Pendant la seconde guerre mondiale, il intègre un mouvement de résistance à Paris, puis devient rédacteur en chef du journal "Combat" à la Libération. Romancier, dramaturge et essayiste, il signe notamment "L'étranger" (1942) et "La Peste" (1947), et reçoit le prix Nobel de littérature en 1957. Il meurt en 1960 dans un accident de voiture. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By S. Lavigne on March 7 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dernière œuvre achevée de Camus avant sa mort, la Chute est rédigée sous la forme d'un monologue; celui d'un homme s'accusant et se jugeant lui-même, pour ce qu'il a fait et pour ce qu'il est devenu par suite d'un évènement tragique auquel il a assisté sans toutefois intervenir. Cette confession amènera de nombreuses réflexions sur la morale, sur l'ordre social et sur la mort. À lire!

Ce produit est de très grande qualité. La mise en page est excellente et la version Kindle sur Tablette Android permet une lecture conviviale et adaptée à vos normes. Je recommande fortement ce produit. Enfin, peu à dire sur l'oeuvre comme tel, Camus était unique. Merci.

Authentically Camus Feb. 15 2000
By la - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This spare and lucid novella is one of Camus' finest. The extended monologue format is intriguing, and the fact that it was a rather nasty send-up of many of the existentialists with whom Camus had had a falling-out was especially marvelous. One is reminded of Dostoevsky's The Underground but, Camus' message is far easier to swallow. La Chute can't help but confirm Camus' brilliance as a writer.

El mejor libro de Albert Camus, una verdadera obra de arte Feb. 14 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Un libro excepecional, tanto por el argumento como por la forma en que esta escrito. Un agudo analisis de la sociedad y del hombre. Para leer varias veces. Lei un comentario en Amazon sobre este libro que decia que la historia era poco creible pero que lo recomendaba porque tenia pocas paginas. Una verdadera estupidez. ¿De donde saco este buen señor que la historia tiene que ser creible? ¿Y si la historia fuese lo de menos? ¿Se puede recomendar un libro solo porque tiene pocas paginas? ¿Es que acaso "Los demonios" de Dostoyevski, o "Los Hermanos Karamazov" no son recomendables porque tienen mas de 700 paginas?

Quality of book was as described, used but still has a few more years ahead of it. It was shipped relatively quickly, so that's cool.

Great read, quick, and fairly easy for intermediate french learner.

Would purchase again from this retailer.
