Storyboard Text

  •  “From a distance…without even thinking about it.” (pg. 57) The author adds detail about the rock and Meursault walking in the beach because Meursault wants to escape how he feels about killing the Arab. 
  • “As soon as he saw me…” (pg. 58) The beginning part of this chapter is initiated with Meursault describing the Arabs actions with the adverbs ¨As soon as¨. The reader can interpret this description as a ¨fast” moving part of the chapter. Here, the Arab can be envisioned as a person that is troubled. His actions are swift and quick for a person in leisure at the beach, yet contextual to his previous conflict with Raymond.
  • “It occurred to me….by stepping forward.”(pg.59) In contrast to the previous line, the reader gets the sense, the tone of time slowing down. Meursault instead of talking about the Arab that has taken out a gun at him proceeds to talk about the burning sun rays on his back. The sun plays a pivotal part in this story. In this case, it demonstrates the idea that the sun's blazing intensity without regard for bodily comfort or peace of mind stands for the general disregard the natural world has for humanity. Thus, human life is essentially meaningless and no higher or deeper order should be looked for.

  • “The scorching blade…door of unhappiness.” (pg 59)        The moment he decided to take the shots, he wasn’t hesitant at all. He started and finished what he intended to do from the beginning and he stuck with his kill. The Arab probably already. He even said he was happy. Each shot made it more meaningless to his life.               
  • Analysis: Albert Camus author of  ¨The Stranger" utilizes time as a way to create suspense and momentum. The reader can anticipate that Meursault and Raymond are up to no good and are thinking bad things. The tone is set for death. In addition, when Camus decides to ignore all of the surroundings of the character it allows for contemplation both for the reader and character. The pause signifies that they had the choice not to kill but they did it anyway. The reader can think of how vicious and imply that their morals and ethics are different than societies. The fast forwarding of time and shortening  of time leaves a lot of room for interpretation, which is an absurd idea of extentialist characteristic of anguish. Humanity is faced with the anguish of choosing on a higher powers behalf, but when we decide to make decision for our own it may not always mean we are doing the correct thing.  Theme: Act according to your beliefs
