Solzhenitsyn Considered

An interesting (to me) article from last month's First Things about Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, the great Russian dissident and writer. Probably best known in the West for The Gulag Archipelago, he was actually a fairly prolific writer. Even if you've never read anything he's written, you'd be well advised to check out the article and learn a bit more about the man who so profoundly influenced the latter half of the last century.
