Early in the spring of 1932, when I received a Guggenheim Fellowship requiring me to go to Europe for a year, I was thirty-three and had been in the United States for nineteen years.

"In the following pages I give the narrative of a young communist I encountered in Dalmatia. For the truth of the story as the boy wrote it I vouch in every detail. In translation I changed it only insofar as necessary to hide the author's identity and in order not to betray anything connected with the work of the Communnist party of Yugoslavia not already known to the police." -- Pref., p. 10

Novela je socialno simbolična podoba krivic, ki jih trpita mali kmet in delavec pod kapitalizmom. Zgrajena je iz dramatično zasnovanih prizorov, ki prikazujejo boj hlapca Jerneja za pravico in Jernejev razvoj od patriarhalnega hlapca do individualnega upornika. Napisana je s pridihom revolucionarne romantike, v biblijsko slovesnem slogu
