Hey

This Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn artwork is the latest addition to our Thought Criminals range, and December 11th marks 100th anniversary of his birth.
 
 
 
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was the first to chronicle the crushing brutality of daily life in the Soviet Union’s prison camps.
 
He was awarded a Nobel Prize for his novel One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (it's a fascinating read!). It was the only novel he was allowed to publish in the Soviet Union. His other works had to be published in the West, most notably Cancer Ward (chilling to the bone), and The Gulag Archipelago (Time magazine called it the most important book of the 20th century).
 
I think that the enduring quality of Solzhenitsyn's writing is that it shines a light on our own society, as well as our own humanity. The quote featured here is taken from The Gulag Archipelago:
 
“The line between good and evil runs not between cultures, religions or creeds, but through every human heart.”
 
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was not a perfect man. I disagree with some of his views. However, he was a hugely important voice during the tumultuous 20th century, not to mention a jaw-droppingly talented writer. This is my tribute to the great man.
 
Thanks for reading! 
Let me know your thoughts.
