Faulkner et Camus face à Dostoïevski
Pourquoi souffrir ?
Based on the analysis of Faulkner’s novel Requiem for a Nun and its stage adaptation by Camus, this article focuses on the elements that connect the two authors and aims to illustrate their relationship with Dostoïevski’s work. The interest is mainly directed towards the theme of suffering as it is revealed in the Russian novelist’s writings and its exploitation through Faulkner and Camus’s dramatic art and work.
