He does not divulge to the reader any specific reason for his crime or emotions he experiences at the time, if any, aside from the fact that he was bothered by the heat and bright sunlight.

Meursault is incarcerated, and explains his arrest, time in prison, and upcoming trial. His general detachment makes living in prison very tolerable, especially after he gets used to the idea of not being able to go places whenever he wants to and no longer being able to satisfy his sexual desires with Marie.

He passes the time sleeping, or mentally listing the objects he owned back in his apartment building.

At the trial, Meursault's quietness and passivity is seen as demonstrative of his seeming lack of remorse or guilt by the prosecuting attorney, and so the attorney concentrates more upon Meursault's inability or unwillingness to cry at his mother's funeral than on the actual murder. The attorney pushes Meursault to tell the truth but never comes through and later, on his own, Meursault explains to the reader that he simply was never really able to feel any remorse or personal emotions for any of his actions in life.

The dramatic prosecutor theatrically denounces Meursault to the point that he claims Meursault must be a soulless monster, incapable of remorse and that he thus deserves to die for his crime. Although Meursault's attorney defends him and later tells Meursault that he expects the sentence to be light, Meursault is alarmed when the judge informs him of the final decision: In prison, while awaiting the execution of his death sentence by the guillotine , Meursault meets with a chaplain , but rejects his proffered opportunity of turning to God, explaining that God is a waste of his time.

Although the chaplain persists in attempting to lead Meursault from his atheism or, perhaps more precisely, his apatheism , Meursault finally accosts him in a rage, with a climactic outburst on his frustrations and the absurdity of the human condition and his personal anguish at the meaninglessness of his existence without respite.

At the beginning of his outrage he mentions other people in anger, that they have no right to judge him for his actions or for who he is, and no one has the right to judge someone else.

Meursault ultimately grasps the universe's indifference towards humankind which allows him to come to terms with his execution. Meursault is a French Algerian who learns of his mother's death by telegram. Meursault's indifference to the news of his mother's death demonstrates some emotional detachment from his environment.

There are multiple instances throughout the novel where significant moments do not have an emotional impact on Meursault. He doesn't show emotion to the fact that his mother is dead, Marie loves him or that he killed someone. Another aspect of Meursault is that he is a truthful person. He always speaks his mind and does not care how other people see him. However, he may have committed perjury by providing hearsay testimony on behalf of his neighbor, Raymond.

He is regarded as a stranger to society due to his indifference. He brings Meursault into the conflict which ultimately results in Meursault killing the Arab.

Raymond can be a foil character of Meursault in that he takes action while Meursault is indifferent. Raymond and Meursault seem to develop a bond as the story goes on, ending with Raymond Sintes testifying for Meursault during his trial.

The Stranger

Marie Cardona is a typist in the same workplace as Meursault. A day after Meursault's mother's funeral she meets him at a public beach, which sparks their relationship. She asks if Meursault loves her but Meursault replies that he doesn't think so.

He still agrees to marry her prior to the murder and his arrest. Marie, like Meursault, enjoys physical contact in their relationship through the act of sex. She represents the enjoyable life Meursault wants and her pleasing aesthetic is one of the things that Meursault misses in jail. Masson is the owner of the beach house where Raymond takes Marie and Meursault.

Masson is a carefree person who simply likes to live his life and be happy. He wants to live life without restrictions.

Salamano is an old man who routinely takes his dog out for walks. He abuses the dog but is attached to it. When he loses his dog, he is distressed and asks Meursault for advice. Meursault does not offer helpful advice and Salamano acknowledges that his life has changed. In reality, it is a dense and rich creation, full of undiscovered meanings and formal qualities.

Gilbert's interpretation takes the liberty of juxtaposing "execration" with "execution". Camus's Algiers-set tale — of the office worker Meursault gunning down an Arab on the beach and subsequently being sentenced to death by the Franco-Algerian state for refusing to express regret — is partly a philosophical exploration of what Camus called "the tender indifference of the world", but it's equally a humanist paean to Meursault's everyday epicureanism.
