The Plague (Penguin classic)

Afbeelding van The Plague (Penguin classic)

Beschrijving

The 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 quarantine, each responding in their own way to the lethal bacillus: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame and a few, like Dr Rieux, resist the terror. An immediate triumph when it was published in 1947, Camus’s novel is in part an allegory for France’s suffering under Nazi occupation, and also a story of bravery and determination against the precariousness of human existence.
‘An impressive new translation … of this matchless fable of fear, courage and cowardice’
Independent
Translated by Robin Buss with an Introduction by Tony Judt
