The text translated here was drafted on December 17, 1942. As Italian historian Lamberto Mercuri wrote in his introduction to the first publication of the memoir in 1979 (a year after Silone's death), it is a document which details Silone's conception not just of his political faith but his conception of writing and life as well. It is, in short, an examination of conscience of a major twentieth-century writer; one who struggled agaisnt two forms of totalitarianism but whose greatest battle may have been within his own soul. --From the Introduction: Ignazio Silone's Dark Night of the Soul, Stanislao G.
