- The article analyzes the phenomenon of loneliness in the novel by A. Camus “The Stranger” and in the essay “The Myth of Sisyphus”. The authors focus on comparing the reality of the absurdity and the absurdity of reality, arguing that, following Caligula and Patrice, both the protagonist “The Stranger” and Sisyphus not only follow the commandments of the absurd, but also come to the same conclusions — “rebellion” against the truth, "freedom" in relation to the existing "general rules" and "passion" in the love of human life.
