Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn

1918 - 0

a courageous Russian political commentator during the second world war.

Alexander Isayevich Solzhenitsyn corageously endured many injustices in his lifetime. He fought bravely in the war, but was arrested and imprisoned for eight years by his comrades for remarks he was supposed to have made against Stalin. His work was seen as a betrayal in his home country, and was banned from Russia and expelled from the Writer's Union.

Solzhenitsyn's courage in continuing to criticise wrongs around him make his novels some of literature's bravest and most powerful political commentary.
