Camus and Hemingway: Suicide, Sisyphus, and the Leopard
The paper's author discusses how "Despite the absurd, Hemingway’s achievement proves that there is a difference between dying at the age of twenty and dying at the age of fifty. Both his life and Camus’s demonstrate that Sisyphus’s endeavors can fill the void with meaning and purpose."
