Camus's key philosophical essay, in which he introduces his philosophy of the absurd: man's futile search for meaning, unity, and clarity in the face of an unintelligible world devoid of God, eternal truths or values. First published by Gallimard in 1942 as Le Mythe de Sisyphe, later translated into English by Justin O'Brien and issued by Knopf and Hamish Hamilton in 1955. Not in Roeming.
