ABSTRACT
This article discusses the book "Solitary Confinement," by Christopher Burney. The book is a narrative of eighteen months' imprisonment by the Nazis and the brutal adjuncts to Nazi methods of interrogation. The author gives an awesome account of what happens to a human being, body, mind and spirit, during an extended solitary confinement which he expects to end in madness or death. The remarkable character of this book, the nakedness of its author's self-disclosure, the skill with which the impossible task of transmitting the in-communicable is attempted, its unfamiliar categories, amount in all to an experience which defies description and frustrates evaluation.
