The townspeople of Oran are in the grip of a deadly plague, which condemns its victims to a swift and horrifying death. Fear, isolation and claustrophobia follow as they are forced into quarantine. Each person responds in their own way to the lethal disease: some resign themselves to fate, some seek blame, and a few, like Dr. Rieux, resist the terror. An immediate triumph when it was published in 1947, "The Plague" is in part an allegory of France's suffering under the Nazi occupation, and a story of bravery and determination against the precariousness of human existence.

Jeśli ktoś kiedyś powie mi, że można żyć bez snu, chyba zrobię temu komuś wielką krzywdę. Bardzo wielką. Bo się nie da. Ja, bardzo mądra dziewoja próbowałam. Bo nagle okazało się, że po nauce i wszystkich innych czynnościach związanych z domem i rodziną, trochę zaczęło mi brakować czasu na tak długi...

The plague has arrived in Oran, Algeria. As each day passes, the townspeople endure horror after horror. Unable to leave the city, they are separated from loved ones who had left before the quarantine or who have died. Food becomes scarce even though the rich, as always, have enough. Month after mon...
