"It was no joke robbing five hundred
men of half an hour.” (pg.96) "The powers that be kept time
from them." (pg. 16) "The worst thing about these recounts
was it cut into your time, not theirs." (pg. 92) "'But since then, there’s been a law passed and now the sun’s highest at one.'... Did the sun come under their laws too?" (Pg. 52) "The prisoners never got to see a watch or a clock." (Pg. 136) “The prisoners never got to see a watch or a clock. And what good would it do anyways? They just went by reveille, roll call, the noon meal break, and lights out.” (Pg136) A Day in a life of Meursault One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich “If people are born every day, why shouldn’t there be a brand-new moon every four weeks?” (Pg. 91) A Cycle Beyond Our Control "There were three thousand six hundred and fifty-three days like this in his sentence, from reveille to lights out. The three extra ones were because of the leap years…” (pg144) He had “been in camps and prisons more years than you could count and had never come under any amnesty.”
He could be easily picked out from the crowd because “he was straight as a ramrod…”(pg.121-122)
Obviously, he is different from the rest because he has been at camps for the longest time.
Based on what we have discussed about time, what makes Ivan so intrigued about this man?
Does his appearance in the novel signify something? Does he represent anything of importance? Discussion Question # 1 Discussion Question # 2 Compared to the protagonist in Exiled.
How have her and Ivan’s camp experiences influenced them differently and/or similarly?
Are their attitudes more similar or different? The End LIGHTS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! “In One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, the character, Ivan, is very aware of time and the passage of time, despite the absence of clocks in the prison. It details one day in the life of Ivan, in which he and his fellow prisoners fight with authority for control over time. However, due to the repetitiveness of prison life, this one day could be viewed as an endless and futile struggle between the two sides for control over the one thing that controls them.” "Those with three years who'd gotten five more slapped on..." (pg. 53-54) "Shukov didn't have a grudge in the world now - about how long his sentence was, about how long their day was... All he thought now was: 'We'll get through! We'll get through it all!'" (Pg120)
