The Stranger

What do you think Meursault means in the last sentence?

Last Sentence "I had only to wish that there be a large croed of spectators the day of my executionand that they greet me with cries of hate".

Meursault's existential noir continues to the very end of the story. Although he felt much of his life to be meaningless, a crowd would at least amuse him at his execution. The irony of his meaningless death draws the crowed into frenzy. Mersault would think this would be rather funny.
