Darkness at Noonby Harold Bloom
Set in the turbulent Soviet Union of the 1930s, Darkness at Noon tells the story of its Jewish hero and protagonist, Nikolai Salmanovich Rubashov. Unjustly accused of treason, Rubashov is forced to endure the nightmare of imprisonment and eventual execution for the crime with which he is charged. Rubashov's tragedy is that of an intellectual insider suddenly made outsider to the party he once supported. Through a series of interrogations by Ivanov, a former comrade in arms, and Gletkin, a young zealot, Rubashov is forced to examine the consequences of his previous adherence to a doctrine dedicated to its own fulfillment at all costs to ethics and freedom.
