The Plague

The Plague

by Albert Camus

The Prefect

Character Analysis

The Prefect is an indecisive man of, well, inaction. Dr. Rieux practically has to beat this guy over the head to get him to do anything about the plague, never mind admitting to the populace that a horse is a horse, or in this case, that a horse has a severe case of THE PLAGUE.
