camus-1957

Today is the birthday of French Algerian author Albert Camus, a name no doubt familiar to readers of the Ramblings as he is one of my favourites! So I was really happy to be asked to contribute a piece to the Oxford Dictionaries Blog on Camus and his language!

Of course, I don’t read him in his native tongue, but considering two translations by the same person was fascinating and threw up some interesting uses of language. So do go and have a look – the post is here:
