Caligula; Cross Purpose; The Just; The Possessed
Camus's four philosophical dramas illustrate the significant shift in his perception of the human condition. Caligula reveals some aspects of the existential notion of 'the absurd' by portraying an emperor so monstrous that in his se arch for freedom he destroys gods, men and himself. Cross Purpose protrays a universe in which creul, inexplicable things happen to innocent and evil alike. By the time of the overtly political plays, The Just and The Possessed, Camus dramitzes action and revolt in the name of liberty.
