Albert Camus' The Plague: A Novel for All Seasons

ID : 861   
« back to classes page
Albert Camus (1913-1960) published La Peste (The Plague) in 1947.  He had been writing his novel for some six years encompassing the events of the Second World War and many readers were inclined to interpret it as an allegory for the German Occupation of France.  But The Plague remains a novel of ideas and its philosophical bent allows it to transcend a given historical situation.  This course will test its appeal to today’s audience.  Does The Plague provide us with a message for dealing with our own times?  Listen to Camus and draw your own conclusions.
