Albert Camus, born on the 7 November 1913, died on the 4 January 1960. Was a French philosopher, author, and journalist. His views contributed to the rise of the philosophy known as absurdism. He wrote in his essay The Rebel that his whole life was devoted to opposing the philosophy of nihilism while still delving deeply into individual freedom.
He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957.
France is the 1st country for Nobel Prizes in Literature, before USA 2nd.
Novels of our childhood.
I love all the books he wrote and also his so exciting life.
The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) is (except the bible) the most sold, read and beloved book in the history it has been translated in 250 languages (50 different translated editions in Chinese, 47 in Korean), even dialects like Sardinian and sold as more than 150 millions copies worldwide.
Rousseau the contrast with Descartes about Nature.
Discourse on Method (Descartes) or
A discourse upon the Origin and the Foundation of the Inequality Mankind and Profession of Faith of a Savoyard Vicar (Rousseau).
The greatest Rousseau and of course Voltaire.
I love her Hercule Poirot and Mrs Marple books so much - Sandez
J.R.R. Tolkien created an entire universe with his Middle-Earth legendarium, He even made a mythology to fit with it. In my eyes, no writer can ever reach the same status as Tolkien. Shakespeare wrote about violence, tragedy, rape, death and pedophilia (Juliet was 13), while Tolkien's books are filled with love, friendship, loyalty, victory over evil, trust and goodness.
A master and a monster in fiction
Genius of the triple meaning. connoisseur of human nature. Wrote masterful prose. Influenced many. Absolute genius.

"Boccace". Oh Dio non posso credere ai miei occhi. È "BOCCACCIO". It's "BOCCACCIO", not "BOCCACE".
Simone De Beauvoir wrote novels, essays, biographies, autobiography and monographs on philosophy, politics and social issues. She was known for her 1949 treatise The Second Sex, a detailed analysis of women's oppression and a foundational tract of contemporary feminism; and for her novels, including She Came to Stay and The Mandarins. She was also known for her lifelong open relationship with the famous French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre.
Read 'Les misérables', or the first two tomes, 'notre dame de Paris', great stories, deep drama, and breath taking adventures.
But furthermore, his poems are maybe the best in the French litterature.
