From 1348 to 1350 Europe was devastated by an epidemic that left between a third and one half of the population dead. This source book traces, through contemporary writings, the calamitous impact of the Black Death in Europe, with a particular emphasis on its spread across England from 1348 to 1349. Rosemary Horrox surveys contemporary attempts to explain the plague, which was universally regarded as an expression of divine vengeance for the sins of humankind. Moralists all had their particular targets for criticism. However, this emphasis on divine chastisement did not preclude attempts to explain the plague in medical or scientific terms. Also, there was a widespread belief that human agencies had been involved, and such scapegoats as foreigners, the poor and Jews were all accused of poisoning wells. The final section of the book charts the social and psychological impact of the plague, and its effect on the late-medieval economy.

«Camus irrt sich nicht in seinem Roman. Das Drama sind nicht die, die durch die Hintertür zum Friedhof entwischen – und für die die Angst vor der Pest endlich vorbei war –, sondern die Lebenden, die in ihren stickigen Schlafzimmern Blut schwitzten, ohne der belagerten Stadt entfliehen zu können.» (Gabriel García Márquez) Die Stadt Oran wird von rätselhaften Ereignissen heimgesucht. Die Ratten kommen aus den Kanälen und verenden auf den Straßen. Kurze Zeit später sterben die ersten Menschen an einem heimtückischen Fieber: Die Pest wütet in der Stadt. Oran wird hermetisch abgeriegelt. Ein Entkommen ist nicht möglich. Albert Camus’ erfolgreichster Roman gehört zu den Klassikern der Weltliteratur. In ihm seziert er hellsichtig das menschliche Handeln im Angesicht einer Katastrophe.

The Plague is Albert Camus's world-renowned fable of fear and courage 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. 'A matchless fable of fear, courage and cowardice' Independent 'Magnificent'The Times Albert Camus was born in Algeria in 1913. He studied philosophy in Algiers and then worked in Paris as a journalist. He was one of the intellectual leaders of the Resistance movement and, after the War, established his international reputation as a writer. His books include The Plague, The Just and The Fall, and he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. Camus was killed in a road accident in 1960.
