Does Camus show that all suicide is an evil?

What if the the girl in The Fall is about to be captured, repeatedly raped, maimed and tortured?

Is it only the insane, or even weak, who would not choose that fate?

    Welcome to Philosophy.SE. Recall that Camus said Sisyphus, who is condemned to an eternity of struggling against a stone, should be happy. He may well say the same of someone about to experience the sort of suffering you describe. – commando Nov 15 '16 at 3:06
  • You can see Suicide as a Response to Absurdity. – Mauro ALLEGRANZA Nov 16 '16 at 8:58
