Abstract:

In the madness of World War II, a dutiful Russian soldier is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to ten years in a Siberian labor camp. So begins this masterpiece of modern Russian fiction, the harrowing account of a man who has conceded to all things evil with dignity and strength. First published in 1962, it is considered one of the most significant works ever to emerge from Soviet Russia. Illuminating a dark chapter in Russian history, this book is at once a graphic picture of work camp life and a moving tribute to man's will to prevail over relentless dehumanization. -- Publisher description.

One of the most extraordinary literary documents to have emerged from the Soviet Union, this is the story of labor camp inmate Ivan Denisovich Shukhov and his struggle to maintain his dignity in the face of Communist oppression. Based on the author's own experience in the gulags, where he spent nearly a decade as punishment for making derogatory remarks against Stalin, the novel is an unforgettable portrait of the entire world of Stalin's forced work camps. An instant classic upon publication in 1962, it confirmed Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's international stature as "a literary genius whose talent matches that of Dostoevsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy
