A gripping tale of human unrelieved horror, of survival and resilience, and of the ways in which humankind confronts death, The Plague is at once a masterfully crafted novel, eloquently understated and epic in scope, and a parable of ageless moral resonance, profoundly relevant to our times. In Oran, a coastal town in North Africa, the plague begins as a series of portents, unheeded by the people. It gradually becomes a omnipresent reality, obliterating all traces of the past and driving its victims to almost unearthly extremes of suffering, madness, and compassion.

Albert Camus' work delivers profound descriptions using language of the most exquisite kind. The Plague will never die; it will lay dormant and one day it will start over and mankind will fight it once again. This is a great read and deserves the accolades it has received over the seventy years since it’s birth.
