  • Description

    Is it possible to die a happy death? This is the central question of Camus's astonishing early novel, published posthumously and greeted as a major literary event. It tells the story of a young Algerian, Mersault, who defies society's rules by committing a murder and escaping punishment, then experimenting with different ways of life and finally dying a happy man.

    In many ways A Happy Death is a fascinating first sketch for The Outsider, but it can also be seen as a candid self-portrait, drawing on Camus's memories of his youth, travels and early relationships. It is infused with lyrical descriptions of the sun-drenched Algiers of his childhood – the place where, eventually, Mersault is able to find peace and die 'without anger, without hatred, without regret'.

    A Deep Explanation

    Camus answers the question of dying happily with fantastic descriptions of the life of Mersault. This book will certainly appeal to those who have read book "The Outsider" which is also published as ''The Stranger''. The issues pointed out by the character in the book are conclusive in spite of being based majorly on the absurdity of life. A good read if one wants to spend time thinking on a weekend.
