In the book "The Rebel", the chapter "Revolt and Art" shows the ethical and metaphysical meaning of the novel which, in its own creative movement, proposes the "correction" of the real world so that man finds the limits and the form that would assign a meaning to the their experiences; Once Camus sees a form that suggests another value to human life in the artistic activity, the aesthetic creation is then constituted as a supreme activity by which man confers meaning to the existence marked by the absurd. From there on, we intend to investigate the relationship between ethics and aesthetics in the Camusian thinking and its implications for a possible theory of the novel in Camus. (AU)
