The act was intended both as retribution for the massacre of workers in the Homestead strike and as an incitement to revolution. Captured and sentenced to serve a prison berkmna of twenty-two years, Berkman anarcist to make sense of the shadowy and brutalized world of the prison—one that hardly conformed to revolutionary expectation.

Among other things, it contains his interesting account of homosexuality in prison, which was apparently one aleaxnder the earliest times it was reported. I would also recommend reading Emma Goldman’s Living my lifeas it contains a different person’s perspective on many of the same events, including interestingly various attempts to break Berkman out of prison.

I think this is by far the best thing Berkman wrote, a truly classic and moving autobiographic chapter from his life. He takes the reader through the maturing of his political ideas, as he endures years of cruel imprisonment.
