pretty emotionless he shows some genuine concern for himself at times but even those close to him really aren t too significant in his grand picture His testicles are extremely small and sterile and he fondles them often Not long after the death of his mother Our Hero is chilling on the beach when some Arabs come around looking to start sht with an acuaintance of his and after a small skirmish earlier in the day Our Man goes back down to the beach and shoots an Arab He gets arrested and pretty much just goes with the flow he rolls over and let s the prosecution have their way with his scrawny white ass The whole time he pretty much just thinks it s all pretty ridiculous and isn t too concerned with the proceedings I wasn t too concerned about the book More than anything I was just bored with it There was no build up there was no action there was no climax There was nothing funny nothing exciting nothing interesting and nothing to really take away from the book just the same words repeating over and over grouped in strings of seven or eight The longest sentence in the book was also the only thing which I found even remotely amusing Finally I realized that some of the old people were sucking at the insides of their cheeks and making these weird smacking noises That isn t particularly funny but compared to the rest of the book it was comedic gold The Stranger is some seriously weak shit I ve gotten enjoyment from looking a map of Kentucky

L’Étranger Review ✓ 106 Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on a. Albert Camus 1942 classic Here are the opening lines Mother died today Or maybe yesterday I can t be sure The telegram from the Home says YOUR MOTHER PASSED AWAY FUNERAL TOMORROW DEEP SYMPATHY A telegram not a personal phone call or someone on staff from the old people s home actually making the hour trip in person to inform her only son but a terse three line businesslike telegram cold insensitive almost callous a telling sign of the mechanized timesThen first person narrator Monsieur Meursault has to deal with his manager so he can attend his mother s funeral I have fixed up with my employer for two days leave obviously under the circumstances he couldn t refuse Still I had an idea he looked annoyed and I said without thinking Sorry sir but it s not my fault you know Ha Camus subtle irony a statement on how death is an irritating inconvenience in the urbanized modern world of shipping offices where time is money and the highest value is utility and efficiencyThen when Meursault sits beside the Home s keeper in the room with his mother s coffin we read The glare of the white walls was making my eyes smart and I asked him if he couldn t turn off one of the lamps Nothing doing he said They d arranged the lights like that either one had them all on or none at all Most revealing This is the only time at the Home Meursault actually asks for something And true to form as archetypal keeper the answer is standard binary that is all or nothing black or white on or off certainly not even considering engaging in a creative solution on behalf of Meursault who after all is the son Reading this section about the Home s officious keeper and his world of expected behaviors and standardized routinized procedures reminds me of the doorkeeper in Kafka s tale Before the LawThe next day the day of the funeral procession Meursault observes The sky was already a blaze of light and the air stoking up rapidly I felt the first waves of heat lapping my back and my dark suit made things worse I couldn t imagine why we waited so long before getting under way This is one of a number of his remarks on his sensations and feelings and for good reason Meursault s way of being in the world is primarily on the level of sensation and feelingBack in the city and after taking a swim with Marie a girlfriend he ran into at the local swimming pool there s a clip of dialogue where Meursault relates While we were drying ourselves on the edge of the swimming pool she said I m browner than you I asked her if she d come to the movies with me that evening She laughed again and said Yes if I d take her to the comedy everybody was talking about the one with Fernandel in it Meursault does acuiesce to her reuest Big mistake Turns out according to society s unwritten rules taking Marie to Fernandel s farcical comedy on the very next evening after his mother s funeral was a colossal no no completely unacceptable behaviorWe as given laser sharp glimpses of various facets of our enigmatic first person narrator as he moves through his everyday routine in the following days and evenings routine that is until the unforgettable scene with the Arab on the beach one of the most famous scenes in all of modern literature Here are Camus words via Stuart Gilbert s marvelous translationThe Arab didn t move After all there was still some distance between us Perhaps because of the shadow on his face he seemed to be grinning at meI waited The heat was beginning to scorch my cheeks beads of sweat were gathered in my eyebrows It was just the same sort of heat as my mother s funeral and I had the same disagreeable sensations especially in my forehead where all the veins seemed to be bursting through the skin I couldn t stand it an longer and took another step forward I knew it was a fool thing to do I wouldn t get out of the sun by moving on a yard or so But I took that step just one step forward And then the Arab drew his knife and held it up toward me athwart the sunlightA shaft of light shot upward from the steel and I felt as if a long thin blade transfixed my forehead At the same moment all the sweat that had accumulated in my eyebrows splashed down on my eyelids covering them with a warm film of of moisture Beneath a veil of brine and tears my eyes were blinded I was conscious only of the cymbals of the sun clashing on my skull and less distinctly of the keen blade of light flashing up from the knife scarring my eyelashes and gouging into my eyeballsThen everything began to reel before my eyes a fiery gust came from the sea while the sky cracked in two from end to end and a great sheet of flame poured down through the rift Every nerve in my body was a steel spring and my grip closed on the revolver The trigger gave and the smooth underbelly of the butt jogged my palmThis novel poses such provocative uestions I wouldn t want to spoil any of those uestions with answers semi original or otherwise Rather my suggestion is to read and reread this slim novel as carefully and attentively as possibleOne last reflection one of my favorite scenes is where Meursault enters the courtroom and makes the following observation Just then I noticed that almost all the people in the courtroom were greeting each other exchanging remarks and forming groups behaving in fact as in a club where the company of others of one s own tastes and standing makes one feel at ease That no doubt explained the odd impression I had of being de trop here a sort of gate crasher Such a comment on the dynamics of the modern world a man is about to go on trial with his life in the balance and he is the one who feels out of placeHow many times in life have you felt out of place entering a room Have you ever considered yourself a stranger to those around you Perhaps our modern world can be seen as The Stranger thus making each and every one of us strangers Love or hate it Camus short novel speaks to our conditionOne final reflection I would not be surprised if Albert Camus read this prose poem by Charles Baudelaire THE STRANGERTell me enigmatic man whom do you love best Your father your mother your sister or your brotherI have neither father

L’Étranger Review ✓ 106 N Algerian beach Camus explored what he termed the nakedness of man faced with the. If You ExistThe Stranger dramatises the issues at the heart of existentialismThe same issues are probably at the heart of life whether or not you believe in a godBeing JudgedIt s interesting that there has been a crime and now Meursault is being judgedThe judgement is symbolic not only of the justice system but of God s judgement of humanityDefending YourselfYou would normally expect the defendant to assert their innocence or plead not guilty in the criminal justice system cue Law and Order theme songBoth options reuire the defendant to take a positive step only they differ in degreeTo assert your innocence is to positively state that I didn t do itA plea of not guilty would place an onus on the prosecutor to prove the defendant s guilt although there are significant differences between the French system of justice and that of the UKUSACanadaAustraliaetcTo plead not guilty can mean a number of thingsIt could mean that I did actually do it but you the prosecutor have to prove to the Judge or Court that I did itIt could mean that I did actually do it but I have a defence or justification that means it is not a punishable crime eg self defence or provocationAsking ForgivenessThis process is partly analogous to the situation when a Christian dies and meets their GodIf they have sinned you would expect them to ask forgivenessHaving been forgiven they would expect to go to HeavenNot Defending YourselfOne of the dilemmas of The Stranger is that morally and legally there might be issues that Meursault could put to the Judge that would excuse his action and allow the Judge to find him not guiltyHe could then go freeHe could have argued that his action was self defence or the result of provocationHe could have got off if he had taken a positive step on his own behalf However he fails to take the stepIf he was a Christian ie if he believed in God he might have wanted to prolong his life on EarthHis life would have had some meaning and he would have wanted of itSimilarly if he was a Christian he would have been motivated to seek eternal life in HeavenSo he would have taken the positive stepWhat s the PointInstead against all expectation he doesn t defend himself We are left to wonder whyWe have to assume that Meursault effectively asked the uestions of himself What is the point Why should I botherAnd we have to assume that he answered the uestions There is no pointAchieving Your Own MortalityThere was no point in prolonging his life and not believing in Heaven there was no point in seeking eternal lifeHe had lived a life however long or short however good or bad however satisfying or unsatisfying and it didn t really matter that his life might come to an endThe point is that sooner or later all life must come to an endBy failing to take a positive step on his own behalf he effectively collaborated in and achieved his own mortality He existed while he was alive he would have ceased to exist when he was executedIf he wasn t executed he would have died sooner or laterUltimately he enjoyed his life while he had it he didn t care enough to prolong it and he accepted the inevitability of his own deathIs Despair the ExplanationThis doesn t necessarily mean that he embraced despair as a way of life or deathIn a way he accepted responsibility for his own actions during life and he accepted responsibility for the inevitability of his own death as wellUltimately this is why The Stranger and Existentialism are so confronting to Christianity and Western Civilisation It makes us ask the uestion what is the point and it permits an answer that there is no pointResponsibilityThis doesn t mean that life is meaningless and everybody else should live their lives in despair uite the oppositeWe should inject our own meaning into our own lives We are responsible for our own fulfilmentLife is short and we should just get on with it Or as a friend of mine says everybody is responsible for their own orgasmSuch is life
