HW12C due 3/13: The Stranger

1. The Stranger–Complete Part I! Some important “pieces” of the whole:

  • The Natural World (i.e. sun, flowers, sky, etc)
  • Raymond and his mistress
  • Salamano and his dog
  • Guilt/Judgement
  • Meursault’s relationship with Marie
  • And that other thing (intentional ambiguity…you will know what I mean when you finish Part I)

Remember, ultimately the novel acts as a philosophical vehicle and we will discuss it as such, but it is also a novel so we must treat it as a work of literature (i.e. paying attention to the author’s craft and how he creates meaning). Finally, in the back of your mind consider how the philosophical readings of the course help to inform your reading/interpretation of the novel.
