Criticism about Albert Camus

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.”
