Abstract:

For privately criticizing Stalin while a Soviet soldier, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (b.1918) served eight years in the prison system that we know through him as the gulag. He became famous in 1962 with One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. Because of The Gulag Archipelago, he was sent into exile in 1974; he settled in Vermont. His major works include the novels The First Circle and Cancer Ward, and the autobiographical The Oak and the Calf. Parts of his magnum opus, The Red Wheel, plus other books, await translation into English. In 1994, he returned home, as he predicted he would.
