ABSTRACT
This essay considers how the structural line by line dissection of the paragraphs and the application of binary oppositions of communism vs. colonialism, death vs. life, prison vs. prisoners, humanity vs. inhumanity-animalism, freedom vs. incarceration, slave vs. master, Id vs. ego, ...applied on the book "one day in the life of Ivan Denisovich" by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, can represent the murky aspects of communism on the Russian societies. The author also runs a post-colonial review of the novel to depict a profound recognition of identity crisis as well asannihilation of such values like family, religion, hope, belief, integrity and individuality as the direct devastative results of communism of which are seen in colonialized societies, i.e. communism is being equated as the colonial powers. This phenomena is innovatively applied as a new concept called "Inner Colonization" which clearly proves that the aftermaths of communism are nothing less than colonialism in the way that both results in identity shifts and diaspora .
