Seven Hanged (Paperback)

'It was like walking along the knife-edge of the highest possible mountain range, seeing life on one side and death on the other in the form of two deep, gorgeous and gleaming seascapes.'

This astonishing novella from 1908, newly translated for Little Black Classics by War and Peacetranslator Anthony Briggs, probes the emotions and experiences of seven people condemned to death in Tsarist Russia. A powerful and subtle exploration of the morality of capital punishment, it was a bestseller at the time, and, in a strange quirk of history, influenced the conspirators in the cataclysmic assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914.

One of 46 new books in the bestselling Little Black Classics series, to celebrate the first ever Penguin Classic in 1946. Each book gives readers a taste of the Classics' huge range and diversity, with works from around the world and across the centuries - including fables, decadence, heartbreak, tall tales, satire, ghosts, battles and elephants.

"He willed his head to turn, and it did turn. And this... this thing that somehow seemed rather frightening... this was him, Sergey Golovin, and this is what would cease to be.

And everything had become unreal."

"'No. You think that is me, but it isn't. I'm the person you are talking to. How could I be THAT?'

'No, but you are going to die, and THAT's what you'll become.'

'No. I'm not going to die.'

'You're going to be executed. Look, there's the noose.'

'I'm going to be executed, but I shan't die. How can I die when I'm already immortal, here and now?'"

Đánh giá chung : 4 / 5 - Lời văn thôi cũng đủ chết người
