Product Description

About the Author

Juif hongrois ne a Budapest en 1905, Arthur Koestler fait ses etudes a Vienne, puis devient journaliste en Palestine. Revenu en Europe, il adhere au Parti communiste allemand, trouvant la une reponse a la menace nazie, mais egalement seduit par l'utopie sovietique. Il part un an en URSS, puis participe a la guerre civile espagnole. A partir de 1938, ayant rompu avec le Parti communiste, il combattra sans relache le regime stalinien, notamment a travers son roman majeur, Le Zero et l'Infini. A partir de 1940, il vit en Angleterre, ou il se suicidera avec sa femme en mars 1983. Son oeuvre de romancier, philosophe, historien et essayiste lui vaut une renommee mondiale.

Koestler's diary of his time in prison awaiting execution by Franco's fascists is a marvelous record of emotions rarely spoken of. This edition's reprinting of the 1942 text is flawless.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compelling Story of Sacrifice 12 Jan. 2013
By Divine Play - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Arthur Koestler's "Dialogue with Death" is a compelling story of his imprisonment by the Fascists during the Spanish Civil War. Koestler is a controversial figure in life and literature, as demonstrated, for example, by Michael Scammell's "Koestler: The Literary and Political Odyssey of a Twentieth Century Skeptic." This work is one his most accessible. Koestler's best and most highly regarded work is, of course, the novel, "Darkness at Noon," which is, indeed unparalleled. I found "Dialogue with Death" to be equally as compelling. Koestler has an amazing style and perceptive eye for detail. One does not have to be in agreement with his politics to enjoy the work. Another book on this same theme is George Orwell's "Homage to Catalonia." I must confess that I regard Orwell as one of the great writers of the twentieth century. However, "Dialogue with Death" presents a different point of view of the Spanish Civil War--that of the political prisoner rather than the soldier (which Orwell was) in that conflict. Most significantly, both books portray the heroism and commitment of the Spaniards to their country, and their willingness to suffer and die for their homeland. Their endurance in the face of unbelievable hardship serves as an inspiration for us, as we struggle to escape the gravitation pull of twenty-first-century materialism, apathy and despair.

By Alvaro Chacon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a great Koestler book, gets you a very good understanding of the nature of his later work, his philosophical way of thinking and why he got to be such a great supporter of the abolition of death penalty.
