The Knot (final)

Mr Me: You are Mrs Me.

(Mr Me proceeds to tie the loose ends of the white cloth up in knots.)

Mr Me: You are Mrs Me.
You are Mrs Me.

(driven insane, Mrs Me rips off the white cloth n tears off her dress.
lets hair fall down in a heap.)

Mrs Me: I am NOT Mrs Me.

(Mrs Me leaves)

(Mr Me is left forlornly trying to mend back the rips in his suit which were sustained in the struggle.)

Mr Me: I am Mr Me.
I am perfect.
I am 28 years old.
I have a high paying job.
I have the perfect wife.

The Knot (cont 5)

(Mr Me steps into the room. surveys the wreckage.
picks up a sharp needle, straddles the struggling Mrs Me,
attempts to control her.)

Mr Me: You are Mrs Me.

(Mr Me starts sewing her dress up. patching the torn parts.
pricking the needle into her skin n drawing blood)

(Mrs Me lets out a shrill scream. struggles harder)

(Mr Me ignores n frantically sews her together)

(they struggle. dress gets even more torn up)

(Mr Me picks up a bale of white cloth n drapes it around Mrs Me.
carries on sewing the cloth together, enclosing Mrs Me)

Mr Me: You are Mrs Me.
You are Mrs Me.

albert camus -- the outsider

for a man who has won the Nobel Prize,
he uses surprisingly easy-to-understand eng
(gd for dimwits like me. no dictionary flipping)
however, the subject matter that he dealt with is mind boggling
for starters, Camus is an existentialist.
(note: existentialism is a 20th-century philosophical movement;
assumes that people are entirely free and thus responsible for what they make of themselves)
Meursault is the main character
who is alienated by the society because of his unique personality.
he doesnt care abt social rules n conventions
who just does watever he wishes.(candid person)
n kind of get swept along by the sun
causing him to murder an Arab
which got him a death sentence.


Through Meursault's life experience, Albert Camus was trying to reveal that our society is often prejudiced against people who are different. Camus also wants to show us that although lying is thought to be morally incorrect, in reality society often does want us to lie.

(is that why i lie so much? *ponders*)

Camus warns us that society is often prejudice against people who are different. Instead of accepting them, we often exclude them. When we are prejudiced against someone, we will often misjudge his or her personality, nature and actions.
If we already have a negative image of that person, we will then expect the worst from him.


(different? exclude? hmm.....
hence im antisocial.
the less pple c me. the less they can judge me n tok bad abt me.)

Camus is also trying to show the ironic fact that society often claims to prefer the truth but in fact, the truth makes them uncomfortable and frightened. In most social situations people prefer to hear and tell lies in order to make their lives easier.

(hmm, is that y my theatre teacher is always hounding me to find the truth of my piece?
so that i may shake my audiences awake?
sad to say, my plays in the last 3 yrs r still all 'pretty looking'
sugar coated everything with a pinky filter b4 delivering to the aud.
too much 'toy factory' in me.
sigh,i have a long way to go.
i need to show the uglies
but have not found the 'socially acceptable' way of doing so)

oh well, Meursault the 'absurd hero'
u sure got me thinking.

its really a great bk.
u guys shld have a read.
its thinner than ur lit texts
n with simpler eng too
