About


A Search for Meaning
The Outsider or Stranger is a novel by Albert Camus that explores philosophical schools of thought: existentialism, absurdism and nihilism. Camus argues in his novels that believing in human potential, rather than God we can have a meaningful life. Hopkins in the selected poems argues that there is order in the world and that this can be seen in the harmony and beauty of nature and that is proof of God's existence.
