Rationale My task is related to Part III: Literature-Texts and Contexts section of this course. My written task is a series of diary entries in the point of view of Meursault which express his feelings and actions based on explicit and implied events from the novel, The Stranger, by Albert Camus. In writing the journal entries, I wanted to show the character development of Meursault prior to him leaving school (first journal entry), then just after Maman’s death (second entry), and finally before his execution (final entry). I did this to reinforce common motifs, and themes, such as the idea of Absurdity: life has no inherent meaning but the one an individual assigns to it, and an individual is free to make their own decisions, but must face the consequences of their actions. When writing the journal entries, which I intended to be more personal and insightful into Meursault’s character than the novel.
Symbols are objects that signify other aspects in society and literature. Recognizing symbols allows the reader to dive deeper into the message the author wanted to convey.

For example here is him giving an explanation on why he cut part of the book out: “Me again. Of all the cuts in this version, I feel most justified in making this one.

The material cause is letters and papers then. What kind of book is that corresponding to specific novel? Is it criminal or philosophical book?
This symbolism is part of a bigger literary analysis that I read this novel through. The literary analysis is called Formalism and it is used to separate everything apart from the novel to just read the novel in its raw state to find the symbols and meaning behind the text. In Victor Erlich’s work Russian Formalism, he speaks of what Formalism is. Elich proclaims “The locus of peculiarly literary was to be sought in not in the author’s or the reader’s psyche, but in the work itself.” (Erlich 628) What Elrich is saying is that when you read a novel you should look for what is actually in the novel rather than looking at the
Some of the suggestions that I was given were to properly cite the author when I am quoting him/her, I had wrote “I prefer the term scavenging and use the word scourging when I mean to be obscure”. This is how I wrote it on the rough draft, I fixed it for the final by adding (Eighner, 114). Another example of work I had fixed was I had a lot of punctuation errors, an example of this was
