As a notable French Algerian writer of philosophical literature in the early 1940s, Camus's essays, novels, and playwrights focused on his moralist political stance and brought absurdism to light in the era of twentieth-century philosophy. Moreover, Camus is said to have written "on every subject that demanded a position," which can be seen in his diverse literary works on ethics, humanity, and politics.
