Name Professor Course Date Albert Camus in “The Stranger” vividly indicates what people can become as a result of some events occurring in their lifetime. Meursault’s personality and character emanated from the 1942 World War 2. During this period millions of people were dying and the environment as well as moral of the world happened to be very low. He becomes a cold which made him be seen as a heartless person who does not take care of people or anything. He looked as an abnormal individual in the community because of his actions and understands behavior very well. This has been witnessed in the whole novel many times and every time no changes are seen. Inconsistencies are also present whereby he shows emotions just because of the unique circumstance he finds himself. In the entire novel Meursault known to be an atheist is proved to be a sensualist noticeably disengaged candidly makes sense. Meursault just at any point needed to feel physically okay and this is demonstrated the entire time all through the play. He wouldn't like to feel agony bitterness or outrage but just satisfaction. When somebody encounters some injury that is the manner by which individuals can wind up. Meursault's persona is a case of how individuals can turn on account of troublesome circumstances or circumstances individuals are placed in and this can be the final product (Todd & Olivier pp16).
