Reading The Plague Part Three – January 10 🗓

Reading The Plague Part Three – Next Session this Sunday January 10 at 4pm

 
Dear all,
 
The Plague Plays  Reading Group resumes this Sunday.
 
I’m looking forward to our exploration of Parts 3 & 4 of the Plague!
 
Please don’t worry if you aren’t able to complete the assigned reading as we will read the script version together for part of the time and this provides rich material for discussion whether you’ve read the novel sections or not.
 
I’ve attached a LRB review of the Plague and its contemporary significance. [Jacqueline Rose · Pointing the Finger_ ‘The Plague’ · LRB 7 May 2020]
We’ve delved into the characters of Tarrou and Rieux in previous discussions. This week I would love to focus on an often neglected character – Cottard – the ‘criminal’. Cottard is described as a man who eschews all responsibility to fight the plague. Tarrou goes so far as to call him an “accomplice” of the plague.
 
Considering the plague literally, or as a metaphor as Camus described it, for fascism, what do you think of the way in which Cottard profits from the plague, seems at ease within it.
 
I think it may also be interesting to consider the regime of rules that arise to combat the plague and our own relationships of cooperation, conformity, and resistance..to both the rules and the plague.
 
Looking forward to connecting on Sunday over Camus.
