"The Meursault Investigation" by Kamel Daoud: A Study Guide is a comprehensive aid to reflective reading of this popular novel. The guide explains and explores the relationship of this text to Albert Camus' philosophy of the absurd and specifically to his novel "The Stranger." (Text is 22,600 words approx.)
1. Teacher's introduction;
2. Original annotated list of characters;
3. Original detailed sections on setting, genre, themes, etc.;
4. Extensive commentary for each chapter.
5. A separate section of questions on each chapter (49 in all)
The questions encourage readers to a deeper understanding of the background, themes, and characters of the text. Though most of the issues ARE covered in the commentaries, specific answers are NOT provided; students must find their own answers in the text - and they will. They are designed to stimulate thought, discussion and interpretation, not to test, and can be used for self-study, homework, group discussion in class, jigsaw groups, formal presentations, written answers, etc.;
6. Practical ideas for groupings for classroom discussion, feedback, and presentation;
7. Glossary of relevant literary terms;
8. Two graphic organizers (plot structure and character) for student annotation;
9. Extensive Bibliography and guide to further reading.
Please note that I also have products covering Albert Camus' books "The Myth of Sisyphus," and "The Stranger," and "The Plague."
