A1 Solzhenit︠s︡yn, Aleksandr Isaevich,, PB Harper & Row PP New York YR 1974 SN 0060803320 9780060803322 0060139145 9780060139148 0060139110 9780060139117 0060139129 9780060139124 AB Drawing on his own experiences before, during, and after his 11 years of incarceration and exile, Solzhenitsyn reveals with torrential narrative and dramatic power the entire apparatus of Soviet repression. Through truly Shakespearean portraits of its victims, we encounter the secret police operations, the labor camps and prisons, the uprooting or extermination of whole populations. Yet we also witness astounding moral courage, the incorruptibility with which the occasional individual or a few scattered groups, all defenseless, endured brutality and degradation. Solzhenitsyn's genius has transmuted this grisly indictment into a literary miracle.
