Summary

Texte intégral lu par Albert Camus en Avril 1954 en accord avec Gallimard et l'Institut national de l'Audiovisuel.

En juin 1942, paraît un court roman L'Etranger. L'auteur est un inconnu de 28 ans qui allait non seulement modifier l'histoire de la littérature française, mais aussi celle de la philosophie du XXe siècle avec la formulation du sentiment de l'absurdité du destin humain. Les 7, 8 et 9 avril 1954, Albert Camus enregistre l'intégralité de son texte pour la radio nationale (O.R.T.F). Il reçoit le prix Nobel en 1957.

Frémeaux & Associés et l'INA (Institut National de l'Audiovisuel) en accord avec Gallimard ont décidé de restaurer cet enregistrement et de mettre à la disposition du public, la lecture sonore de ce chef-d'œuvre par son auteur. Recruté par Albert Camus comme journaliste à Combat, auteur d'une biographie intellectuelle sur Camus et éditeur de son œuvre complète en 9 volumes, grand prix de littérature de l'Académie Française pour l'ensemble de son œuvre, Roger Grenier a réalisé le Livret accompagnant ce livre audio. Cet enregistrement attachant, révèle l'importance de notre patrimoine sonore permettant l'écoute de la pensée des grands intellectuels de l'histoire contemporaine.

20th century classic read by the author

I studied this book for my degree over forty years ago. I took my old copy down from the shelf and followed the text while listening to the audio. It is a French radio recording from the 1950’s but the sound is quite clear and Camus reads it well. Statement of the obvious, but of course it is all in French.

A milestone in literature I first discovered in my teens - poignantly read by Camus himself.

L’Etranger has always been a thought-provoking work for me and, in my opinion, the most erudite existentialist novel from a French author. I have only ever read it in French, and to hear it narrated by Camus himself, brings alive a cadence and rhythm that was formerly lost on me. Every word counts. At face value, it is a simple narrative, and can be enjoyed as such - but it is also a profound exposé of the Human condition, and its absurdity.
Thankyou Audible.

Amazing... read by Camus

It was really meaningful to hear Camus himself read this work. Very much appreciate the opportunity.
