Albert Camus who died in 1960 in an automobile accident was a French Algeria-born, French Nobel Prize winning author, journalist, and philosopher. His philosophy used to be known as absurdism.

    It's a grave that attracts attention by its simplicity, its character almost abandoned. I put a lot of time before you find it. No offense to the whiners, all camusienne dimension is the elegance of this stripping and free and wild herbs which run on this headstone. It would be misjudging Camus, man, his route and his work, that of indignant naively place where it is based. His relatives have been able to respect that.

    The grave seems to be the most neglected of all: weeds, iris uncleaned, lavender uncut, oleanders not pruned... everything seems abandoned. Even the stones Windpower! In this day of summer. 5/6 people showed up on the scene within minutes. General notice. Between these piles of stones and put it to the Hall of Fame, there is no margin? What lack of attention to her memory knowing that his family lives in the city. A few photos with no comments...

    What a shame! Whether it is the responsibility of Ms the daughter of Camus, or that of the Municipal Council of Lourmarin, there is what is called the "human respect". Even if the writer would have liked a simple grave, there is the minimum service that neither Ms. daughter Camus, nor the Town Hall is able to assume. Then let his memory to those who love him, transfer his ashes to the Pantheon. Thanks to foreign tourists who come to gather, and who must ask themselves the pettiness of the small french face their big men.
