CAMUS Albert (1913-1960)
Signed autograph letter to Robert TRÉNO about The Revolted Man.
S.l., September 18, 1952, 1 page in-4 in ink on paper (restorations on the back of the paper a little crumpled).
Important letter on the controversy between Jean-Paul Sartre and Camus about The Revolted Man, which led to their break-up. Signed autograph letter addressed to Ernest Raynaud, known as Robert Tréno, journalist and future director of Le Canard enchaîné.
"Dear Tréno, Thank you for your friendly proposal. If I had had to answer, F. T. would have been the right person to do so. But I cannot follow Modern Times, and their little allies, on the ground they have chosen. Let them sell this "heartbreaking" correspondence through advertisements. I shake your hand, very cordially Albert Camus P.S. I have just read Georges' article, and I am very touched. Thank him for me. And don't let him worry too much about the broken friendship. If this case proves anything, it is precisely that there was no friendship, if not on my side".
