Summary This chapter situates Camus' Hellenism in the context of other French modernists in literature. It examines Camus' youthful Hellenism, rooted in his own experiences growing up in French Algeria. It then examines the philosophical dimensions of his defence of classical mesure, in the context of the 20th century European disaster. It also looks at his reading of Greek tragedy, and his key contrast of Prometheus as rebel, with Satan.
