Albert Camus’ The Plague As Political Allegory
[ send me this essay ]
The Plague by Albert Camus is not generally considered as a political treatise but, rather, as a philosophical work on the subject of ethics. Camus believes that the evils that lie in wait for the unsuspecting can be battled through knowledge and the ability to learn from the mistakes of history. This 5 page critique argues that the reactions of most when confronted by something as insidious and seemingly natural as the plague and, or, fascism is fear; and fear tends to make followers out of people. The denial that evolves from fear assists those seeking power to intimidate and control. No additional sources are listed.

Fascism, Rats and The Plague
[ send me this essay ]
The Plague by Albert Camus is a thinly disguised treatise against the totalitarian states of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. The analogy of the plague as compared with the encroachment and devastating effect of these political forces is obvious, given the time of the writing and the known views of the author. This 8 page paper suggests that there also exists a comparison between the rats that brought the plague and fascist philosophy. The question is asked: How is the return of the rats interpreted through the fascist philosophy as presented by Giovanni Gentile? To answer this, the first section gives background information on Fascism, the second section deals with Gentile and his philosophies and the final section looks at the metaphor of the rat as presented in The Plague. Bibliography lists 9 sources.
