This essay aims to highlight the representations of ambivalent nature in Albert Camus’ work. Key theme within the author’s literary and philosophical approach, nature has spread into all his writings. Great symbol of the world’s beauty, nature echoes its absurdity at the same time. Therefore, it shapes a contradictory background in which a human being should live; through silent images describing namely the sun, the sky, the sea and the stone, Camus faces up nature’s death as an occasion to get into the solitude of existence. From that point of view, and throughout his entire work, nature is certainly not dead; the object of this paper is to examine how natural imagery is actually portraying the absurd connection between the man and the world.
