Albert Camus: Elements of a Life in the London Review of Books

Return to Home

In the August 19 issue of the London Review of Books, Michael Wood writes of Albert Camus: Elements of a Life by Robert Zaretsky: “Zaretsky’s brief, astute book takes particular moments of Camus’s life—his acting days in Algeria, his Resistance work during the war, his agreements and disagreements with other intellectuals in France immediately after the war, his final silence on the Algeria question—and provides them with context and commentary, sometimes linking them to longer lines of history and culture, to early twentieth-century Ireland, for example, to the Greece of Thucydides and the tragedians.”
