Review

This is a very scholarly work, with almost half the book given over to notes, index, and extensive bibliography. It is, therefore, dry reading. Melançon concentrates on such aspects of Camus’s thought as The Absurd; The Human Condition; Revolt against the Metaphysical and Historical Condition; and The Ethics of Revolt, Conduct without God. A student of literature may find this very useful; the rest of us would probably find more enjoyment in Camus’s own works.
