Meursault is a man who will not conform to what society expects from him. He refuses to display his emotions when his mother dies. When he commits a random act of violence his lack of remorse only compounds his guilt in front of society and law.

The Outsider is French author Albert Camus’s debut novel. Here he explores the meaning of life. The alienation from society which occurs when one does not conform. And the quiet joy in the “tender indifference” of the physical world.
