In the book The Stranger by Albert Camus the main character Meursault has a lot of movements. In these movements he shows his emotions or does some thing unexpected. One of Meursault’s movements is when he kills the Arab. The song Killing an Arab by The cure is related to Meursault’s movement. Meursault always seems to mention the weather. “I was walking slowly towards the rocks and I could feel my forehead swelling under the sun (Camus 57).” Meursault seems to get bothered by the weather and gets upset when it is hot. “Staring at the sun.” In the song they mention that he is staring at the sun which proves that the heat and the sun does bother him. “It occurred to me that all I had to do was turn around and that would be the end of it (58).” Before he shoots the Arab he thinks about it and says that all he has to do is turn around and everything would be over or he could shoot the Arab. He had two choices. In the song they mention “I can turn and walk away or I can fire the gun.” “Whichever I chose it amounts to the same absolutely nothing.” In the song it mentions that what ever decision he makes it means the same to him which is absolutely nothing. In the song they keep on singing “I'm alive I'm dead I'm the stranger.” They keep on saying that to let us know that he does not care that either he is a live or dead the main thing is that he is a stranger who no one really seems to know. “I felt the smooth underside of the butt (59).” Meursault mentions how he feels after he shoots the Arab first time. And in the song they say “I feel the steel butt jump smooth in my hand.” In both the story and the song they mention same situation and also mention tha same feelings.
