Herewith the unchallenged epic of our era A towering masterpiece of world literature the searing record of four decades of terror and oppression distilled into one abridged volume authorized by the author Drawing on his own experiences before during and after his eleven years of incarceration and exile on evidence provided by more than 200 fellow prisoners and on Soviet archives Solzhenitsyn reveals with torrential narrative and dramatic power the entire apparatus of Soviet repression the state within the state that once ruled all powerfully with its creation by Lenin in 1918 Through truly Shakespearean portraits of its victims this man that woman that child we encounter the secret police operations the labor camps and prisons the uprooting or extermination of whole populations the welcome that awaited Russian soldiers who had been German prisoners of war Yet we also witness astounding moral courage the incorruptibility with which the occasional individual or a few scattered groups all defenseless endured brutality and degradation And Solzhenitsyns genius has transmuted this grisly indictment into a literary miracle
