Camus, Albert, Ward, Matthew


Among the most widely read novels of the century, this study of individual alienation in a bourgeois society is still remarkable for its resonant tone of understatement. Matthew Ward's new translation comes close to the directness of Camus' style.Since it was first published in English in 1946, Albert Camus's first novel has had a profound impact on millions of American readers. Through this story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd".Now, in an illuminating new American translation, extraordinary for its exactitude and clarity, the original intent of The Stranger is made more immediate. This haunting novel has been given a new life for generations to come.Camus, Albert is the author of 'The Stranger: A New Translation by Matthew Ward' with ISBN 9781587240324 and ISBN 1587240327.
