Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

(1918 - 2008)

Nobel laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn catalogued the horrors of the Soviet Gulag in poems, plays, memoirs, and novels. For his literary endeavors, he was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974. “A great writer,” he once wrote, “is, so to speak, a secret government in his country.”
