This work deals with the main interests of William Faulkner and Albert Camus as far as modernity is concerned, and includes the problems of time, conscience and truth, as well as guilt and man’s future. Through the reality of their individual experience, and facing the ethical demands of collective history, as well as the questioning of temporality, the American novelist and the French essayist have shown the dramatic contingencies of historical events. In the darkness of present times they searched for the hope for man to survive which lies in himself, in his capacity to transform the transient, ephemeral present into the capture of the possible by human conscience, and to leave the door open to the possibility of connecting the self to others.
