Summary ì The Plague (Penguin Essentials) ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook 'A story for our and all times' Guardian The Plague is Albert Camus's world renowned fable of fear and courageThe townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague which condemns its victims to a swift and horrifying death Fear isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into uarantine Each person responds in their own way to the lethal disease some resign themselves to fate some seek blame and a few like Dr Rieux resist the terrorAn immediate triumph when it was published in 1947 The Plague is in part an allegory of France's suffering under the Nazi occupation and a story of bravery and determination against the precariousness of human existence'A matchless fable of fear courage and cowardice' Independent'Magnificent' The Times. I last read or rather studied this as an exam text in French some 50 years ago I had a Penguin paperback translation long since lost and I wondered whether the English text would stand the test of time It does It s as compelling now as it was when I first read it On the one hand it s a personal journey about disease control But look a little deeper and it s a multi layered tale which explores the human condition and is a metaphorical comment on the German occupation of FranceFrom a 21st century perspective it s striking that there are no female characters And no Arabs That aside I enjoyed revisiting this title

Bought on the recommendation of my son during the Covid 19 lockdown it might not immediately seem like the book to be reading at this time but actually it was two thingsFirstly the story read straight is remarkably similar to the current circumstances and I found myself repeatedly taken aback by how some of the psychological impact of this was reflected in the book It was somehow uite reassuring to know that what you thought and felt were normal in this abnormal time Not least where you re expected to be strong and carry on which makes talking about the strangeness harderSecondly it s a beautifully written book and of course is an allegory As such it s even striking how it captures the thoughts and emotions of those in lockdownIt is an intentionally philosophical book and sometimes a little heavy handed But the story raises a whole range of ethical moral and human uestions without unduly hammering home the author s beliefsI found it very striking If I hadn t experience lockdown for Covid 19 I m not sure I would have found it as compelling or believable I m really glad I read it and recommend it

I am not too sure when I first read this book but it was many many years ago and I still love to return to it for yet another re reading Personally for me this is my favourite of Camus work and there is a lot of the author here in various charactersFirst published in 1947 although popular it did have its detractors and made many ask awkward uestions at their and other s roles in the War both because it defied the official position and did not set out to condemn those who were collaborators Since then this has always remained in print and has been admired by manySet in Oran in the Forties so we can see this is an allegory of France and the way things went in the Second World War That is the usual stance that people take with this but in many ways this can be a bit simplistic because you could argue that this takes in the Holocaust and indeed any other situation where conditions occur that are outside of our control such as the plague here or even nowadays you could say BrexitOur narrator remains unidentified at the beginning of this but we do know who it is by the end although to be honest you should have worked out who it is long before then Although set in Oran the coastal town in Algeria we only hear from the white European community thus reinforcing the purpose of this and what the allegory refers to With plague coming upon the town so the place has restrictions placed upon it and thus people are trapped in the town separated from friends family and loved onesSo we follow the characters here as they come to certain decisions and carry out these and we see the conseuences With some biblical overtones so some of the characters attitudes alter and thus the human condition is brought to life Of course there are people who are in desperation and expect others to do any work and there are others that have ideas and demands but don t actually want to do the hard work that these would create And finally we have those who just uietly get on with things the heroes of this if you like who are not after anything but want to get things back to normal as uickly and efficiently as possibleThis always makes me think of this country and what would happen with an epidemic After all we were not ready for World War Two although a EU Referendum was held there turned out to be no plans for leaving and with the flu over the end of last year hospitals found themselves overstretched In all then this is well worth reading and makes you ponder what you would do in times of trouble and how you would help others or not Ambiguous in that no one is set up here as a hero and in that there is no ultimate message this is very thoughtful and would make a good choice for book groups
