The Plague

Movie or TV Productions

1992 Movie
La Peste, a movie based on Camus’s novel. Either they didn’t read the book or they took some liberties, because this one takes place in the 1990s in South America.


This is Camus
As in, the man. On film. The soccer is just background (but did you see that sweet pass?).


The Author

Behold, Albert Camus.

Two Plus Two Equals Four

We are really into this quote. Apparently so is everybody else.


The bacteria that gives you bubonic plague.


What’s all this talk of buboes, anyway? (Warning: this picture is kind of gross.)


The Existential Primer: Camus

A great introduction to Camus and his philosophy.

"BOOKS OF THE TIMES; Camus as a Principled Rebel Among Poseurs"

Sartre a poseur? Surely you must be joking.
