Exile and the Kingdom

Exile and the Kingdom

Albert Camus

From various masterfully rendered views, those six tales depict humans at painful odds with the realm round them. A spouse can merely hand over to a barren region evening by means of betraying her husband. An artist struggles to honor his personal aspirations in addition to society's expectancies of him. A missionary brutally switched over to the worship of a tribal fetish is left with yet an echo of his id. even if set in North Africa, Paris, or Brazil, the tales in Exile and the Kingdom are probing photographs of non secular exile, and man’s perpetual look for an internal country during which to be reborn. They demonstrate Camus on the peak of his powers.

Now, at the fiftieth anniversary of the book’s booklet, Carol Cosman’s new translation recovers a literary treasure for our time.

Albert Camus received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957.
