'The Devil',... more...

    With their penetrating psychological insight and their emphasis on human dignity, respect and forgiveness, Dostoyevsky's early short stories contain the seeds of the themes that came to his major novels.

  • Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk And Other Storiesby Nikolai Leskov; David McDuff

    Penguin Books Ltd 2015; US$ 14.09

    Five great stories from one of the most quintessentially Russian of writers, Nikolai Leskov. In the best of Leskov's stories, as in almost no others apart from those of Gogol, we can hear the voice of nineteenth-century Russia. An outsider by birth and instinct, Leskov is one of the most undeservedly neglected figures in Russian literature. He... more...

  • The Idiotby Fyodor Dostoyevsky; Ron Arad; David McDuff

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; US$ 12.68

    Inspired by an image of Christ's suffering, Dostoyevsky set out to create a protagonist with "a truly beautiful soul" and to trace the fate of such an individual as he comes into contact with the brutal reality of contemporary society.

  • Red Cavalry and Other Storiesby Isaac Babel; Efraim Sicher; David McDuff

    Penguin Books Ltd 2005; US$ 15.50

    Throughout his life Isaac Babel was torn by opposing forces, by the desire both to remain faithful to his Jewish roots and yet to be free of them. This duality of vision infuses his work with a powerful energy from the earliest tales including 'Old Shloyme' and 'Childhood', which affirm his Russian-Jewish childhood, to the relatively non-Jewish world... more...

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; US$ 14.09

    In January 1850 Dostoyevsky was sent to a remote Siberian prison camp for his part in a political conspiracy. The four years he spent there, startlingly re-created in The House of the Dead, were the most agonizing of his life. In this fictionalized account he recounts his soul-destroying incarceration through the cool, detached tones of his narrator,... more...

    In 1851, at the age of twenty-two, Tolstoy joined the Russian army and travelled to the Caucasus as a soldier.
