From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
This guy appears at Meursault's trial in Part II, Chapter Three. He's a young reporter wearing gray flannels and a blue tie who studies Meursault intently with his very bright eyes... betraying exactly zero emotion. Meursault confesses that this gives him "the odd impression of being watched by [him]self." With that subtlety, we note that this calm young reporter represents either Meursault or Albert Camus—either way, dude's an Absurdist.
