I have written extensively on Albert Camus including separate Guides on "The Myth of Sisyphus," “The Stranger” and "The Plague" and on "The Meursault Investigation" the 2015 novel by Algerian writer Kamel Daoud. (All available on TPT and from Amazon.com.)
Parts of this product are taken (with modification) from my book "The Stranger A Critical Introduction" which offers an analysis of all of Camus' published works up to 1944. (It is available on Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, on TPT and in a variety of ebook formats.)
