What does Mersault want?

10 Oct

The StrangerI love it when an author tells us just exactly what his main character wants.  It happened in The Return of the Native, The Portrait of a Lady, and Native Son.

Let’s try to answer it for The Stranger.

What does Mersault want?

He doesn’t miss his mother

He’s not longing for true love.

He’s not wishing to be married.

He has no hankering for a successful career.

He’s not yearning for God.

Looks like Mersault wants nothing.
