Review of 'Resistance, rebellion, and death' on 'GoodReads'

4 stars

Camus was such a powerful force of nature. Clear, precise, penetrating and brutally honest. His essays "Reflections on the Guillotine" and "Create Dangerously" were one of the most precise works I've come across on the subjects that I think about a lot - the futility of the death penalty and the work of an artist. Looking forward to read the rest of his bibliography.
