  1. This book along with the Wasteland by Eliot and the collected works of Graham Greene shaped my adolescent worldview I found Camus s disarming candor admirable and his insight into a world ready to judge than repent fascinating This week, I am sharing this novel with my AP Research we consider whether modern literature ever rises above identity I consider Camus to be Dostoevsky, Shakespeare and Dante s rival in the regard He captures quintessentially the human condition Existential ennui is the r [...]


  2. I know what you re thinking it s very hard to disentangle the true from the false in what I am saying I admit you are right In Albert Camus The Fall, an expatriate Frenchman indulges us through a narration that gives us glimpses of his past, a journey that includes his experiences of being a lawyer as well as philosophical points about his life experiences There is a sense that he omits quite a bit from his narration, and Camus style creates this.While I realize that this book is highly regarded [...]


  3. Excellent read, beautiful prose but it s also pretty dense As short as it is, it still takes some time to get through because it s tough to absorb than 20 30 pages at a time Some brilliant quotes though The lowest man in the social scale still has his wife or his child If he s unmarried, a dog The essential thing, after all, is being able to get angry with someone who has no right to talk back I personally enjoyed Camus novels better such as The Stranger and The Plague.


  4. The Fall is a novel, which tells the story of Jean Baptiste Clamence, a judge residing in Amsterdam Throughout The Fall the reader witnesses Clamence turn from a respected Parisian lawyer and champion of noble causes, into a man whose history haunts him around every turn Essentially, the reader witnesses a good mans progress thwarted by blemishes of his past.The central idea behind this novel is to show the reader that they mustn t draw conclusions on those around them, because everyone has faul [...]


  5. Written in the second person like The Confessions of Saint Augustine to a man he meets at a bar who is really the reader , Clamence leads us into the story of his life and moral degradation In the process he leads his interlocutor us on a journey of questioning our own moral assumptions about ourselves and the things we take for granted A wonderful short novel by one of the most important existentialists of the 20th century.


  6. This book really moved me when I had to read it in college I d often thought of it through the years, telling myself that I must buy it, and read it again But I never remembered it when I was in a bookstore Recently I considered that I had a bookstore in my hands, and within a few minutes, it was ordered and would be on its way The Internet is not without many problems, and, I believe, than a few dangers But it also has it s best aspects, and this was one of them ,Melanie


  7. Such an amazing work, to digest than The Stranger.There are still some facets of the Judge s character that I am trying to sort out, whether they are personality traits or some facet of existentialism.There are several laugh out loud moments, but maybe it s just me.


  8. A boring drunk in a bar is how The Fall seems to start But soon the reader feels like the Wedding Guest enthralled with the Tale being told by The Ancient Mariner.Lover of Women Justice A successful Lawyer , defender of widows orphans the downtrodden Willing to offer a helping hand to just about anyone This great generosity of spirit Then this Fall from Grace How Why This great generosity of spirit Might it be self serving This Love for Women Maybe that s a way of saying I never Loved any of the [...]


  9. Camus was one of a number of post war French writers who used the novel as a vehicle for their philosophy, using fiction to explore our place in the modern world The story of The Fall , such as there is, unfolds not in actions or plot but in speech and the articulation of thoughts and ideas.It consists of a monologue, spread across five days in Amsterdam and its environs, as the garrulous narrator Jean Baptiste Clamance tells his story as soon as I open my mouth, the words pour out Clamance is a [...]
