Albert Camus, une tragédie du bonheurUn siècle d'écrivains
This portrait attempts to deconstruct the negative, tragic or, conversely, naive image often attached to this great name in modern literature and political history. Jean Daniel's subjective commentary conveys the simple happiness that inhabits the work of Albert Camus... a happiness hindered, wounded, soon to be lost sight of. With regard to this axis, the course of his biography is divided into three parts. The first, devoted to childhood and youth, returns to the places of origin of the Algerian land. The second part, from 1941 to 1952, is organised around the writing of The Stranger and the Myth of Sisyphus. As for the last part, it substitutes for the word of the public man a more intimate figure, which appears in the distance taken from the Parisian circle and the communist ideology. An intimate insight through the reading of personal writings, correspondence and diaries.
