Abstract [en]

This essay places Albert Camus´play Caligula (written before the war, first performance in 1945) in the framework of the writer´s philosophical development between "the philosophy of the absurd" and "the philosophy of the revolt". Its dependence upon Suetonius´portrait of Caligula in De Vita Caesarum is taken into account. A close reading is given of the play with particular emphasis on such key issues as death and power, seen against the background of Camus´ ideas in his famous essay The Myth of Sisyphos.
