  • Theme Of Irony In The Guest By Albert Camus

    "The Guest" is a short story that displays multiple examples of irony, Albert Camus uses irony to get his theme across. The theme being, making what one believes is the right moral choice despite the consequences. This theme heavily reflects Camus' philosophical logic, he strongly believed in one's responsibility for their wrongdoings. In the short story, Daru has multiple choices to make, he has been given the choice to deliver the Arab to prison- respecting and obeying the government's rules. But with that choice, he will be endangering himself, but also further isolating himself from his community.

Camus uses this as further leverage in describing how disconnected the Schoolmaster feels from the rest of the village. It is ironic that Daru lives in such a desolated area, yet feels so comfortable. "This is the way the region was, cruel to live in, even without men--who…
