In fair condition.

The Myth of Sisyphusis one of the most profound philosophical statements written this century. It is a discussion of the central idea of absurdity that Camus was to develop in his novel The Outsider. Here Camus poses the fundamental question: Is life worth living? If existence has ceased to retain significance when confronted with the fragmented reality of the human condition, what then can keep us from suicide? Camus movingly argues for an acceptance of reality that encompasses revolt, passion and, above all, liberty. This volume contains several other essays, including lyrical evocations of the sunlit cities of Algiers and Oran. 'Probably no European writer of his time left so deep a mark on the imagination.' Conor Cruise O'Brien
