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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life without hope. #plumreview Camus offers up a blueprint into how one can continue to live a life in a universe indifferent to any and all of humanity's needs. Bereft of meaning and devoid of hope, life, through The Myth of Sysyphus, is strangely uplifting in a way that only Camus seems to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Camus' Absurd Revolt In an extraordinary burst of power and ingenuity, Camus delivers the definitive text on Absurdist philosophy. Using the myth of Sisyphus as the premier example of an absurd lifestyle, Camus energetically attacks the despair and indifference of his contemporaries. He justifies the necessity of action and restores dignity to a philosophy of life that provides no underlying answer to questions of existence.
