Freedom – a Way of Surviving in the Novel “Everything Flows”

Freedom, birth flying.

The present study focuses on the way in which a great humanist, the Russian writer Vasily Grossman, succeeds in understanding ‘his century’, the century of the totalitarian regimes which denied and suppressed one of the most important human values: freedom. In his novel Everything Flows, Grossman concentrates on the idea that life cannot exist in the absence of ”freedom and kindness”. The absence of these two essential values made those unimaginable human tragedies possible.
