5.0 out of 5 stars An important book of the 20th century., 20 July 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Plague (Twentieth Century Classics) (Paperback)
Camus is one of the greatest polemicist of this century and combines the tragedy of the plague with the tragedy of France under German occupation this novel details the seperation of Oran and Frances separation from the outside world. Although I am a newcomer to Camus his thoughts and his depth of writing convey the alienation of his first noel the outsider with modern european history. his major success is conveying this theme of alienation toa wider setting of a town at odds with society in comparison with the individual at odds in the outsider. The desolation in the novel is used through a sympathetic narrator who recalls the events of the plague and the madness and absurdity of this calamity with the resulting effects on the towns population as the plague takes its toll on the town. The narrator is also given an important element of abstraction from the plague while dealing with it simultaneously, thus adding to the alienation and general helplessness that runs through the book. A classic in its time and one that will last forever and should not be left to lain dormant.
