Reproaching Albert Camus The Plague in the times of novel Corona virus Pandemic
History is replete with incidents of pandemics like Influenza flu, Ebola, and now, the recent most novel Corona virus. The spread of these infectious beings is mostly fatal, highly explosive, and unmanageable, bringing with them severe social, economic, physiological and psychological impacts. Revisiting such historical events through literature is quite insightful. One feels empathetic and connected with the characters. This paper intends to revisit the settings and situations of Oran, the centre of pandemic in Albert Camus’ The Plague and compare it with the current, globally occurring, pandemic of Corona virus. The purpose is to understand how literature connects with real life and becomes a source of hope, strength and motivation for the readers.
