Tuvo una visión del mundo maravillosa, marcada por la ética, la justicia y un profundo humanismo plasmado en sus obras. Su producción literaria es muy original, y en ella desarrolla varios argumentos: la corriente filosófica del absurdo, la toma de conciencia y el tema de la condición humana. Una de sus obras maestras, L’Étranger (El extranjero, 1942), aborda estos temas de una manera fascinante, y es por eso que este artículo se referirá a esta novela. Se tratará de exponer los diferentes puntos de la filosofía de Camus mediante la narrativa de El extranjero, sus personajes y sus líneas de relato. Se utilizará principalmente la crítica de Alfonso López Quintás para profundizar en el personaje principal y en la intención que Camus tuvo con esta obra. Finalmente, se va a discutir el impacto de la novela en su época cuando se publicó por primera vez y su alcance hoy en día.  2013-12-04 2016-05-03T14:51:46Z 2016-05-03T14:51:46Z artículo científico http://revistas.ucr.ac.cr/index.php/rlm/article/view/12659 https://hdl.handle.net/10669/23828 spa Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 17 Copyright (c) 2014 Revista de Lenguas Modernas application/pdf Escuela de Lenguas Modernas, Universidad de Costa Rica Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 17 (2012) Revista de Lenguas Modernas; Núm. 17 (2012) 16591933
