Sample text

Ivan's simple-minded statements concerning the lunar orbit reveal his naive faith in a pantheistic God, and he is looked at with disbelief by the educated Captain. To Ivan, God is revealed in nature. Note in particular that the Captain's sneering about Ivan's ignorance does not disturb Ivan at all. As in his later discussion with Alyosha, Ivan reveals an instinctive faith which needs no sophisticated theological argument. He is full of old Russian peasant superstitions, and Solzhenitsyn considers such faith to be superior to an adherence to the superficial rules of the Russian Orthodox church or to Alyosha's impractical Baptist beliefs.

He threatens Tyurin with an additional sentence for condoning the theft, but the gang boss is not afraid. He warns Der that he will lose his life if he utters a word about the roofing-felt. The rest of the gang, including Ivan Denisovich, is ready to use physical violence to protect their boss. Der becomes afraid and backs down, and as he leaves, Tyurin berates him about the non-functioning hoist and demands that the gang be given better work rates for having to carry the mortar and the bricks to the second story by hand.

This is the third time that Ivan has exposed himself to the potential anger of the authorities. First, he was lucky not to be punished more severely for sleeping in late; then he took a chance in taking too long to finish his brick wall, and he made the guards wait for him. Now, he risks severe punishment by smuggling in a piece of steel, which could be defined as a weapon. Interestingly, this is the only time that we see Ivan pray to God. Later, he ungratefully expresses doubt in the efficacy of prayer.
