Remembering Arthur Koestler

Published: May 20, 2023

A talk by Alex Faludy , 6 June at 6:30pm, by MS Teams

                                                      

Arthur Koestler (1905-1983) died 40 years ago by suicide at his home in London together with his wife Cynthia. A literary giant of his day – and champion of humanitarian causes – Koestler’s novel Darkness at Noon is a penetrating exploration of the psychology of totalitarianism. Yet, Koestler is now half-forgotten and his reputation stained by posthumous allegations of sexual violence. This talk explores Koester’s legacy – especially with regard to his important, but overlooked, role in ending capital punishment in Britain.
