CAMUS Albert (1913-1960)
L'Homme révolté, a file containing many documents from 1949-1952. In-4 blue buffalo box with paper plates decorated by Claudie de Séguier.
This set includes several groups of documents including:
- Polemic with Jean-Paul Sartre: typing with Camus' autograph corrections of the famous Letter to the Director of Modern Times published on June 30, 1952 and included in Actuelles under the title "Révolte et servitude". This letter, an essential and often quoted document, crystallizes well the ideological oppositions of the two most outstanding French intellectual figures of the post-war period (Paris, June 26, 1952, 28 pp. in-4, autograph corrections and additions)
- Set of autograph handwritten notes by Camus, probably taken in view of the interview Dialogue given to the review Défense de l'Homme in July 1949. Camus reflects on the question "Fear what?". This interview is not included in Actuelles, nor in La Pléiade, and these notes have probably never been studied (3 pp. in-8, including 2 on "Nrf" letterhead, 1 p. in-4, first draft, important corrections). The handwritten transcription of these notes is joined by a hand other than that of Camus (3 pp. in-4)
- Polemic between Albert Camus and André Breton about Lautréamont: a set of press clippings covering their entire exchange
- Typing with corrections and additions autographs by Camus of "l'Entretien sur la révolte" with Pierre Berger, published in La Gazette des lettres on February 15, 1952 and reprinted in Actuelles under the same title (10 pp. in-8). in-4 with autograph corrections and additions)
- Various reviews and comments on L'Homme révolté: 3 articles: André Billy for Le Figaro, Georges Fontenis for Le Libertaire, and André Rousseaux. (3 pp. in-8, 1 p. in-8 and 1 p. In-folio).
