Jens Bjørneboe's Moment of Freedom (1966), Powderhouse (1969) and The Silence (1974) marked the high point of a controversial literary career. Since the early 1950s this Norwegian iconoclast had been making life difficult for the establishment, attacking its repressive schools, inhumane prisons, corrupt police and power-hungry politicians. Now Bjørneboe turned his attention to a more general problem: the evil inherent in the human race itself. Why, his narrators ask despairingly, does man behave so inhumanely to his fellow creatures?
