The analysis found that the nationalism of Solzhenitsyn is exquisitely expressed in his novel through his characters and by symbolism and allegories. Each of the novels offers various aspects of nationalism. However, three main themes were found; idealization of the Russia before the revolution and criticism of the Soviet Union, awareness and a moralistic stance. In all three of them the criticism of the Soviet Union was the most obvious theme. In One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich nationalism was expressed as a religious coping mechanism for the prisoners. In Matryonas Home, nationalism was especially obvious in the idealization of the Russia before the revolution. In the final novel nationalism was found in the obvious criticism of the communist system. (Less)
