Long imprisonment and suppression caused many to forget such values as Ivan Denisovich did no longer remember his family. Next importance is the idea of freedom of speech and thought is ever thought about. As all characters, Fetyukov, Ivan, Captain…, hang on their each words and conversations that the Soviet Government can do anything and nobody dares to change or even complain.

In a discussion between two characters of the novel, Captain and the main one, Ivan Denisovich Shukhov, they commence an argument about what happens to the moon at the end of the month. This lack of religion is originated either by the power of hunger or tough living conditions and disappointment in the improvement of the situation and status quo.
I believe in God, all right. Individuality VS. Self-Humiliation As the novel progresses to the climax, the clues of disbelief or unbelief fade in. What can cause a man to believe a humiliation of working in lavatory as an indulgence?

Their integration, coherence and hopes arechanged to confusion, haplessness, incoherence and disintegration of identity.

Slowly the coffin floated, grazing the fized bayonets. He also was mute- his embalmed fists, just pretending to be dead, he watched from inside. He wished to fix each pallbearer in his memory: He was scheming.
Had merely dozed off. And I, appealing to our government, petition them to double, and treble, the sentries guarding this slab, and stop Stalin from ever rising again and, with Stalin, the past. I refer not to the past, so holy and glorious, of Turksib, and Magnitka, and the flag raised over Berlin. We sowed our crops honestly. Honestly we smelted metal, and honestly we marched, joining the ranks.
But he feared us. Believing in the great goal, he judged all means justified to that great end. He was far-sighted. Adept in the art of political warfare, he left many heirs behind on this globe. Stalin instructs Enver Hoxha. From that coffin where else does the cable go!
No, Stalin has not given up. He thinks he can cheat death. We carried him from the mausoleum. Some of his heirs tend roses in retirement, thinking in secret their enforced leisure will not last. Others, from platforms, even heap abuse on Stalin but, at night, yearn for the good old days.

Jul 6, That's a sterling introduction, one that should be archived! And thanks for filling me in on the historical background of the story!
What did you think of this work? I guess the word that describes it the best is masterly, though that does not convey much, and to think of it this is only a translation.
I know the story has a deep historical significance to it, but it becomes only one of the many themes dealt within the story.
And then too it just fades into the background, which is simultaneously dominated by the expert use of language, the very memorable characters, and the million philosophical ideas thrown around casually. I'm amazed at the sheer number of themes the story contains and at the ease with which the author has traversed them.
This man certainly had his marbles together! I've often wondered if there's a better way to treat "criminals" than to haul them into prisons. So degrading and so dehumanising, that's one hell of a disturbingly poignant picture the author has painted. I also find slight undertones of 'Life is beautiful' to it. And yes, in my mind's eye it was all black and white, like watching an old flick whose print has slightly faded. This has been an excellent read, whoever recommended it!
I have found many similarities between the Russian and French writers of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, though the Russians were decidedly less romantic. Is there really any connection? I find them both to be very stark and in a similar sort of way. Maybe the way they were translated was similar.
