for Oran

The Stranger

Albert Camus
Meursault is a hero of the absurd. He neither feels obliged to any metaphysical powers nor to god. He endures the senselessness as a happy Sysiphos. Until his indifference provokes his death sentence.

The Plague

Albert Camus
A haunting tale of human resilience in the face of unrelieved horror, Camus' novel about a bubonic plague ravaging the people of Oran is a classic of twentieth-century literature.

The Meursault Investigation

Kamel Daoud
Kamel Daoud reopens the secondary murder case in Camus' The Stranger and gives the murdered a name. A postcolonial Arab appropriation of the existentialist masterpiece.
