Description

The Nobel Prize winner's most influential and enduring lectures and speeches, newly translated by Quintin Hoare, in what is the first English-language publication of this complete collection.

Albert Camus (1913-1960) is unsurpassed among writers for a body of work that animates the wonder and absurdity of existence. Speaking Out: Lectures and Speeches, 1937-1958 brings together, for the first time, 34 public statements from across Camus' career that reveal his radical commitment to justice around the world and his role as a public intellectual. From his 1946 lecture at Columbia University about humanity's moral decline to his 1951 BBC broadcast commenting on Britain's general election, and from his strident appeal during the Algerian conflict for a civilian truce between Algeria and France to his speeches on Dostoevsky and Don Quixote, this essential collection reflects the scope of Camus' political and cultural influence.
