In this pocket-size book, Albert Camus considers that artists should create as an act of rebellion that challenge and give voice to those who cannot be heard.
Author Albert Camus (1913-60) grew up in a working-class neighbourhood in Algeria. He studied philosophy and became a journalist. His most important works include The Outsider, The Myth of Sisyphus, The Plague and The Fall. After the occupation of France by the Germans in 1941, Camus became one of the intellectual leaders of the Resistance movement. He was killed in a road accident, leaving an unfinished novel.
