Abstract:Romana Kuga in Esej o slepoti je mogoče interpretirati kot alegoriji. Prikazujeta odsotnost moralnih vrednot in padec človeštva. Ljudje soočeni z nalezljivima boleznima, grozo in vsesplošno negotovostjo ne zmorejo narediti koraka eden k drugemu, pač pa v danih razmerah gledajo le nase, za tegobe drugih jim ni mar. Ob napadu kuge oziroma slepote se pokažejo bolezenski znaki družbe. Tako lahko opazimo ravnodušnost nekaterih posameznikov do sočloveka, neupravičene umore, nasilje vseh oblik, željo po nadzoru nad posameznikom oziroma nad skupino ljudi, neodzivnost oblasti ob nevšečnostih … Čeprav prednjačijo negativni odzivi in ravnanja, pa v obeh romanih najdemo osebe, ki tvorijo jedro pripovedi in se bolj ali manj aktivno vključujejo v boj proti zlu. So nazorni primeri, na kakšen način se je mogoče zoperstaviti zlu, ki jih obdaja. Zavedajo se, da individualizem ne pomaga, zato kolektivno nastopijo proti bolezni. Epidemiji kuge in slepote na eni strani močno poslabšata pogoje za življenje, na drugi strani pa omogočata, da posamezniki spremenijo svoj odnos do življenja in sočloveka. Obojim je skupno to, da poskušajo vztrajati v absurdni situaciji. Bolezen ni premagana zaradi njih, ampak se sčasoma umakne sama od sebe, ostaja pa vprašanje ali je kaj spremenila. Pripovedi od bralca zahtevata razmislek o temeljih etičnega sistema v sodobni družbi.
Keywords:Albert Camus, José Saramago, kuga, slepota, alegorija, (ne)morala, razčlovečenje, kolektivnost.

Title:A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF CAMUS'S THE PLAGUE AND SARAMAGO'S ESSAY ON BLINDNESS
Abstract:Both novels, The Plague as well as Blindness can be interpreted as allegories. They show an absence of moral values and a collapse of the humankind. People, faced with contagious diseases, horror and all-pervasive uncertainty are unable to come close to each other. Contrary; they see only themselves and do not mind the ailments of other people. The attacks of the plague and the blindness reveal all the symptoms of the sickness of the society. The reader can notice the indifference of individuals towards other human beings, unjustified killings, all kinds of violence, the desire to control the individual or even the whole groups of people, the unresponsiveness of the government, etc. Although the negative responds and actions are put in the forefront, both novels also introduce the characters who present the crux of the narrative and more or less actively fight against evil. They are an illustrative example of how an individual can retaliate against the evil that surrounds them. They are aware that individualism does not help and therefore collectively respond to diseases. The epidemics of the plague and the blindness on one hand worsen the living conditions, while on the other hand enable the individual to change their attitude to life and other human beings. The protagonists have in common the fact that they try to persist in absurd circumstances. Diseases are not defeated because of them, but are eventually withdrawn by themselves. The question which remains is whether the diseases have changed anything. Both narratives expect the reader to think about the fundamental moral system in a modern society.
Keywords:Albert Camus, José Saramago, plague, blindness, allegory, (im)morality, dehumanisation, collectivity.
