    Meursault as Christ in The Stranger (The Outsider) In one of his later interviews, Camus made the somewhat irritated comment that Meursault is the “only Christ we deserve.” While this seem to be a pithy, witty comment, we need to figure out how Meursault is like Christ. Christ taught his disciples and had them go and teach others, yet Meursault has no disciples and chooses to say little. Meursault murders while Christ brings a man back from the dead.

    The Other Side of the Hedge, by E. M. Forster, seems to be nothing more than a story about a man walking down a long road.  The narrator's decision to go through the hedge transforms the story into an allegory that is full of symbols representing Forster's view of the journey of life.  The author develops the allegory through the use of several different symbols including the long road, the hedge and the water.

He intended to tell two stories from each of thirty pilgrims on the way to Canterbury, and then two more from each pilgrim on the way back from Canterbury. Of these, he completed only twenty-four. However, in these tales, Chaucer depicts both the pilgrims and their stories with striking realism. In "The Nun's Priest's Tale," "The Canon's Yeoman's Tale,"
