One Day In The Life Of Ivan Denisvich: Line illuminator Jason
"How much water are you going to use, idiot? Who on earth washes like that?" Page 13
This quote is said by a guard while Shukhov was scrubbing the floor. This quote can determine some of the aspects of life that Shukhov is going through. Shuckhov was just scrubbing the floor the way he has to but the guard complains that he is using too much water . This means that Shuchov's guards would find any excuse to get Shuchovin trouble. This means that Shukhov's life is extremely tragic in his camp life. Moreover people treats him like slaves over there and the guards don't give him enough bread ( food) even if they worked an enough amount.
And a few pages before this quote is found, people talk about licking the leftovers of the plates while cleaning them this demonstrates their hunger and misery.
This quote was said by one of the guards when he caught Shukhov oversleeping but the thing is that Shukhov is actually one of the people who woke up first. Therefore he was punished for something that he didn't actually do wrong. This can describe his feeling when he was forced to work by scrubbing the floors. I believe that he would have felt miserable and he would have felt really bad. Life would have been really horrible for him in the camp. This quote also describes the harshness of the guards in the camp.\
