"La Peste" ("The Plague") by Albert Camus

La Peste:

Albert Camus publie La Peste en 1947 au lendemain de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Il y relate une épidémie de peste qui aurait sévi en 1940 à Oran. Au fil des pages, on assiste à l'extension progressive de la maladie et on observe la réaction de chacun face à l'épidémie : certains fuient, d'autres restent pour lutter. À travers ce roman, l'écrivain invite à réfléchir sur les valeurs de solidarité et d'engagement.

The Plague:

A novel by Albert Camus, published in 1947, that tells the story of a plague sweeping the Algerian city of Oran. It asks a number of questions relating to the nature of destiny and the human condition. The characters in the book, ranging from doctors to vacationers to fugitives, all help to show the effects the plague has on a populace.
