This packet offers a wide variety of tools and helpful analysis templates to guide students in understanding Albert Camus's classic novella, "The Stranger." This novella was used in conjunction with two other texts - Henrik Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" and Franz Kafka's "The Metamorphosis" - as well as Milos Forman's film adaptation of Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" as part of an advanced high school literature class entitled "The Individual and Society."
Included in this guide are:
- inferences about author bio
- character list
- guidance for character and quote analysis
- graphic organizers for analyzing Camus's use of literary devices - symbolism, metaphor, irony, etc.
- several mini-prompts that can either be used as discussion or written opportunities
