  • Harper Perennial

Herewith the unchallenged epic of our period. A transcending artful culmination of world writing, the singing record of four many years of dread and mistreatment, refined into one shortened volume (approved by the author).

Drawing individually encounters previously, amid and after his eleven years of imprisonment and outcast, on confirm gave by more than 200 kindred detainees, and on Soviet chronicles, Solzhenitsyn uncovers with heavy account and sensational power the whole contraption of Soviet suppression, the state inside the express that once controlled all-effectively with its creation by Lenin in 1918. Through genuinely Shakespearean representations of its casualties this man, lady, that tyke we experience the mystery police tasks, the work camps and detainment facilities, the evacuating or eradication of entire populaces, the “appreciated” that anticipated Russian troopers who had been German detainees of war. However we additionally witness dumbfounding good boldness, the moral soundness with which the incidental individual or a couple of scattered gatherings, all helpless, persisted fierceness and corruption. Furthermore, Solzhenitsyn’s virtuoso has transmuted this terrible prosecution into a scholarly supernatural occurrence.
