Albert Camus

Your Literary Style Is 0% Realistic, 0% Philosophical, and 0% Psychological!

Your literary style most resembles Albert Camus'. Camus was a French writer who was heavily influenced by existential philosophy. All of his work is very philosophical and concerned with existential issues such as the meaning of life and the possibility of morals without God. Camus was also a very cerebral writer, examining the thoughts and feelings of his characters in order to bring out his existential philosophy. His characters frequently ponder their situations and the absurdity of their lives, making them very vivid psychological portraits. Unlike most philosophical writers, of course, Camus' style is also very realistic and tends to avoid allegories or symbolism in favor of a true representation of existence through a study of a character's psyche. Your literary style is similar to his because your stories are realistic, psychological studies which emphasize intellectual issues in philosophy.
