Abstract

A Writer's Topography: Space and Place in the Life and Works of Albert Camus is a collection of articles in French and English selected from the proceedings of an international colloquium held in Boise, Idaho, on April 18-19, 2013, to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the birth of Albert Camus in 1913. The colloquium brought together distinguished scholars from around the world to present on and discuss Camus's thought and works as they relate to the role of topography. Consequently, the articles assembled here delve into the far-reaching and ever-present implications of topography as they emerged, developed, and evolved not only in Camus's own life, but in the bulk of his philosophical, literary, political and journalistic texts. The contributions range from studies on Camus's Écrits de jeunesse to his unfinished, posthumously published novel, Le Premier Homme, as well as from his lyrical and philosophical essays to personal journals and private correspondence.
