Abstract:

Based on exclusive, personal interviews with Solzhenitsyn, Joseph Pearce's book provides insight into a towering literary and political figure. From his pro-Communist youth to his imprisonment in the Gulags, his exile in America to his return to Russia, this is the story of a man who has struggled with the most weighty questions of humanity. When a person has suffered the most terrible physical and emotional torture, what becomes of his spirit? Can politics and economics truly provide the answers a modern society needs? If peace and justice are never fully attained, what hope is there for the future? Arguably one of the most significant writers of the twentieth century, Solzhenitsyn has, both before and after the fall of Communism, spoken out against the Russian regime. His faith has deeply informed his literary approach and response to the excesses of modern materialism. On the spiritual, cultural, and socio-political level, his writings have much to teach the world. This biography contains previously unpublished prose poems, written by Solzhenitsyn since his return to Russia, and a gallery of rare photographs.
