In response to the global pandemic of Covid-19, many people have turned to literature as a source of inspiration and reflection on pandemics and political life. In this new podcast, Trevor Shelly and Luke Perez of the School of Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership at Arizona State University discuss Albert Camus' novel, The Plague, which fictionalizes an outbreak of bubonic plague in the North African town of Oran. In this episode, Trevor and Luke discuss Part 1 of the novel. Key characters and themes are introduced as the town is besieged, first by dead rats all over the city, and subsequently by the realization that after centuries, the plague has returned.
