Criticism about Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

A Postmodern Solzhenitsyn
“William H. Thornton undertakes in his article, “A Postmodern Solzhenitsyn?,” to bring Solzhenitsyn in from the cold, critically speaking, by closing the gap between him and his many postmodern detractors. That gap has been premised on the rough equivalence of poststructuralism and postmodernism. The postmodern realism advanced in this study challenges not only Solzhenitsyn’s critics but his own stated aversion to postmodernism.”
Contains: Criticism
Author: William H. Thornton
