Fatum i absurd. Inspiracja tragedią grecką w twórczości Alberta Camusa

Joanna Roś


The purpose of this article is to show that the Greek drama for Albert Camus was an expression of the universal experience of the cruelty of fate. Dramatic stories of Oedipus and Prometheus were for him a kind of map of the world with space selected for the man and his denial of suffering. Camus knows that in the tragedy even a man who is a „plaything of the gods”, maintains strength and honor in his defeat, and that the hero embroiled in horror stories, preserves the dignity, which adds faith and courage. This is where Camus found the connotation between the concept of fate and absurd, because absurd can’t be defeated by force of human will, a munity directed against absurd does not save the Man from misfortune.
