Product Description

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. Volume 3, the final volume, is "an enthralling record of camp uprisings, of escapes, of defiance by individuals and groups of victims.In poignant closing chapters, [Solzhenitsyn] recalls his own resurrection from the house of the dead." (from the New Yorker)

Publisher's Description

Volume 3 of the gripping epic masterpiece, Solzhenitsyn's moving account of resistance within the Soviet labor camps and his own release after eight years

Author Bio

After serving as a decorated captain in the Soviet Army during World War II, Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was sentenced to prison for eight years for criticizing Stalin and the Soviet government in private letters. Solzhenitsyn vaulted from unknown schoolteacher to internationally famous writer in 1962 with the publication of his novella One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich; he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1968. The writer's increasingly vocal opposition to the regime resulted in another arrest, a charge of treason, and expulsion from the USSR in 1974, the year The Gulag Archipelago, his epic history of the Soviet prison system, first appeared in the West. For eighteen years, he and his family lived in Vermont. In 1994 he returned to Russia. Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn died at his home in Moscow in 2008.
