Scientific Study from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: none, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (Department of English), course: English Literature, ENG-423, language: English, abstract: This paper explores Camus' Meursault's brusque mannerisms that lead to society judging him and ultimately hating him, as he is judged to be a threat. Meursault did not care about anything or anybody, but himself, and his own little pleasures and the necessities of the moment. He has no feelings, does not care to "advance" his life in the same way that others expect. It demonstrates how Meursault is a rebel in the eyes of society by his actions and upholds him as the archetype of an absurd man.
