    which ones does he let go of in order to survive? First of all, it is very important to clarify that survival in the novel is very relative. Surviving for some of the prisoners is merely enduring life, no matter the cost, such as for Fetiukov who stoops even to collecting other prisoners’ left over cigarette buds, even though he puts himself in danger of catching a syphilitic lip. For Shukhov however, surviving goes far beyond making it alive. Shukhov shares Kuziomin’s same belief that those who

    "Oh heavenly powers restore him!" (Hamlet III.i). Many times in a lifetime, one begs and beseeches the heavenly powers to change, restore or reinstitute an event before its catastrophic ending. It was a cold night, icy winds were blowing along 23rd Street, strollers were few; only a few drunkards and vagabonds who had found comfort in the canner of a doorway; their long, ragged coats wrapped around them because it had no buttons; holding themselves by the shoulders, they rocked while they chatted

But to what sound her listening ear stoops she? What netherworld gulf-whispers doth she hear, In answering echoes from what planisphere, Along the wind, along the estuary? She sinks into her spell: and when full soon Her lips move and she soars into her song, What creatures of the midmost
