You might find useful Michel Tournier's novel
"Friday", which gives a good glimpse of absolute

confronted to it.
What I liked most is the reversal of roles, whereby
the savage, Friday, takes control of Robinson's life. 
They also made a movie starring Sir Lawrence Olivier.

Let me write my favourite citation of the book:
" Face is that part of our flesh which is continuously
modelled , heatened and animated by the presence of
our fellows. A person which has just left someone with
whom he had a productive conversation preserves on his
face an obvious joy gradually fading in time; that
flame will light up again when he finds another real
