It is the Day of Death in Mexico and Geoffrey Firmin – consul, ex- husband, an alcoholic and a ruined man – is living out the last day of his life. Drowning himself in mescal while his former wife and half-brother look on, powerless to help him, the consul has became an enduring, tragic figure. His story, the image of one man’s agonized journey towards Calvary, became a prophetic book for a whole generation. Under the Volcano remains one of the literature’s most powerful and lyrical statements on the human condition, and a brilliant portrayal of one man’s constant struggle against the elemental forces that threaten to destroy him.
