    Albert Camus The Plague is a laugh RIOT Just kidding, it is about the bubonic plague, really not very funny at all However, it is a modern masterpiece of allegory, symbolism and imagery The surface story is about plague in the early 1940s visiting the Algerian coastal city of Oran While Camus tells a complete tale of disease, fear, despair, compassion and selfless heroism the story of lasting significance is told between the lines with insightful observations and thought provoking disserta Albert Camus The Plague is a laugh RIOT Just kidding, it is about the bubonic plague, really not very funny at all However, it is a modern masterpiece of allegory, symbolism and imagery The surface story is about plague in the early...

    If you lived in an ordinary community quite unexpectedly facing an existential stress test, what would you do How would you deal with the situation, and which character traits of yours would all of a sudden come to the surface How would you treat your friends, neighbours and fellow citizens What would you do to change the situation These questions have been haunting me ever since I first read La Peste in school, over two decades ago I have reread it since then, with the same fascination, If you lived in an ordinary community quite unexpectedly facing an existential stress test, what would you do How would you deal with the situation, and which character traits of yours would all of a sudden come to the surface How would you treat your friends, neighbours and fellow citizens What would you do to change the situation These questions have been haunting me ever since I first read La Peste in school, over two decades ago I have reread it since then, with the same fascination, and with growing compassion and understanding for the less heroic characters and t...

    I read The Plague right after reading Swann s Way Of course it wasn t a deliberate move But as I moved on, I realized that reading of The Plague had rendered something quite remarkable in the way I realized and appreciated both works Both works embody a reality Swann s Way speaks of the reality that is long gone by and one wish to remember and cherish, whereas, The Plague makes oneacutely aware of the bleakness of actual reality when imposed through an epidemic such as plague I read The Plague right after reading Swann s Way Of course it wasn t a deliberate move But as I moved on, I realized that reading of The Plague had rendered something quite remarkable in the way I realized and appreciated both works Both works embody a reality Swann s Way speaks of the reality that is long gone by and one wish to remember and cherish, whereas, The Plague makes oneacutely aware of the bleakness of actual reality when imposed through an epidemic such as plague This book speaks of the things that are, rather than things that were Swann s way had left me completely mesmerized, longing for the bygones But The Plague left me assessing the actual approach which governs human beings when faced with discomforts in life.The first thing that st...

    This was as much an existentialist tract as it was a book about the descent of a town into plague, the gradient of the decline increasing exponentially until they reach the pit There it is death and smoke and groans and every bit the imagined hell of those with a religious consciousness.But the plague has no relationship to religion The innocent die as much as the guilty Shady people are sly by night, criminals escape justice, the great and the good die in their beds, the plague is the great This was as much an existentialist tract as it was a book about the descent of a town into plague, the gradient of the decline increasing exponentially until they reach the pit There it is death and smoke and groans and every bit the imagined hell of those with a religious consciousness.But the plague has no relationship to religion The innocent die as much as the guilty Shady people are sly by night, criminals escape justice, the great and the good die in their beds, the plague is the great equalizer Thi...

    Somehow Camus brings humanism, optimism and the role of love to a depressing story of bubonic plaque in 1940 s Oran, Algeria First all the rats die and then we go from there After much bureaucratic bungling and delays, the city is cut off from the outside world by quarantine A lot of the focus of the story is on those separated by chance from loved ones for several months There is intrigue as some plot to esca...

    Second reading This is an essential book If there s a canon, The Plague belongs in it A few things interested me this time through Mostly the narrator s penchant, most effective, for writing about the town s collective mood This device struck me as an improvement on the Soviet worker novels of the day 1947 The prose is not pumped up to triumphalist proportions There must be a scholar somewhere who s addresses this I ll have to search LC Neither is there an idealized superman worker, Second reading This is an essential book If there s a canon, The Plague belongs in it A few things interested me this time through Mostly the narrator s penchant, most effective, for writing about the town s collec...
