Does Meursault have a complete life?
No matter how many people view Meursault as a hero, I still cannot see him as someone I would want to emulate. Yes, I can see that he is a tragic hero, and I even find myself sympathizing with him a little bit, after hearing what everyone has to say about him. But is he really that worthy of admiration?
Yes, he does not conform to society, but he does not even think about it. He just does what he does, feeling only hot, tired, irritated, content, or full of lust for Marie.
WHERE IS HIS PASSION????
OK, I can see how he has an admirable quality (singular, because his only admirable quality is not being obsessed with societal systems), but on the whole, I do not believe that he is a person worthy of role-model status.
Would any of you want to live a life devoid of true joy, of true love, of true pain, of any emotion where you really experience human life?
Would you really want to live a life where annihilating another human being does not cause a second thought?
