The only English translation authorized by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn First published in the Soviet journal Novy Mir in 1962, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich stands as a classic of contemporary literature. The story of labor-camp inmate Ivan Denisovich Shukhov, it graphically describes his struggle to maintain his dignity in the face of communist oppression. An unforgettable portrait of the entire world of Stalin's forced work camps, One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich is one of the most extraordinary literary documents to have emerged from the Soviet Union and confirms Solzhenitsyn's stature as "a literary genius whose talent matches that of Dosotevsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy"--Harrison SalisburyThis unexpurgated 1991 translation by H. T. Willetts is the only authorized edition available and fully captures the power and beauty of the original Russian.

4.0 One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich /written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ; translated by H.T. Willetts
This is the second time that I've read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich in less than a month. 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.

There are a few images that will stick with me from this sto...
