Description

During the 1940s a plague descends on the Algerian town of Oran. Like the German occupation of France in the second world war, this plague too brings its terror while also inspiring a courageous resistance. But the plague is more than a parable. It is also a tale of natural calamity: a slaughter as absurd as the habits it supercedes. And it is this uniformity of the absurd, 'the same thing over and over again' that lies at the heart of Camus's conception of things.

Author Biography

Albert Camus is the author of a number of best-selling and highly influential works, all of which are published by Penguin. They include THE FALL, THE OUTSIDER and THE FIRST MAN. He is remembered as one of the few writers to have shaped the intellectual climate of post-war France, but beyond that, his fame has been international.
