Exile and the Kingdom.

CAMUS, Albert.

Item Number: 95112

New York: Alfred A. Knopf , 1958.

First American edition of Camus’ short story collection exploring themes of existentialism and absurdism. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good price-clipped dust jacket. Jacket design by Paul Rand. Jacket photograph by Karsh. Translated by Justin O’Brien.

This collection of six short stories covers the whole variety of existentialism, or absurdism, as Camus himself insisted his philosophical ideas be called. The six works collected in this volume include: The Adulterous Woman, The Renegade of a Confused Spirit, The Silent Man, The Guest, Jonas or the Artist at Work, and The Growing Stone. The final story most clearly manifests Camus' existential ideals with a protagonist who actively shapes his life in spite of receiving a deep insight into the absurdity of the world, and acting morally nevertheless.
