Автор: Karetnyk, Bryan (Editor) Название: Russian Emigre: Short Stories from Bunin to Yanovsky ISBN: 024129973X ISBN-13(EAN): 9780241299739 Издательство: Penguin Books Ltd Рейтинг: Цена: от 868 р. Наличие на складе: Есть (1 шт.) Описание: A landmark anthology that will introduce many extraordinary, unknown Russian writers to an English-language readership for the first time
Fleeing Russia amid the chaos of the Russian Revolution and subsequent Civil War, many writers went on to settle in Paris, Berlin and elsewhere and forged new lives in exile. Much of their subsequent work, published in Russian language magazines and books, is entirely unknown in the West and has only been recently discovered in Russia itself. As well as including stories by the most famous emigre writers, Vladimir Nabokov and Ivan Bunin, this collection introduces many lesser known voices: Yuri Felzen, known as -the Russian Proust-, Nadezhda Teffi, the hugely popular and funny story writer, and Georgy Ivanov, whose work of poetic prose -The Atom Explodes- is a brilliant, haunting response to the upheaval and trauma of emigration. Exploring themes of displacement, nostalgia, loss and new beginnings, this anthology will transform the Anglophone world's understanding of Russian emigre writing in the twentieth century.
Описание: From the reign of the Tsars to the collapse of the Soviet Union and beyond, this short story has long occupied a central place in Russian culture. Included are pieces from many of the acknowledged masters of Russian literature alongside tales by long-suppressed figures. They offer a representation of an enduring form of Russian literature.

Описание: A dual-language edition of Russian stories--many appearing in English for the first time This new volume of ten short stories, with parallel translations, offers students at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature without constantly having to refer to a dictionary. The stories--many of which appear here in English for the first time--are by well-established writers like Vladimir Sorokin, Ludmila Ulitskaya, Sergey Lukyanenko, and Ludmilla Petrushevskaya as well as emerging voices like Alexander Ilichevsky, Evgeny Grishkovets, and Yulya Kisina. Drawn from the last two decades of the Soviet Union and the two decades following its collapse, they chart a period of dramatic social change, often using metaphors of the body, and represent a range of literary styles that highlight the dynamism of contemporary Russian fiction. Complete with notes, the stories make excellent reading in either language.
