9781935191551: The Solzhenitsyn Reader: New and Essential Writings, 1947-2005

This reader, compiled by renowned Solzhenitsyn scholars Edward E. Ericson, Jr., and Daniel J. Mahoney in collaboration with the Solzhenitsyn family, provides in one volume a rich and representative selection of Solzhenitsyn's voluminous works. Reproduced in their entirety are early poems, early and late short stories, early and late "miniatures" (or prose poems), and many of Solzhenitsyn’s famous—and not-so-famous—essays and speeches. The volume also includes excerpts from Solzhenitsyn's great novels, memoirs, books of political analysis and historical scholarship, and the literary and historical masterpieces The Gulag Archipelago and The Red Wheel. More than one-quarter of the material has never before appeared in English (the author’s sons prepared many of the new translations themselves).

The Solzhenitsyn Reader reveals a writer of genius, an intransigent opponent of ideological tyranny and moral relativism, and a thinker and moral witness who is acutely sensitive to the great drama of good and evil that takes place within every human soul. It will be for many years the definitive Solzhenitsyn collection.

About the Author:

                Edward E. Ericson, Jr. is professor of English, emeritus, at Calvin College. A longtime Solzhenitsyn scholar, he is editor of the authorized abridgment of The Gulag Archipelago (1985, 2002) and author of Solzhenitsyn: The Moral Vision(1980) and  Solzhenitsyn and the Modern World (1993).
           Daniel J. Mahoney is Professor of Political Science at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. An expert on French political philosophy and anti-totalitarian thought, his books include: The Liberal Political Science of Raymond Aron: A Critical Introduction(1992) ; De Gaulle: Statesmanship, Grandeur, and Modern Democracy(1996 and 2000); Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: The Ascent from Ideology(2001); and Bertrand de Jouvenel: The Conservative Liberal and the Illusions of Modernity(2005).

Review:

"Ericson and Mahoney are to be congratulated in assembling this collection of Solzhenitsyn's corpus. Their introductions to the various offerings provide the reader with an understnading of the focus of the work, its genesis, and outline. I am personally grateful that they included his Harvard Address that illustrates Isaevich as the true Platonic philosopher/prophet, where he fearlessly engages the academy in questions they have no desire to hear let alone answer."
Robert C. Cheeks, American Thinker


"The selections in The Solzhenitsyn Reader confirm what the editors suggest in the opening pages: the author's life almost defies belief. Born in Russia one year after the Bolshevik seizure of power, he outlived the political system that persecuted him, surviving its horrible network of labor camps while documenting its myriad crimes. Solzhenitsyn's writings are indispensable for understanding the 20th century. For those who would like to sample that corpus generously, the Reader is an excellent place to begin."
David L. Tubbs, Claremont Review of Books

Book Description Isi Books, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 249 x 165 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Russian writer and Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was one of the truly monumental figures of our time. After spending time in the Soviet gulag and pursuing the life of an underground writer, he was catapulted to international fame with the unexpected publication of One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich in 1962 . His unyielding and courageous opposition to the twentieth century s most powerful totalitarian regime eventually led to his exile to the West in 1974, where he spent 20 years before returning to his native Russia in 1994. This reader, compiled by the distinguished Solzhenitsyn scholars Edward E. Ericson, Jr., and Daniel J. Mahoney with the cooperation of the Solzhenitsyn family, provides in one volume a rich and representative selection of Solzhenitsyn s voluminous works. Reproduced in their entirety are early poems, early and late short stories, early and late miniatures (or prose poems), and many of Solzhenitsyn s famous - and not-so-famous - essays and speeches. The volume also includes excerpts from Solzhenitsyn s great novels, memoirs, books of political analysis and historical scholarship, and the literary and historical masterpieces The Gulag Archipelago and The Red Wheel. More than one quarter of the material has never before appeared in English. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781935191551
