Sample text

Kostoglotov has read about the properties of this fungus, and tells everyone in the ward about it. Like cancer patients everywhere, they are eager to learn about a new remedy, and request the address of one Dr. Maslennikov, who has championed the use of the fungus. But Dyoma asks a discouraging question: How are they to get any of the fungus when birch trees do not grow in Tashkent? At this point, the narrative commentary recasts the issue as one of homesickness, not cancer. " One senses that Kostoglotov is suffering from the disease of being cut off from Russia, as well as from cancer, and believes that the symbolic birch tree can cure him of both.

In the chapter "And Shades, Too" he fears that a man will return from the camps to denounce him. " The stroke of genius on Solzhenitsyn's part comes in placing this statement at the conclusion of the discussion of Tolstoy's theory of nonviolence. Solzhenitsyn here pits two of Tolstoy's many varieties of innocence against each other; he opposes Stiva Oblonsky's innocence about the effects of his actions on others, an innocence hardly distinguishable from irresponsibility, to Tolstoy's way of absolving himself of responsibility for the evil in the world by proclaiming nonviolence as a form of withdrawal from the world.

But in 1963 he was free to open himself to Dostoyevsky in Cancer Ward. In the next chapter I will argue that Cancer Ward uses primarily Dostoyevskyan techniques (to some extent, the same holds for Tolstoy's second major novel, Anna Karenina); still, we will find some of Tolstoy in any of Solzhenitsyn's major works, and Cancer Ward is no exception. Cancer Ward Like The First Circle, Cancer Ward takes place in an enclosed, isolated setting, begins with the arrival of new people, and ends with a departure.
