Abstract/Description: This thesis examines the changing conditions between Russian labor camps from the Tsarist to Soviet regime. Shifts in labor condtions, quality of life and role of relationships within labor camps are illustrated through critical analysis of The House of the Dead by Fyodor Dostoevsky and The Gulag Archieplago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. In the scope of this thesis, descriptions in The House of the Dead epitimize Tsarist rule up to 1917 and descriptions in The Gulag Archipelago span the Soviet Era from 1918-1956. This thesis includes the literary significance and cultural impact of each novel as a foundation for discussion of the political and social consequences of labor camps in Russia during Tsarist and Soviet rule.
