A fabtastic book by Camus, that brings you into a world in which you feel you are the protagonist. ( )

You are in a crowded subterranean bar in Amsterdam, trying unsuccessfully to attract the attention of the barman, when a stranger comes to your assistance. Confident and friendly, he introduces himself as Jean-Baptiste Clamence, and proceeds to tell you his life story. Because you are the ‘you’ who is addressed throughout The Fall, a silent witness to Clamence’s confession. He explains how he used to be a successful Parisian defence lawyer, a champion of the poor and oppressed, a good liberal and a happy man with many friends and admirers. But that was before the fall. Now he lives amongst criminals, in self-exile in Amsterdam with its concentric canals ‘like the circles of hell’. A self-styled ‘judge-penitent’ he spends his time confessing his sins to the strangers he meets in the seedy bars he frequents.

Philosophical meditation, dramatic monologue and authorial confession disguised as a novel; The Fall is all of these. It’s certainly a technical tour de force and Clamence’s monologue is sustained with great skill. Camus’ collapsing of the fourth wall produces an effect at first intimate and eventually uncomfortably claustrophobic. ‘You’ are dragged involuntarily into the novel and left hopelessly implicated in its narrator’s testimony. Clamence is the most seductive stranger ‘you’ ever encountered in a sleazy bar: elegantly epigrammatic, sardonically witty and beguilingly lyrical. He is also not so much a man who has lost his innocence as one who has made the shattering discovery that he was guilty all along. He is at once confessor of his own sins and accuser of all humanity. Is he unusually candid or unutterably manipulative? Truth-teller or sophist? ‘You’ be the judge.

Clamence ‘is the talking voice that runs on’ (as Stevie Smith said of her alter-ego Pompey Casmilus in Novel on Yellow Paper). He rattles around your brain for ninety-odd pages raising endless questions about our old friend the human condition. Are altruism and egotism the same thing? Do we like to judge others to avoid being judged ourselves? Are we all guilty? Camus leaves any possible answers to ‘you’, the reader. ( )

"Para ser feliz, não devo preocupar-me demais com o outro." O protagonista Clamence , advogado, não acredita mais nos discursos que deve fazer no tribunal sobre justiça, lei, crime. Sua descida ao inferno começa, e ela é feia, embora esclarecedora. Existem verdades filosóficas que Camus aborda, mas as desilusões predominam. Contado como um longo monólogo estendido por vários dias, o romance revê os grandes pontos altos da vida de Clemence como um respeitado advogado criminalista e os baixos de sua vida como um libertino sem consciência discernível nem bússola moral.

By far my favorite book of his that I've read. I specially love the format: a conservation that we can only read one part of, though the narration tells you enough that you can fill in the answers of the other side by mere context cues.
Really recommend it. ( )

A promising work. The first half is camus at his strongest. His description of the "upstanding avocat" is reminiscent of the "Lovers" prefaces in The Peste (the strongest sections in that work), and contains the promise of subtle insight to follow. Unfortunately camus doesn't make good on this.

The self-description of the soi-disant "virtuous person" already contains some not-so-subtle hints of its collapse (most prominent in association with the narrators adoration for Height: being at the top, looking down, etc. - such imagery isn't difficult to parse) and this is fine. From there it would be sufficient to develop these flaws and thereby follow to the end the trajectory of such an above-average person - an idea for a passable work. Had he more courage, camus would have instead given him an "abnormal psychology" which, perfect in its virtue, anticipates its own demise and rejects it, finally succumbing to a clever dialectical turn in which the virtuous narrator approximates himself to a higher categorial virtue and annihilates himself (a kind of "Johannes de Silentio" figure - though dealing with "Judge William"-type questions). Camus has patience for neither of these approaches.

Quite simply, he has the narrator enter "existential" proximity with "the truth", after which he immediately becomes the insecure, idealistic, strangely young character who is the precise self-image of the "disillusioned" (and almost invariably male) lycée readers who have come to admire this author so very much. From there we get a few tiresome ideas such as:

"I learned what life is really like and realized I was a hypocrite to be held in such high esteem, and so I began acting out precisely to fall in these graces and become who I really am." (this is what teens like to imagine they are doing when they act out)

"Once I realized other people could judge me I lost the assurance of my character and became insecure" (coincidentally the teenager is also just discovering that other people have thoughts too)

"As a 'judge-penitant' I am actually the most clever person in the room because, with my dialectical approach, I am able to convince my interlocutor to divulge their deepest inadequacies while, really, I risk nothing. They are affected, but I am right and shall never change." (this one speaks for itself)

That said, the prose, even in translation, is not bad, and the work also has the virtue of brevity - take note. ( )

"La caída" de Albert Camus es una novela filosófica en forma de monólogo dramático. El protagonista, Jean-Baptiste Clamence, es un antiguo abogado parisino que confiesa la historia de su vida y su caída moral a un oyente anónimo en un sórdido bar de Ámsterdam.

Clamence comienza como un abogado de éxito y moralmente recto, pero sufre una profunda transformación tras una crisis personal. Se convierte en una figura distante y cínica que ve la vida a través de la lente del existencialismo. La novela explora temas como la culpa, la responsabilidad y la condición humana.

Clamence reflexiona sobre sus propios fallos morales y la hipocresía de la sociedad. Se presenta a sí mismo como un juez-penitente, alguien que reconoce sus propios pecados y busca el reconocimiento de los demás. La narración sirve de crítica al vacío moral de la sociedad moderna y a la evasión de la responsabilidad personal por parte de los individuos.

"La caída" es una obra compleja e introspectiva que ahonda en los fundamentos filosóficos del existencialismo, abordando cuestiones como la autenticidad, las relaciones humanas y la naturaleza de la culpa. La novela invita a los lectores a contemplar los retos de vivir una vida auténtica y con sentido en un mundo aparentemente indiferente.

Some were dreadfully insulted, and quite seriously, to have held up as a model such an immoral character as A Hero of Our Time; others shrewdly noticed that the author had portrayed himself and his acquaintances...A Hero of Our Time, gentlemen, is in fact a portrait but not of an individual; it is the aggregate of the vices of our whole generation intheir fullest expression.

L'Olanda è un sogno, caro signore, un sogno d'oro e di fumo, più fumoso di giorno e più dorato di notte, e giorno e notte questo sogno è popolato di Lohengrin come questi, che trascorrono in sogno su nere biciclette dagli alti manubri, cigni neri che girano senza tregua per tutto il paese, intorno ai mari, lungo i canali.
Io riprendevo forza e poi la riperdevo. La vita diventava meno facile: quando il corpo è triste, il cuore langue. Mi sembrava di disimparare in parte quello che non avevo mai imparato e che tuttavia sapevo così bene: vivere, voglio dire.
Gliel'ho detto, si tratta di sfuggire al giudizio. Siccome sfuggirvi è difficile, mentre riuscire a far ammirare e insieme scusare la propria natura è buona creanza, cercano tutti di essere ricchi. Perché? Se lo è mai chiesto? Per essere potenti, certo. Ma soprattutto perché la ricchezza sottrae al giudizio immediato, ti libera dalla folla della metropolitana per chiuderti in una carrozzeria nichelata, isola in vasti parchi ben custoditi, vetture letto, cabine di lusso. La ricchezza, caro amico, non è ancora l'assoluzione, è la condizionale, che fa sempre comodo.
Fatto sta che, dopo lunghi studi su me stesso, ho scoperto la duplicità profonda della creatura. Allora, a furia di frugare nella memoria, ho capito che la modestia mi aiutava a brillare, l'umiltà a vincere e la virtù ad opprimere. Facevo la guerra con mezzi pacifici, e alla fine, per mezzo del disinteresse, ottenevo ciò che agognavo.
Ma di nuovo trovai un ostacolo in me stesso. Questa volta fu il fegato, insieme ad una stanchezza così grande che ancora me la porto dietro. Uno gioca a fare l'immortale, e in capo a qualche settimana non sa nemmeno più se potrà strascicarsi fino al giorno dopo.
