"The Stranger" by Albert Camus delves into the existentialist and absurdist themes prevalent in French literature, set against the backdrop of colonial Algeria. Through the protagonist, Meursault, Camus explores the depths of alienation, portraying a man detached from societal norms and the conventional moral code. Meursault embodies indifference, facing life with a sense of nihilism and an absence of empathy towards others. His existence is marked by isolation, reflecting the existentialist idea of the absurdity and meaninglessness of life. The narrative takes a philosophical turn as Meursault confronts death and the inevitability of mortality, leading to a dramatic courtroom trial where his lack of emotional response is scrutinized. The absence of a traditional moral compass and the disregard for societal expectations propel the story forward, culminating in a powerful examination of human existence. Set in colonial Algeria, the novel intertwines themes of crime and existential philosophy, creating a compelling portrayal of a man navigating a world devoid of inherent meaning. "The Stranger" stands as a testament to Camus' exploration of the human condition and remains a cornerstone of existentialist literature.
