Abstract

This article links Camus’s recurrent lyrical themes and motifs with those of Faulkner. The speeches delivered by the two authors on receiving the Nobel Prize clearly underpin their conception of the art of writing, torn between suffering and beauty. For them the landscape alone can serve as a generative core to reveal the country itself. This article questions the tension raised by the South (Algeria and the imaginary county of Yoknapatawpha) and the authors’ aspiration for a lyrical prose liberated from the pressure of fiction writing. It outlines a parallel between their destiny and their accidental deaths.
