The Seven Who Were Hanged

Leonid Nikolayevich Andreyev (1871 - 1919)
Translated by Herman Bernstein (1876 - 1935)

"I am very glad that "The Story of the Seven Who Were Hanged" will be read in English. The misfortune of us all is that we know so little, even nothing, about one another—neither about the soul, nor the life, the sufferings, the habits, the inclinations, the aspirations of one another. Literature, which I have the honor to serve, is dear to me just because the noblest task it sets before itself is that of wiping out boundaries and distances." -- Leonid Andreyev, in a letter to Herman Bernstein
