"Les curieux événements qui font le sujet de cette chronique se sont produits en 194., à Oran. De l’avis général, ils n’y étaient pas à leur place, sortant un peu de l’ordinaire.

"Tämä tuotti alkuun itselleni hieman vaikeuksia. Camuksen melkoisen etäännyttävä tyyli ja kertojan maltillisen rationaalinen suhtautuminen ympärillään tapahtuviin hirveyksiin aiheutti sen, että ruton aiheuttamat kauheudet eivät tahtoneet välittyä kirjan sivuilta sillä voimalla kuten niiden odottaisi. Mutta toisaalta, pidemmälle lukiessa tämän lähestymistavan valitsemiseen löytyy myös oikeasti pätevät syynsä kokonaisuuden kannalta, joten kokemus jäi lopulta vähän kaksijak"
