During the 1940s a plague descends on the Algerian town of Oran. Like the German occupation of France in the second world war, this plague too brings its terror while also inspiring a courageous resistance. But the plague is more than a parable. It is also a tale of natural calam...ity: a slaughter as absurd as the habits it supercedes. And it is this uniformity of the absurd, 'the same thing over and over again' that lies at the heart of Camus's conception of things.
