A monumental novel in the Great Russian tradition which has been rightly compared with War and Peace It focuses on the Battle of Stalingrad but covers a Science Institute various prison camps and a concentration camp The list of characters is vast and the dramatis personae in my edition was well used Grossman was a journalist who covered the Battle of Stalingrad from the front line and his experience shows However this is like War and Peace very much not just a war novel Its scope is broad and it provides a penetrating analysis of the Soviet system and Stalinism in particular As you would expect the plot is interwoven with numerous themes Grossman was a Jew and Jewish identity is explored through one of the main characters the scientist Victor Shtrum The description of the gas chamber is a very powerful piece of writing focussing as it does on a child and an unrelated woman who provides comfort Her eyes which have read Homer Izvestia Huckleberry Finn and Mayne Reid that had looked at good people and bad people that had seen the geese in the green meadows of Kursk the stars above the observatory at Pulkovo the glitter of surgical steel the Mona Lisa in the Louvre tomatoes and turnips in the bins at market the blue water of Issyk Kul her eyes were no longer of any use to her If someone had blinded her she would have felt no sense of lossSofya Levinton felt the boy s body subside in her arms This boy with his slight bird like body has left before her I ve become a mother she thought That was her last thoughtHer heart however still had life in it it contracted ached and felt pity for all of you both living and dead Sofya Osipovna felt a wave of nausea She pressed David now a doll to herself she became dead a doll Grossman despite the horrors he describes clearly still believes in the fundamental goodness of humanity One of the main focuses of the book is the criticism of Stalinism the sheer pointless stupidity of a totalitarian regime A number of the characters in the novel are old Bolsheviks who are struggling to come to terms with Stalin s regime and especially with the mass arrests of 1937 We see a number of them in camps and prisons trying to create some meaning in their situation The comparisons with War and Peace have some limitations Tolstoy was looking back Grossman was actually there and his journalistic training shines through He is able to compare the regimes of Hitler and Stalin and note the similarities This is a great novel which takes you along with its sheer power and the magnificence of the writing The canvas may sometimes be like a Breughel but Grossman s writing is suffused with optimism about humanity despite it all
