Écrits libertaires (1948-1960) by Albert Camus

By Albert Camus

Justice pour Albert Camus, dont les écrits libertaires n’ont été identifiés que tardivement – ses œuvres complètes et ses biographes les ont longtemps ignorés. Cette méconnaissance a faussé nos idées sur l’écrivain préféré des Français. Son sang espagnol – par sa mère – a battu à l’unisson des anarcho-syndicalistes de ce will pay. Il sentait, « vivant en lui », Bakounine, le père russe de l’anarchie. Quant au « génie libertaire », il y trouva sa raison d’être.

Justice pour Lou Marin, le chercheur allemand qui a exhumé ces textes disséminés dans des revues en France, en Espagne, en Allemagne, en Argentine… vehicle c’est lui le vrai découvreur du Camus libertaire. Justice enfin pour Claire Auzias, l’éditrice d’Égregores, l. a. première à avoir publié cette anthologie et à qui Indigène s’associe pour donner à ces textes indomptables une plus huge diffusion, avec l’accord de Catherine Camus.
