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 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 TERROR. AN 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.

About the Author

Albert Camus was born in Algeria in 1913. His childhood was poor, although not unhappy. He studied philosophy at the University of Algiers, and became a journalist as well as organizing the Théâtre de léquipe, a young avant-garde dramatic group. His early essays were collected in LEnvers et lendroit (The Wrong Side and the Right Side) and ces (Nuptials). He went to Paris, where he worked on the newspaper Paris Soir before returning to Algeria. His play, Caligula, appeared in 1939. His first two important books, LEtranger (The Outsider) and the long essay Le Mythe de Sisyphe (The Myth of Sisyphus), were published when he returned to Paris. After the occupation of France by the Germans in 1941, Camus became one of the intellectual leaders of the Resistance movement. He edited and contributed to the underground newspaper Combat, which he had helped to found. After the war he devoted himself to writing and established an international reputation with such books as La Peste (The Plague 1947), Les Justes (The Just 1949) and La Chute (The Fall; 1956). During the late 1950s Camus renewed his active interest in the theatre, writing and directing stage adaptations of William Faulkners Requiem for a Nun and Dostoyevskys The Possessed. He was awarded the bel Prize for Literature in 1957. He was killed in a road accident in 1960. His last novel, Le Premier Homme (The First Man), unfinished at the time of his death, appeared for the first time in 1994. An instant bestseller, the book received widespread critical acclaim, and has been translated and published in over thirty countries. Much of Camuss work is available in Penguin. Sartre paid tribute to him in his obituary notice: Camus could never cease to be one of the principal forces in our cultural domain, nor to represent, in his own way, the history of France and of this century.
