Resumen:

Arthur Koestler's timeless classic, first published in 1941, is a powerful and haunting portrait of a Soviet revolutionary who is imprisoned and tortured under Stalin's rule. Set during Stalin's Moscow show trials of the 1930s, "Darkness at Noon "is an unforgettable portrait of an aging revolutionary, Nicholas , who is imprisoned and psychologically tortured by the very Party to which he has dedicated his life. As the pressure increases to confess to committing preposterous crimes, he re-lives a career that embodies the terrible ironies and human betrayals of a totalitarian movement masking itself as an instrument of deliverance. Posing questions about ends and means, the story has relevance not only for the past, but for the perilous present.
