Regular price $15.99 Sale


Albert Camus (1913-1960) is unsurpassed among writers for a body of work that animates the wonder and absurdity of existence. 
Speaking Out: Lectures and Speeches, 1938-1958 brings together, for the first time, thirty-four public statements from across Camus's career that reveal his radical commitment to justice around the world and his role as a public intellectual.

From his 1946 lecture at Columbia University about humanity's moral decline, his 1951 BBC broadcast commenting on Britain's general election, and his strident appeal during the Algerian conflict for a civilian truce between Algeria and France, to his speeches on Dostoevsky and 
Don Quixote, this crucial new collection reflects the scope of Camus's political and cultural influence.
