NEW "What's it all about, then, eh?" asks a Monty Python actor at the end of the movie "The Meaning of Life." Philosophers, theologians and writers have asked this question throughout the ages--from Plato to the present. And that is the question we, too, will address in our study of the prose and drama of Camus, Beckett, and Sartre. These writers challenge our traditional assumptions, broaden our understanding of human existence, and invite us to formulate our own answer to "what's it all about?"


Texts: Novel: Albert Camus, The Plague (a novel); Essay: "The Myth of Sisyphus.” Drama: Samuel Beckett, Waiting for Godot. Jean Paul Sartre, No Exit
