Author: Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Job #5 – Illustrious Artist
Pages: 69 - 105
Throughout pages 69-105, Shukhov had to wake up very early every morning and then go to training. He would do this normally, but in three occasions, he missed out, and he slept more than the usual. As a result, Shukhov was punished with mopping the floors, and he never repeated that again. For every success, you really need to work hard, and that leads us to the second picture.
Shukhov, really worked hard for his family. Not only him, but all of the other prisoners as well. I think that this picture is the one that symbolizes the most. As the book goes on and on, Shukhov is assigned with harder, and harder tasks. Each day, he is fighting stronger so that he could give his wife the money she asked for. Also, in the book, they really explain how they feel, and how many are ill, and how the prisoners react to the job they are assigned.
Another thing that they explained in the book, is how they needed to work hard to be able to eat, and to feed themselves. They explain how all prisoners by default, had to work to feed them. I believe that this picture shows the way that they would eat, and the way that this was almost their "relaxation" time throughout the day. I also think that the more the book goes on, the less they eat.
