The Seven Who Were Hanged

Leonid Andreyev

Book Overview: 

"I am very glad that "The Story of the Seven Who Were Hanged" will be read in English.

-- Leonid Andreyev, in a letter to Herman Bernstein

Before Musya's and Golovin's eyes the sky, which had been turning ever bluer, was gradually losing its tint, but it did not turn rosy, did not smile softly as in summer evenings, but became muddy, gray, and suddenly grew cold, wintry. Golovin heaved a sigh, stretched himself, glanced again twice at the window, but the cold darkness of the night alone was there; then continuing to tug at his short beard, he began to examine with childish curiosity the judges, the soldiers with their muskets, and he smiled at Tanya Kovalchuk. When the sky had darkened Musya calmly, without lowering her eyes to the ground, turned them to the corner where a small cobweb was quivering from the imperceptible radiations of the steam heat, and thus she remained . . . Read More

This slender novel from 1908 didn’t even make the 1001 Books You Must Read list but it might make my much shorter 100 Books You Must Read list because it’s terrific. The story couldn’t be more direct – there’s a failed assassination attempt of some local petty Tsarist tyrant and five terrorists (tha

Trial, verdict, awaiting an execution: Leonid Andreyev paints vivid and livid psychological portraits of those sentenced to death – both idealists and dreamers; and also mean and calloused criminals. The story is profound, precise and frightful.
