Albert Camus: A Centenary Tribute, 1913-1960


This small exhibition celebrated the life and work of French Nobel Prize winning author, journalist, and philosopher, Albert Camus. The exhibition featured correspondence between Camus and editors of the Partisan Review, regarding the publication of Camus' work in the magazine, the English translation of Albert Camus' article "The Absurd Writer," ("Un Ecrivain Absurde,") as well as the original French version, and early editions of Camus' books, L'tranger (The Stranger) and La Peste (The Plague). A photograph of Albert Camus was also included in the exhibition.

Although the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center at Boston University does not hold a major Albert Camus Archive, these materials were assembled from several collections to commemorate the Centenary of his birth.

This exhibit is no longer on view.
