Аbstract: The article deals with social problems in the works of A. I. Solzhenitsyn and L. N. Tolstoy, the essence of their approach to the relationship between the institutions of power and human beings. Writers-realists are always interested in the contradictions in society and state structure, problems of statism and the role of society in history. This is the reason why at all times plots dealing with confrontation and resistance, with the affirmation of Christian values, do not lose their sharpness and relevance. The readership of A. I. Solzhenitsyn and L. N. Tolstoy, which came from different social groups and segments of the population,have always put the important issues the writers dealt with under close scrutiny. These writers were never indifferent to the problems of realism, where ideals and expectations inherent to the human mind have always come into conflict with real world.
