Jean-Baptiste Clamence is a judge-penitent who can be found sitting humbly at a sailor’s bar in Amsterdam. It would be fair to say that it is an absolute delight to be seated next to him as long as you have the fortitude to endure his uncensored and ruthless honesty about all things he wishes to speak about; the weaknesses and indulgences of man, the futility of life, candid narrations of horrifying accounts from history, just to mention a few. His unwavering confidence sways you, be it against your will. His observations and delivery of speech makes you cringe, possibly leave you speechless, yet his charm does not allow you to dislike him. Albert Camus has successfully managed to capture the essence of the human experience through the transparency of Jean-Baptiste’s fleeting thoughts. This allows us, the readers, a deep insight into the world around us. We understand that we are deeply flawed, as is everyone around us and should embrace this truth with much grace.

About the Author

Albert Camus was a French-Algerian writer, philosopher and journalist. He was born in Mondovi, French Algeria on vember 7, 1913. Although not trained as a philosopher, he contributed towards the avant-garde twentieth-century philosophical ideas of Absurdism in the form of essays, novels, reviews and articles. He also became active in the resistance against the colonial French government and served as editor-in-chief of the newspaper Combat from 1944 to 1947. Camus established himself as a fiction writer with his three novels: The Stranger (1942), The Plague (1947), and The Fall (1956). His philosophical books The Myth of Sisyphus (1942), and The Rebel (1951) proved him to be a forceful thinker. Because of his formidable impact on the world of letters in the second half of the twentieth century, he was awarded the prestigious bel Prize in 1957 for illuminating “the problems of the human conscience.” He was only 44 years old at the time. He died in an automobile accident at the age of 46.
