Futility of Human Existence Exposed in The Guest by Albert Camus - “He who despairs of the human condition is a coward, but he who has hope for it is a fool” (Wyatt).

Camus’s underlying philosophy is revealed from the very beginning of the story. The French title, “L’hote”, translates to mean both “guest” and “host” simultaneously, which implies that the mutually respectful relationship between the main characters in the story should be applied to mankind everywhere....   [tags: The Guest Albert Camus] 2328 words
