Men were constantly trying to prove themselves, something that still happens today but not in as physical of a way, so fighting, that could sometimes lead to death, was not that uncommon. Oedipus was unaware that the man was of royalty, and frankly, even if Oedipus did know, Oedipus was royal himself. He killed this man as a form of toxic masculinity, something all too common at the

The environment is behind all of Meursault’s struggles and problems in his mental world and interferes with his physical world as well, causing him to think that the world is irrational.
