ALEXANDER SOLZHENITSYN A CENTURY IN HIS LIFE By DM Thomas. Biography, accordingto English novelist DM Thomas, is an impossible art. I agree.
By D. M. Thomas
Biography, according to English novelist D. M. Thomas, is an "impossible art." I agree. Of course, that has not stopped anyone from trying. Literary biographies, overlong and unnecessary, have become the academic pulp of the book world. Given the polluted environment, Thomas deserves some praise for this latest tome. His arrangement of material is skilful, his observations are generally astute, and his decision to focus on Solzhenitsyn's world rather than his work is a wise one. (How many people actually finished The Gulag Archipelago ? Be honest.) Unfortunately, all of the sins of the modern biography are here as well, beginning with the hefty weight. Anyone who ever met Solzhenitsyn gets an honorable mention. And the trivia! Is it really true that Solzhenitsyn's aunt was a neighbour of Yuri Andropov's mother? Now I know. The novelist's style, usually sharp, can't always handle this critical mass. Ellipsis dots, especially at the end of a paragraph, are used far too often - hinting at a rush job or lack of proof-reading. And what are we to make of filler like this: "If Sanya's sense of truth was like a laser beam, Natasha's was like moonlight on a stormy night." If Thomas had been this uninspired while writing The White Hotel he might have won the Booker Prize.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

One should never direct people towards
happiness, because happiness too is an
idol of the market-place. One should
direct them towards mutual affection.
A beast gnawing at its prey can be happy
too, but only human beings can feel affection
for each other, and this is the
highest achievement they can aspire to. Literature that is not the breath of contemporary society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society, that does not warn in time against threatening moral and social dangers such literature does not deserve the name of literature; it is only confidence of its own people, and its published works are used as wastepaper instead of being read. The salvation of mankind lies only in making everything the concern of all. Everything you add to the truth subtracts from the truth. A great writer is, so to speak, a second government in his country. And for that reason no regime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones. Generosity is a two-edged virtue for an artist - it nourishes his imagination but has a fatal effect on his routine.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn Russian, Politician, Novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn studied mathematics and physics as a young man, as well as literature. He served with distinction in the Soviet Army during World War II, but after the war, his criticism of Stalin led to his arrest. Solzhenitsyn spend eight years in labor camps, and was released in 1953. In 1962, with the approval of Soviet Premier Khrushchev, he published One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, an account of life in the Soviet Gulag. He denounced Soviet censorship, and his later books were banned. In 1970 he was awarded the Nobel Prize. Eventually his dissident postures became too much for the Soviet government, and in 1974, Solzhenitsyn was expelled. Throughout the years of his exile, Solzhenitsyn never stopped speaking out against Soviet Communism, and he was eventually permitted to return to his country after the fall of Communism.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
A Century in His Life
By D.M. Thomas
Alfred A. Knopf, $35
ISBN 0312180365 Review by Roger Bishop H e may well be the century's greatest dissident. From committed Communist to political prisoner to Nobel Prize laureate and political exile and beyond, Alexander Solzhenitsyn's life is of such scope and complexity that only a novelist can effectively portray it. Fortunately, one has, and succeeded magnificently. D.M. Thomas, best known for "The White Hotel," is also a poet and a translator of the works of major Russian authors. In "Alexander Solzhenitsyn: A Century in His Life," Thomas painstakingly and sensitively conveys the horrors and hardships of the writer "who helped to bring down the greatest tyranny the world has seen, besides educating the West to its full horror. No other writer of the twentieth century," he notes, "has had such an influence on history." Thomas places his subject in the noble line of novelists and poets that began with Pushkin. In Solzhenitsyn's words, they are "another government," whose responsibility has been to tell the truth in the face of tyranny and authoritarian rule. Thomas skillfully blends social and political history with literary history. Although the biographer admires Solzhenitsyn's courage and work, he presents his subject in all his complexity. This includes his arrogance and self-absorption, his often egotistical approach to others. In particular, there were the strains and tensions between the writer and his first wife, Natasha, and his eventual rejection of her for another, younger woman. Thomas explores Solzhenitsyn's relations with women in some detail and notes that "much as he desired women, Solzhenitsyn found a deeper spiritual and intellectual bond with male friends." Both women and many others, women and men, worked tirelessly for him, often at great risk and sacrifice. Frequently the relationships did not last.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
"What surprises me most in Solzhenitsyn is the calm that he emanateshe who has been threatened and fought over more than any other man on earth. Nothing, it seems, can destroy his serenity, neither the terrible insults to which he has been exposed in his own country nor the banishmentthe 'one-way ticket'which he has been offered and which he has refused. At the same time, Solzhenitsyn's calm is not at all that of a gilded Olympian Monument but that of a living man, concerned and involved with the course of human events." -Heinrich Boll His early history: Alexander Sanya Isayevich Solzhenitsyn, born December 11, 1918 in Kislovodsk, was the son of Taissia Solzhenitsyn and Isaaki Solzhenitsyn. The name Solzhenitsyn may be derived from solad , which means malt. Behind the name, family legends of early rebelliousness existed in Sozhenitsyn's blood quite a long time before his birth. His great-great-grandfather joined in an act of rebellion and suffered banishment to the virgin lands of the Caucasus. A Fillip Solzhenitsyn displeased Peter the Great for having illegally changed his place of abode. Perhaps this predicted Alexander in becoming a rebellious nonconformist. His father, Isaaki, was a student at Moscow University where he studied philology. Isaaki did not complete school because he enlisted in the Russian army voluntarily in 1914 and served throughout the entire war. However, the greatest tragedy in the family had occurred that would have an enormous impact on Alexander on June 8, 1918, six months before Alexander's birth. He father was hunting for game and accidentally leaned on the gun, which in turn had shot him in the stomach. Due to poor medical care, Isaaki Solzhenitsyn died a week later. Alexander and his mother moved to Rostov, where Alexander grew up.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn's Triumphant Return
By Jay Rogers
Alexander Solzhenitsyn claimed two decades ago, "One word of truth shall outweigh the whole world." Sophisticated observers chuckled at his naivete, but the fall of communism in Eastern Europe has given Solzhenitsyn the last laugh as Vaclav Havel in Czechoslovakia, Lazlo Tokes in Romania, and Lech Walesa in Poland all confronted tanks and machine guns with words of truth, paving the way toward a new future. In October, the Soviet chief prosecutor dropped treason charges against the Russian author who has been in exile since 1971. Solzhenitsyn was the first author to alert the West to the horrible realities he experienced in Stalin's labor camps after World War Two. The Gulag Archipelago, his Nobel Prize winning work, has been released to the Russian public as well. Although his works have been popular in the Soviet Union, it was only recently that he was given permission to return. Now the writer's intentions may seriously influence the course of events in Russia and other parts of the former union republics. His new book, Rebuilding Russia, makes it clear that he is getting ready to get involved in Russian politics. "Upon my return to Russia," says Solzhenitsyn, "I will immediately become immersed in other concerns that I in common with everyone." When Solzhenitsyn ends his 20 year exile, he will return to Russia with his own political program for reform. This is a man who knows and understands Russia better than most democrats that are now trying to reform it. He has a controversial but clear vision for the country's future, something that many other figures in Russian politics lack.

, where it proved that I had considerable aptitude for mathematics. But although I found it easy to learn this subject, I did not feel that I wished to devote my whole life to it. Nevertheless, it was to play a beneficial role in my destiny later on, and on at least two occasions, it rescued me from death. For I would probably not have survived the eight years in camps if I had not, as a mathematician, been transferred to a so-called sharashia , where I spent four years; and later, during my exile, I was allowed to teach mathematics and physics, which helped to ease my existence and made it possible for me to write. If I had had a literary education it is quite likely that I should not have survived these ordeals but would instead have been subjected to even greater pressures. Later on, it is true, I began to get some literary education as well; this was from 1939 to 1941, during which time, along with university studies in physics and mathematics, I also studied by correspondence at the Institute of History, Philosophy and Literature in Moscow.
In 1941, a few days before the outbreak of the war, I graduated from the Department of Physics and Mathematics at Rostov University. At the beginning of the war, owing to weak health, I was detailed to serve as a driver of horsedrawn vehicles during the winter of 1941-1942. Later, because of my mathematical knowledge, I was transferred to an artillery school, from which, after a crash course, I passed out in November 1942. Immediately after this I was put in command of an artillery-position-finding company, and in this capacity, served, without a break, right in the front line until I was arrested in February 1945. This happened in East Prussia, a region which is linked with my destiny in a remarkable way. As early as 1937, as a first-year student, I chose to write a descriptive essay on "The Samsonov Disaster" of 1914 in East Prussia and studied material on this; and in 1945 I myself went to this area (at the time of writing, autumn 1970, the book

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (1918-) Russian author and historian, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1970. In his work Solzhenitsyn continued the realistic tradition of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy and complemented it later with his views of the flaws of both East and West. He produced in the 1960s and 1970s a number of major novels based on his own experiences of Soviet prisons and hospital life under the communist dictator Joseph Stalin. Later he saw that his primary mission is to rewrite the Russian history of the revolutionary period in the multivolumed work The Red Wheel "He had drawn many a thousand of these rations in prisons and camps, and though he'd never had an opportunity to weight them on scales, and although, being a man of timid nature, he knew no way of standing up for his rights, he, like every other prisoner, had discovered long ago that honest weight was never to be found in the bread-cutting. There was short weight in every ration. The only point was how short. So every day you took a look to soothe your soul - today, maybe, they haven't snitched any." (from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn descended from an intellectual Cossack family. He was born in Kislovodsk in the northern Caucasus Mountains between the Black and Caspian seas. His father, a tsarist artillery officer, was killed in an hunting accident six months before Aleksandr's birth.
