A colourful translation of Tolstoy’s most vital brief fiction through the award-winning translators of struggle and Peace.
Here are 11 masterful tales from the mature writer, a few autobiographical, others ethical parables, and all instructed with the evocative strength that used to be Tolstoy’s by myself. They comprise “The Prisoner of the Caucasus,” encouraged by way of Tolstoy's personal stories as a soldier within the Chechen battle, “Hadji Murat,” the novella Harold Bloom known as “the top tale within the world,” “The Devil,” a desirable story of sexual obsession, and the distinguished “The loss of life of Ivan Ilyich,” an extreme and relocating exam of demise and the probabilities of redemption.
Pevear and Volokhonsky’s translation captures the richness, immediacy, and multiplicity of Tolstoy’s language, and divulges the writer as a passionate ethical advisor, an unflinching seeker of fact, and eventually, a author of tolerating and common artwork.

In spite of the darkness of the next five years I found that the story could not now be wholly abandoned, and I plodded on, mostly by night, till I stood by Balin’s tomb in Moria. There I halted for a long while. It was almost a year later when I went on and so came to Lothlórien and the Great River late in 1941. In the next year I wrote the first drafts of the matter that now stands as Book Three, and the beginnings of chapters I and III of Book Five; and there as the beacons flared in Anórien and Théoden came to Harrowdale I stopped.
Some new misreadings entered into the text, while at the same time others were fixed. In the worst instance, one line of the ring inscription in the chapter ‘The Shadow of the Past’ of The Fellowship of the Ring was simply dropped. , in one edition of The Fellowship of the Ring, the closing two sentences of ‘The Council of Elrond’ simply and inexplicably disappeared. Such glitches have been very much the exception, not the rule, and the text has otherwise maintained a consistency and integrity throughout its computerized evolution.
These, and the indulgence of his publisher, allowed Tolkien a luxury few authors enjoy: multiple chances not only to correct his text but to improve it, and to further develop the languages, geography, and peoples of Middle-earth.
