Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The Stranger is not merely one of the most widely read novels of the 20th century, but one of the books likely to outlive it. Written in 1946, Camus's compelling and troubling tale of a disaffected, apparently amoral young man has earned a durable popularity (and remains a staple of U.S. high school literature courses) in part because it reveals so vividly the anxieties of its time. Alienation, the fear of anonymity, spiritual doubt--all could have been given a purely modern inflection in the hands of a lesser talent than Camus, who won the Nobel Prize in 1957 and was noted for his existentialist aesthetic. The remarkable trick of The Stranger, however, is that it's not mired in period philosophy.

The plot is simple. 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. The trial's proceedings are absurd, a parsing of incidental trivialities--that Meursault, for instance, seemed unmoved by his own mother's death and then attended a comic movie the evening after her funeral are two ostensibly damning facts--so that the eventual sentence the jury issues is both ridiculous and inevitable.

Meursault remains a cipher nearly to the story's end--dispassionate, clinical, disengaged from his own emotions. "She wanted to know if I loved her," he says of his girlfriend. "I answered the same way I had the last time, that it didn't mean anything but that I probably didn't." There's a latent ominousness in such observations, a sense that devotion is nothing more than self-delusion. It's undoubtedly true that Meursault exhibits an extreme of resignation; however, his confrontation with "the gentle indifference of the world" remains as compelling as it was when Camus first recounted it. --Ben Guterson

Pressestimmen

The Stranger is a strikingly modern text and Matthew Ward’s translation will enable readers to appreciate why Camus’s stoical anti-hero and ­devious narrator remains one of the key expressions of a postwar Western malaise, and one of the cleverest exponents of a literature of ambiguity.” –from the Introduction by Peter Dunwoodie

Mehr über den Autor

Albert Camus wurde am 7. 11. 1913 bei Annaba (Algerien) als zweiter Sohn einer europäischen Einwandererfamilie geboren. Der Vater, ein Franzose, fiel 1914 im Krieg, die spanischstämmige Mutter musste die Kinder als Putzfrau ernähren und der dominanten Großmutter zur Erziehung überlassen. Camus wuchs in einem armen Stadtviertel Algiers auf. Dort besuchte er die Ecole primaire; 1924 konnte er als Stipendiat in das Lycée von Algier eintreten. 1930 Erkrankung an Lungentuberkulose. Nach dem Abitur Aufnahme eines Philosophiestudiums, das Camus durch Gelegenheitsarbeiten finanziert. Gleichzeitig erste schriftstellerische und künstlerische Versuche. 1934 erste Ehe, die 1940 geschieden wurde. 1938-1940 Arbeit als Journalist bei der progressiven Zeitung «Alger républicain» (später «Soir républicain»). Camus` Artikelfolge über das Elend der algerischen Landbevölkerung und das Verbot der Zeitung machten ihm eine weitere berufliche Betätigung in Algerien unmöglich. Daher 1940 Übersiedlung nach Frankreich. Mit seiner zweiten Frau, Francine Faure, kehrte er 1941 nach Algerien zurück, wo beide als Lehrer arbeiteten. 1942 Kuraufenthalt im französischen Bergland. Eine Anstellung als Lektor bei Gallimard und die Zugehörigkeit als Résistance - Camus übernahm 1944/45 die Leitung der Widerstandszeitung «Combat» - banden ihn zunehmend an Paris. Freundschaftliche Beziehungen zu Sartre und dessen existenzialistischem Kreis. 1946-1952 Reisen in die USA, nach Südamerika und mehrmals nach Algerien. An der mit Härte und Leidenschaft geführten Debatte um «Der Mensch in der Revolte» (1951) scheiterte die freundschaftliche Beziehung zu Sartre. 1958 begann er mit der Arbeit an dem erst 1994 postum veröffentlichten Roman «Der erste Mensch». Am 4. Januar 1960 verunglückte Camusbei einem Autounfall tödlich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen "The Stranger" 6. Juni 2000
Von asdf sdaf
Format:Taschenbuch
When I initially read this book, I was entirely confused and a bit disturbed at what I had just read. As I began to research the book and analyze the book, I began to understand it. The concepts are quite bizarre... but in the end pleasantly intriguing. After first reading the book, I really didn't understand Meursault's character and how all the events enhance the reader's understanding of his character. This book was read for a paper and my teacher told me that Meursault was dynamic. However, I didn't fully understand how until later. During the beginning of the story, Meursault takes a passive role in his life. The events in his life don't seem to be happening to him.... just to someone else or something. At some point during the trial, Meursault discovers that the events are truely happening to him. At this point, he decides to take an active role in his life. He chooses not to sit on the sidelines any longer. He also want to make useful all the time he has left. He doesn't want to waste a moment worrying about God or something else (like when he spent the whole day watching the people from his window). He wants to pack as much into the time he has left and forget about all the past problems he's had. He relates to Maman in that he wants to start over, with no problems or expectations. His life to come will be much more productive than the life he lead earlier. In most reviews of this book, this book has almost been an example of what not to do. I, however, have found comfort in this book in that I think it is an example of what TO do. You should live life as if you are not going to be here tomorrow because you never know what's coming next. You never know when that sun's going to shine just right!

2.0 von 5 Sternen The Stranger 3. Juni 2000
Von P. Elkes
Format:Taschenbuch
I thought that the book The Stranger was a book that could have been better. The book was not suspensful, and I really did not enjoy it. It had no climax, almost no plot, and the action was not built up at all. However, in this book, the author Albert Camus makes a few good points about our society. The book started with the death of the main character Meursault's mother. Meursault went to her funeral, which was at the nursing home in which she lived. He showed no signs of sorrow over his mother's death, and even fell asleep during her vigil. When Meursault returned home he concluded that "really, nothing in his life had changed." The next day Meursault went to his neighbor Raymond's house for dinner. Raymond was a pimp, although he told people that he was a "warehouse guard." Raymond explained to Meursault the problem that he was having with a girlfriend of his who he said "did him dirty." He asked Meursault to help him out with his problem, and when Meursault said yes, Raymond stated that he considered them pals. Meursault's life went on, with nothing eventful happening until Raymond invited Meursault and Marie, Raymond's girlfriend who was considering marriage between the couple, to his friend Masson's bungalow. Meursault accepted the invitation, and went to the bungalow. However, right before they left, Raymond informed Meursault of a group of Arabs that had been following him ever since he had tried to resolve the conflict with his ex-girlfriend. The Arabs followed them to the bungalow, and through a series of complications, Meursault ended up shooting and killing one of the Arabs. The rest of the book is about Meursault's time in jail, and his court hearing, in which he is sentenced to the guillotine, and his reaction afterwards. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

2.0 von 5 Sternen This is a book to think about 2. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
For a while in this book it appears that the Mr. Meursault is living a normal life with a girlfriend, a few friends, and everything else included in most people's daily life. When his friend asks him to get involved in a plot to get back at a girl that dumped him, his life takes a drastic turn. This is the only real part of the story that at all caught my attention. Up until this point, I had really struggled through the book. As the book goes on, Mr. Meursault is jailed for a crime and sentenced to death. This is the turning point in the book. Throughout the book, he tries to understand why people attempt to begin new lives. After his mother dies, Mr. Meursault learns she had become very close to one of the men in the nursing home where she was living. He also learns that the two had been in love and were supposedly engaged. He doesn't understand why anyone who is close to death would become involved in that way with another human being. At the end of the book, when he is in his jail cell, he discovers that just because you near the end of your life, it does not mean that you are dead yet and that you should approach everything as if you will live forever. Throughout the book, he argued with people about the existence of a God. When the chaplain comes to talk with him, he yells at him. The two argue about what God is and he goes off on the chaplain yelling that he believes there is no after life, so there is no need for God in his life. When the chaplain leaves Mr. Meursault is left to think about what he has said and done. He began to understand why his mother began a new life. Even as life dies, in a way it begins again.
From the first page, you are stunned at what is said by Mr. Meursault.
