Albert Camus

Writer (November 07, 1913 - January 04, 1960)
Nationality: French
Although he has been associated with existentialism and nihilism, Albert Camus avoided direct links with any one ideology. He was a controversial figure during his time, but he is one of the most influential authors in French and absurdist literature.
