|"Literature that is not the breath of contemporary
society, that dares not transmit the pains and fears of that society,
that does not warn in time against threatening moral and social dangers-such
literature does not deserve the name of literature; it is only a fašade.
Such literature loses the confidence of its own people, and its published
works are used as wastepaper instead of being read."
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (Born: December 11, 1913)
