Question
Hi
I am a researcher and I have to prepare a research about The Plague = La Peste (Author: Albert Camus). I need full text of this book. Where can I find it?
I have searched a lot but I couldn't find the full text of this book.
If you help me I'll be pleased.
My email is: nice2018@yahoo.com
Thank you


Answer
That book is still under copyright and will be for a long time to come. (The European Union extends copyright for 70 years after the death of the author). Hence you are unlikely to find the complete text on the Web; and anyone who posted it there did so illegally, making the accuracy of the text somewhat questionable.

If you need the book in electronic form to do your research, I suggest that you buy a copy and scan it/OCR it yourself, or pay a service to scan and OCR.

You can buy the book (in French) at http://www.schoenhofs.com/

Best wishes.
