To hell with human feelings, I can achieve the impossible by sacrificing everything

Caligula - Pierre-Louis Rey, Albert Camus

Caligula is the story of a superior suicide. It is the story of the most human and the most tragic of errors. Unfaithful to man, loyal to himself, Caligula consents to die for having understood that no one can save himself all alone and that one cannot be free in opposition to other men.

 

i read this one in french and i still can't believe i was able to finish it without having to consult my dictionary that often.

i'm currently in love with Camus. i've only started reading his books this year and yet, every time i read one of his works i feel as if it's written for me.

in this play Caligula, the Roman Emperor, is torn by the death of Drusilla, his sister and lover. Due to his seemingly unstable mental health (insanity) he rejects friendship and manipulates his own assassination.
