Excerpt


The Gulag Archipelago remains as the one of the most historically impressive works; first circulated by hand, it would eventually cause Solzhenitsyn to flee the country, and emphasize "Human Rights" to the world at large. Categorized as "an experiment in literary investigation", The Gulag Archipelago is comprised of Solzhenitsyn's own memories, as well as those of other camp inmates, official records and interviewees. A memorial to those who died in the camps, this work shows the historical truth of the Gulag, as well as the mark it left on society.
The explosive first volume details Solzhenitzyn's arrest and interrogation, revealing the vast bureaucracy of secret police that haunted Soviet society.

Excerpt


One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisovich follows Ivan Denisovich Shukhov, known to his warders as S-854, through a brutally cold January day in a Stalinist work camp in Siberia. In this masterpiece of the literature of witness, not a word is wasted; not an incident is out of place and no moralizing sentiment impedes the author's absorption in his drama. As readers, we are irresistibly drawn into Shukhov's search for warmth and his strategies to stave off hunger. We understand as if we were governed by those needs ourselves the intricate imperatives that define his relationships to both his fellow prisoners and his jailers. But it is as a work of art--a work utterly personal yet timeless--that will always be read and remembered.
