About this product
- DescriptionExiles, Outcasts, Strangers explores how nine different outsider authors treat the theme of alienation in one of their major works. All the vels under review were written in a limited time span (1942 to 1987, approximately 50 years), and all are structured around a hero or heroine who remains culturally, ethically or aesthetically distant from his/her narrative counterparts. Works discussed: Albert Camus' L'Etranger; Richard Wright's The Outsider; Andre Langevin's Poussiere sur la ville; Ernesto Sabato's El tunel; V.S. Naipaul's Guerrillas; Elie Wiesel's Le Cinquieme fils; Norbert Zongo's Le Parachutage; Gisele Pineau's L'Exil selon Julia, and Jean Genet's Querelle de Brest.
