One of the most significant works ever to emerge from Soviet Russia, this novel is both a graphic picture of World War II work camp life and a testimony to the human spirit. Revised reissue.
Annotation:
When Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn's ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF IVAN DENISOVICH was published in the Russian literary magazine Novy Mir it was a monumental historical and literary event. The first sanctioned piece of writing out of the Soviet Union to directly address the horrors of the Stalinist regime and the brutal nature of the Soviet labor camps, the novella had revealed the secret nightmare of the Communist system to the entire world. Solzhenitsyn's slim book, drawn from his own experiences in what he would later call "the gulag archipelago," recounts a typical day in the life of a prisoner as he struggles to stay warm, stay healthy, find food, avoid theft, and maintain his humanity in the sub-zero Siberian wasteland. The novella's unflinching look at the oppressive and absurd rules of the camps is simultaneously vivid and surreal. More than a historical document, ONE DAY IN THE LIFE OF IVAN DENISOVICH is a great work of literature that depicts a vision of man-made hell, a place where humanity has been pushed to the breaking point by the iron fist of The State.

Praise

"This quiet tale has struck a powerful blow against the return of the horrors of the Stalin system. For Solzhenitsyn's words burn like acid." 01/22/1963
