  • The Outsiders

    1962 words - 8 pages

    A Benign Indifference In The Outsider, the author gives the readers the opportunity to walk in the shoes of the main character Meursault, a seemingly detached and emotionless Frenchman who works as a shipping clerk in Algiers. The Outsider is told in the first person and traces the development of Meursault’s attitude toward himself and the rest of the world. Camus' way of creating a contrast between the two faces of Meursault can be seen by the separation of the book into two parts. The first part describes Meursault as an indifferent character. In this part readers are simply presented

    Ecotourism and the environment: The environment is one of the primary concerns of ecotourism, which often involves travel to relatively undisturbed areas. As the tourism product is often dependent upon nature, negative impacts upon that resource should be minimized. As Cater [1994] notes, even the most conscientious tourist will have some degree of impact on the environment and so ecotourism should therefore attempt to minimize that impact. Many studies of tourism attempt to identify an environmental carrying capacity but a major difficulty of this technique is that it “implies the existenc

It seems to me like he has lost connection with his mother and so she wasn’t a large part of his life to start with. Maybe Meursault is just in shock from the news and it hasn’t really registered in his mind yet, but it seems to me it’s more likely that Meursault is just a detached man. Maybe something has happened to him in the past to make him act this way. For example he never mentions his father; maybe his father died and traumatized him, leaving him in this detached s
