Debates on the centrality of work

by Camus, A (1955)

Key Passage

It happens that the stage sets collapse. Rising, street-car, four hours in the office or the factory, meal, street-car,  four  hours  of  work,  meal,  sleep,  and  Monday  Tuesday  Wednesday  Thursday  Friday  and Saturday  according to  the  same  rhythm—this  path  is  easily  followed  most  of  the  time.  But  one day  the  "why"  arises  and  everything  begins  in  that  weariness  tinged  with  amazement.
