Summary

The Nobel Prize winner’s most influential and enduring lectures and speeches, newly translated by Quintin Hoare, in what is the first English-language publication of this complete collection.  Albert Camus (1913–1960) is unsurpassed among writers for a body of work that animates the wonder and absurdity of existence. Speaking Out: Lectures and Speeches, 1937–1958 brings together, for the first time, thirty-four public  statements from across Camus’s career that reveal his radical commitment to justice around the world and his role as a public intellectual.  From his 1946 lecture at Columbia University about humanity’s moral decline to his 1951 BBC broadcast commenting on Britain’s general election; and from his strident appeal during the Algerian conflict for a civilian truce between Algeria and  France to his speeches on Dostoevsky and Don Quixote, this essential collection reflects the scope of Camus’s political and cultural influence.
