you can read each of them independently from each other; they don't have any intersecting characters It's kind of a thematic trilogy from the novelistphilosopher Camus a way of fictionalizing a set of ideas about the world It was 1971 and I was committed after years of anti war fervor and the civil rights and women’s and the slowth growth of the environmental movement to Doing Good in the world to be a healer and not—to the extent I was able—a hurter That Michael Jackson Paul McCartney I'm a lover not a fighter distinction So many of us at my small religious college made commitments to teaching to social work public health The following uote was a kind of simple banner for me a flag for me to wave if only in my own heartAll I maintain is that on this earth there are pestilences and there are victims and it's up to us so far as possible not to join forces with the pestilences”—Tarrou in CamusAnd this “After a short silence the doctor raised himself a little in his chair and asked if Tarrou had an idea of the path to follow for attaining peace'Yes' he replied 'The path of sympathy'—Camus So I initially read this in the context of late sixties and early seventies activism within my hope for playing a small part in changing the world But Camus also wrote this in his own context as it was published in 1948 written in the aftermath of WWII the Holocaust the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki a kind of plague that stunned the planet where you had to make decisions about what side you were on and the choices were not always clear or easy The plague in one sense is ennui malaise passivity silence in the face of horror and as Camus makes clear we have to resist we have to act Set in Oran Algeria this novel chronicles a fictional plague that hits the town of 200k; they seal its borders and everyone has to figure out how to respond to it It’s like Kubler Ross’s five stages of grief; there is denial escapism rage terror grief despair all of it And several characters in the tale reveal different attitudes to the dying around them Selfishness the need to retreat into individual love and so on but there are some like Rieux and Tarrou who manage to commit to Doing Good in the face of death So The Plague in this book is both figurative and literal“But what does it mean the plague It's life that's all”—Tarrou But in the early going of this occasion of reading I was just a little annoyed at the Existentialist tract tone the This Is An Allegory On How One Must Live especially in the face of possible meaninglessness“Thus each of us had to be content to live only for the day alone under the vast indifference of the sky”—Camus I reminded myself that the writer was an Existential philosopher who was also writing novels and I worried he might be succumbing to abstraction I compared it to The Brothers Karamazov which Fyodor Dostoevsky identified as a “cultural forum” on different perspectives on life and the search for meaning But this range of perspectives I saw gradually emerge as well in The Plague in an inspiring and even thrilling away through and within and against the inevitable march to widespread death We come to care about the individuals in Rieux's world His mother Tarrou Dr Cattrel Cottard RambertI was also reminded as I read of Cormac McCarthy’s dystopian novel The Road where facing the probable end of civilization a father remains true to his commitment to his son and to principles of right and goodness The Plague is also a dystopian novel where ethical uestions about how one acts in the worst of times are crucial And it’s not easy to be vigilant and committed to Doing Good in the face of greed and terrorism and devastation of various kinds“But what are a hundred million deaths When one has served in a war one hardly knows what a dead man is after a while And since a dead man has no substance unless one has actually seen him dead a hundred million corpses broadcast through history are no than a puff of smoke in the imagination”—CamusAnd that point seems so prescient as we now face compassion fatigue over the multiplying global crises of climate change pandemics endless wars including a burgeoning refugee crisis But in his own version of what we now face post WWII a time in which we one could argue narrowly averted the end of humankind Rieux keeps doing his work with the dying working to find a cure; he's not a hero not a saint just one man holding that proverbial candle in the wind rolling that boulder up the hill only to expect it to come down again“The language he used was that of a man who was sick and tired of the world he lived in—though he had much liking for his fellow men—and had resolved for his part to have no truck with injustice and compromises with the truth”—CamusAnd this inspiring paragraph “And it was in the midst of shouts rolling against the terrace wall in massive waves that waxed in volume and duration while cataracts of colored fire fell thicker through the darkness that Dr Rieux resolved to compile this chronicle so that he should not be one of those who hold their peace but should bear witness in favor of those plague stricken people; so that some memorial of the injustice and outrage done them might endure; and to state uite simply what we learn in time of pestilence that there are things to admire in men than to despise”—CamusAs in The Road the message is clear“A loveless world is a dead world”—CamusSo I also read this book in a contemporary context with all its turmoil and dangers Yet another plague year So I'm glad I read it re inspired for the moment; it might fade to face the worst to act in love when I can manage to resist passivity and bitterness and silence to be part of the commitment to healing movements with others to the very end I’m no saint that’s obvious but I’ll do what I can Though in occasional moments I also consider just saying What the hell let's forget about all that and have a drink Eat drink and be merry READ & DOWNLOAD â E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Albert Camus
