Notebooks 1935-1942

Some brief overview of book

From 1935 until his death, Albert Camus kept a series of notebooks to sketch out ideas for future works, record snatches of conversations and excerpts from books he was reading, and jot down his reflections on death and the horror of war, his feelings about women and loneliness and art, and his appreciations for the Algerian sun and sea. These three volumes, now available together for the first time in paperback, include all entries made from the time when Camus was still completely unknown in Europe, until he was killed in an automobile accident in 1960, at the height of his creative powers. In 1957 he had been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

A spiritual and intellectual auto biography, Camu's Notebooks are invariably more concerned with what he felt than with what he did. It is i ntriguing for the reader to watch him seize and develop certain themes and ideas, discard others that at f irst seemed promising, and explore different types of experience.
