Myth of Sisyphus

by Camus, A (1955)

Key Passage

The gods had condemned Sisyphus to ceaselessly rolling a rock to the top of a mountain, whence the stone  would  fall  back  of  its  own  weight.  They  had  thought  with  some  reason  that  there  is  no  more dreadful punishment than futile and hopeless labor. If  one  believes  Homer,  Sisyphus  was  the  wisest  and  most  prudent  of  mortals (p.88)
