Book Title: Death and the Maiden

Author: Ariel Dorfman

Book Description:

I had the good fortune of being Ariel Dorfman's student during the period in his life when he wrote this piece. The play is one of most significant works of human rights writing in the late twentieth century, but it is also a love story. It is full of passion and rage and hope. Over two decades since I first read it, it remains one of my most meaningful books. No matter how many times I teach it, I find I continue to learn from it.
