During Stalin's purges, Nicholas Rubashov, an aging revolutionary, is imprisoned and phychologically tortured by the party he has devoted his life to. Under mounting pressure to confess crimes he did not commit, Rubashov relives a career that embodies the ironies and betrayals of a revolutionary dictatorship that believes it is an instrument of liberation. A seminal work of the twentieth-century literature, "Darkness at noon" is a penetrating exploration of the moral danger inherent in a system that is willing to enforce its beliefs by any means necessary.
