Unlock the more straightforward side of The Plague with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of The Plague by Albert Camus, an existentialist classic in which he continues to question the absurdity of life and applies the notion of rebellion. It is the story of a plague epidemic in the city of Oran in the 1940's and tells of the individual destinies of some of its inhabitants, who all react to the situation in a different way. The novel is believed to be based on the cholera epidemic that killed a large portion of Oran's population, or perhaps even the plague of the 16th and 17th centuries. Camus was a French author who was known for his thought-provoking novels and essays that often discussed fate, religion and philosophy, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1957 for his incredible works.
