Abstract: The article presents the issue of Russian national identity as portrayed in the literary works by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. It analyses the books Solzhenitsyn wrote after his return to Russia in 1994 against the background of his journalistic comments published in different periods of his life. The research method adopted allows the author to observe a certain evolution in Solzhenitsyn’s approach towards the issue of “Russianness” and to disclose his roots grounded in traditional Russian thought, as the solutions he offers to social issues in Russia resound with old ideas, such as the concepts formulated by the 19th-Century Slavophilia movement, but also some rudiments of socialist ideology.
