The Stranger Writing Style

Clear, distinct, deliberate

Frivolous language is absent, but Camus's descriptions are meticulous. With this painstaking attention to detail, we get everything from the roundness of Marie’s breasts to the type of green in the evening sky. The sentences are clipped, the vocabulary simple. At times, it even seems childlike, but there are also moments of profound clarity and expressiveness.
