The Gulag Archipelago: Volume II Section II by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

The Gulag Archipelago: Volume II Section II

by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
16 Hrs. 13 Min.


The first four-fifths of this volume cover what the author calls the "Destructive-Labor Camps" and the fate of the prisoners in them, felling timber, building canals and railroads, mining gold, without equipment or adequate food or clothing, and subject always to the caprices of the camp authorities. Most tragic of all is the life of the women prisoners...and of the luckless children they bear.
Once again, this chronicle of appalling inhumanity is made endurable by the vitality and emotional range of the writing. In one truly remarkable chapter -- a parody of an anthropological treatise -- he achieves new heights of sardonic wit. And in the final section, the music changes and Solzhenitsyn provides a magnificent coda on the possibilities of redemption and purification through suffering.
