A Teleconference: Camus' The Plague

"And since a dead man has no substance unless one actually sees him dead, a hundred million corpses broadcast through history are no more than a puff of smoke in the imagination."

             

"This is the time when those who have nothing to do venture out on the boulevards. Most of them determined to counteract the plague by a lavish display of luxury."

Albert Camus, THE PLAGUE
