In the madness of World War II, a dutiful Russian soldier is wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to ten years in a Siberian labor camp. So begins this masterpiece of modern Russian fiction, a harrowing account of a man who has conceded to all things evil with dignity and strength.  First published in 1962, it is considered one of the most significant works ever to emerge from Soviet Russia. Illuminating a dark chapter in Russian history, Ivan Denisovich is at once a graphic picture of work camp life and a moving tribute to man’s will to prevail over relentless dehumanization.

I first read the translation done by Max Hayward and Ronald Hingley, and found something lacking in the story, perhaps due to the translation. After reading this translation by H.T. Willetts, I believ...

3.0 One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich
There were truly profound moments in this story. At times the prisoners were like wild animals just fighting each other for survival, and then there were glimpses of dignity and humanity that were striking against this inhumane backdrop. There are a few images that will stick with me from this sto...
