The themes in the Albert Camuss The Plague and Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen are rather interesting The central theme in The Plague is suffering itself which crushes the people of Oran physically and spiritually The plague is described as force of evil is the main cause of the suffering The main theme for Hedda Gabler can be described as a conflict between society and the individual She wants freedom but she feels that she cannot leave her marriage To occupy her time she manipulates the lives of everyone around her Through the use of theme Ibsen produced work that uniquely portrays the sources of the motivations of the manipulative woman There is a lot of foreshadowing in the beginning of the plague Camus explains Orans future reaction to the devastating plague Dr Rieux seizes the readers interest and depicts a city soon to be affected by death DrRieux by delineating the town its people their habits and beliefs and his personal methods sets the stage for his narrative and gives the reader a small view of the horrible fate soon to come Dr Rieux also he talks about the difficulty of giving up habits and routines The citizens all have habits that are repeated daily They all work hard but not for ethical or moral reasons Their unawareness of lifes riches and pleasures demonstrate their susceptibility to the plague They disconcert themselves with matters not involving money Not knowing what life entails more than work and habits sets the theme of the book Another theme is the value of human life Dr Rieux acknowledges that man cannot overcome death Dr Rieux continues by describing the difficulty the people experiencing death in Oran As the plague claims thousands of lives the citizens have difficulty dying in a small quarantined city Both the living and the dead are trapped behind the town walls They cannot escape the plagues destruction The reader can definitely see the future
