The love-girl and the innocent : a play by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

10 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The Love-Girl and the Innocent' is a brilliant play about the inhuman world of the [Stalinist] camps, that have their own rules, and where nothing of the world outside matters. The 'Innocent' is a newly arrived prisoner, who still bears idealism and is reluctant to adopt the camp techniques of survival. His love for Lyuba, one of the many women forced by circumstances to sell themselves for privileges and rations, tempts him to compromise with himself and betray his moral and emotional loyalties. --Kabanowa at Amazon.com
The cancer ward by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

39 editions published between 1968 and 2017 in English and Russian and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A largely autobiographical account of a group of people who pass through the cancer wing of a provincial Soviet hospital in 1955, it is a vivid portrait of individuals in isolation whose collective concern is disease. Through the stories of patients and doctors, political prisoners and bureaucrats, the young and the old, it probes the fears and the hopes of an entire cross-section of Soviet society. Cancer Ward has been seen as a metaphor for the malignancy afflicting the Russian nation, but the moral and ethical questions it raises-about love and conscience, life and death, spiritual sorrows and triumphs-rise above their immediate political context to assure universal significance. This is the complete, unexpurgated edition translated by Nicholas Betthell and David Burg. It includes Solzhenitsyn's world-famous letters to the Fourth Congress of Soviet Writers and the Writers' Union, a transcript of the proceedings of a session of the Soviet Writers' Secretariat, and an afterword by Vladimir Petrov."

Cancer ward by Aleksandr Isaevich Solzhenit︠s︡yn( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This novel portrays the relationship of a group of people in the cancer ward of a provincial Soviet hospital. We see them under normal circumstances, and also re-examined at the eleventh hour of illness. Together they present a remarkable cross-section of contemporary Russian characters and attitudes. The experience of the central character, Oleg Kostoglotov, closely reflect the author's own: solzhenitsyn himself became a patient in a cancer ward in the mid-1950s, on his release from a concentration camp, and later recovered. "Cancer Ward" symbolises the conflict between liberals and conservatives in Russia today
