The Love-Girl and The Innocent
Translated by Nicholas Bethell and David Burg
Drawing on his personal experience, the Nobel Prize-winning author set this play in a Stalinist slave camp in 1945. The 'Innocent' is a new arrival to the camp who is reluctant to adopt the sordid techniques of survival.
His love for Lyuba, one of the many girls forced by circumstances to sell themselves for privileges and rations, tempts hin to compromise with himself and betray his moral and emotional loyalties.
Solzhenitsyn's terrifying picture of the despair and degeneration suffered under a merciless camp regime had already reached dredd-rehearsal stage in Moscow before it was banned by the authorities.
