The stranger by Albert Camus( Book )

1,777 editions published between 1942 and 2019 in 40 languages and held by 16,701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. In the story of an ordinary man who unwittingly gets drawn into a senseless murder on a sun-drenched Algerian beach, Camus was exploring what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd". Now in a new American translation, the classic has been given new life for generations to come

The rebel : an essay on man in revolt by Albert Camus( Book )

395 editions published between 1951 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 5,643 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By one of the most profoundly influential thinkers of our century, The Rebel is a classic essay on revolution. For Albert Camus, the urge to revolt is one of the "essential dimensions" of human nature, manifested in man's timeless Promethean struggle against the conditions of his existence, as well as the popular uprisings against established orders throughout history. And yet, with an eye toward the French Revolution and its regicides and deicides, he shows how inevitably the course of revolution leads to tyranny. As old regimes throughout the world collapse, The Rebel resonates as an ardent, eloquent, and supremely rational voice of conscience for our tumultuous times. Translated from the French by Anthony Bower

A fictionalized autobiography, covering his youth in Algeria.

The myth of Sisyphus, and other essays by Albert Camus( Book )

54 editions published between 1942 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 3,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most influential works of this century, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays is a crucial exposition of existentialist thought. Influenced by works such as Don Juan and the novels of Kafka, these essays begin with a meditation on suicide; the question of living or not living in a universe devoid of order or meaning. With lyric eloquence, Albert Camus brilliantly posits a way out of despair, reaffirming the value of personal existence, and the possibility of life lived with dignity and authenticity

A happy death by Albert Camus( Book )

104 editions published between 1971 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 3,036 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his first novel, A Happy Death, written when he was in his early twenties and retrieved from his private papers following his death in I960, Albert Camus laid the foundation for The Stranger, focusing in both works on an Algerian clerk who kills a man in cold blood. But he also revealed himself to an extent that he never would in his later fiction. For if A Happy Death is the study of a rule-bound being shattering the fetters of his existence, it is also a remarkably candid portrait of its author as a young man. As the novel follows the protagonist, Patrice Mersault, to his victim's house -- and then, fleeing, in a journey that takes him through stages of exile, hedonism, privation, and death -it gives us a glimpse into the imagination of one of the great writers of the twentieth century. For here is the young Camus himself, in love with the sea and sun, enraptured by women yet disdainful of romantic love, and already formulating the philosophy of action and moral responsibility that would make him central to the thought of our time
Caligula & three other plays by Albert Camus( Book )

205 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in 20 languages and held by 2,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caligula was born into an illustrious Roman family. His father was Germanicus, a hugely popular and talented general, who, before his early death, was seen as the natural heir of the reigning Augustus. Caligula was a fond nickname meaning "Little Boots" (his real name was Gaius), given to him by the soldiers in Germanicus' legions who loved to see the young boy in the camps dressed in a military uniform. When the cruel and unpopular Emperor Tiberius (who had succeeded Augustus) died, Caligula was swept into office on a wave of good will. But Caligula turned out to be the most insane Caesar of Rome. His evil deeds surpassed both Tiberius, who reigned immediately before him, or Nero, who ruled shortly after
Le mythe de Sisyphe by Albert Camus( Book )

345 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 2,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lyrical and critical essays by Albert Camus( Book )

20 editions published between 1967 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The literary output of Albert Camus was exceptionally concentrated and well organized, so that each part of it throws light on other parts....Here now, for the first time in a complete English translation, we have Camus' three little volumes of essays, plus a selection of his critical comments on literature and on his own place in it. As might be expected, the main interest of these writings is that they illuminate new facets of his usual subject matter.'-John Weightman, The New York Times Book Review
Les justes : pièce en cinq actes by Albert Camus( Book )

308 editions published between 1950 and 2017 in 11 languages and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Camus's The Just (Les Justes) is a five-act play based on the true story of a group of Russian revolutionaries who assassinated Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich in 1905. First produced in 1949, The Just is a significant, eerily resonant, moving, and highly theatrical work. With a humanist perspective, Camus delves into the hearts and minds of five idealists who each grapple with a heinous choice and ultimately commit murder, in the name of justice. Now, more than ever, the play provokes and reverberates with a troubling yet necessary line of inquiry. Do the ends justify the means? Is terrorism ever a viable choice? What is the true cost of resistance? What is the difference between a freedom fighter and a murderer? What The Just makes so compelling and haunting is the way Camus uses clearly drawn characters to tell such an intimate yet horrific story. He completely understands and sympathizes with his characters but never apologizes for their actions. And although it was written more than fifty years ago and set in another era, The Just feels entirely contemporary and vital. In this play, Camus attempts to understand what it would require to take violent action and assassinate someone in power yet somehow maintain a sense of justice and morality. Is this even possible? Bobby Theodore's fresh, modern translation enhances the contemporaneity of the play. With an introduction by director Frank Cox-O'Connell
Christian metaphysics and Neoplatonism by Albert Camus( )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 1,624 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Understanding the nature and achievement of that reorientation became the central task of Christian Metaphysics and Neoplatonism. Primarily known through its inclusion in a French omnibus edition, it has remained one of Camus' least-read works, yet it marks his first attempt to understand the relationship between Greek philosophy and Christianity as he charted the movement from the Gospels through Gnosticism and Plotinus to what he calls Augustine's "second revelation" of the Christian faith." "Ronald Srigley's translation of this seminal document helps illuminate these aspects of Camus' work. His freestanding English edition exposes readers to an important part of Camus' thought that is often overlooked by those concerned primarily with the book's literary value and supersedes the extant McBride translation by retaining a greater degree of literalness."--BOOK JACKET
Algerian chronicles by Albert Camus( )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"More than fifty years after Algerian independence, Albert Camus's Algerian Chronicles appears here in English for the first time. Published in France in 1958, the same year the Algerian War brought about the collapse of the Fourth French Republic, it is one of Camus's most political works - an exploration of his commitments to Algeria. Dismissed or disdained at publication, today Algerian Chronicles, with its prescient analysis of the dead end of terrorism, enjoys a new life in Arthur Goldhammer's elegant translation. "Believe me when I tell you that Algeria is where I hurt at this moment, as others feel pain in their lungs." writes Camus, who was the most visible symbol of France's troubled relationship with Algeria. Gathered here are Camus's strongest statements on Algeria from the 1930s through the 1950s, revised and supplemented by the author for publication in book form. In her introduction, Alice Kaplan illuminates the dilemma faced by Camus: he was committed to the defense of those who suffered colonial injustices, yet was unable to support Algerian national sovereignty apart from France. An appendix of lesser-known texts that did not appear in the French edition complements the picture of a moralist who posed questions about violence and counter-violence, national identity, terrorism, and justice that continue to illuminate our contemporary world."--Back cover
The possessed : a play in three parts by Albert Camus( Book )

33 editions published between 1959 and 2003 in 7 languages and held by 1,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Possessed (a.k.a., The Devil or Demons) is an extremely political novel of late 19th century Russian political and social chaos. The novel takes place in a provincial Russian setting, primarily on the estates of Stepan Trofimovich Verkhovensky and Varvara Stavrogina. Stepan Trofimovich's son, Pyotr Verkhovensky, is an aspiring revolutionary conspirator who attempts to organize a knot of revolutionaries in the area. He considers Varvara Stavrogina's son, Nikolai, central to his plot because he thinks Nikolai Stavrogin has no sympathy for mankind whatsoever. Verkhovensky gathers conspirators like the philosophizing Shigalyov, suicidal Kirillov, and the former military man Virginsky, and he schemes to solidify their loyalty to him and each other by murdering Ivan Shatov, a fellow conspirator. Verkhovensky plans to have Kirillov, who was committed to killing himself, take credit for the murder in his suicide note. Kirillov complies and Verkhovensky murders Shatov, but his scheme falls apart. He escapes, but the remainder of his aspiring revolutionary crew is arrested. In the denouement of the novel, Nikolai Stavrogin kills himself, tortured by his own misdeeds. --Wikipedia.com

109 editions published between 1937 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'envers et l'endroit est le premier livre d'Albert Camus. Il paraît à Alger en 1937. A la fin de sa vie, Camus verra dans cette oeuvre de jeunesse la source secrète qui a alimenté ou aurait dû alimenter tout ce qu'il a écrit. "L'envers et l'endroit" livre l'expérience, déjà riche, d'un garçon de vingt-deux ans: le quartier algérois de Belcourt et le misérable foyer familial dominé par une terrible grand-mère; un voyage aux Baléares, et Prague, où le jeune homme se retrouve "la mort dans l'âme"; et surtout, ce thème essentiel: "l'admirable silence d'une mère et l'effort d'un homme pour retrouver une justice ou un amour qui équilibre ce silence."
