The author came by this letter from Albert Camus addressed to Liselotte Dieckmann while at Washington University in St. Louis. Professor Dieckmann requested that it not be published until several years after her death which occurred in 1994. Camus was responding to Dieckmann's letter written in 1951 inquiring about the influence of Kafka on his work, prompted in part by a graduate student's interest in writing a dissertation on an aspect of the Camus-Kafka relationship. It is hoped that the publication of this letter will further the dialogue about the influence of Kafka, Melville, and others on Camus's work.
