Seltzer Thomas (ed.) Best Russian Short Stories

Без выходных данных.
Thomas Seltzer was a Russian-American translator, editor and book publisher. A very comprehensive anthology of the Russian short stories in the English language, which gives a fair notion of the achievement in that field. Contains over 20 stories written by various Russian authors, including stories by Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Saltykov, Korolenko, Garshin, Chekhov, Sologub, Potapenko, Semyonov, Gorky, Artzybashev, Kuprin, Andreyev, and others. "I thought this anthology was great. I had never really read any works by any of the authors mentioned before and would have to credit this collection of short stories as my first introduction to Russian literature". Below is the list of the short stories that are included in this anthology.
"The Queen of Spades" by Alexander Pushkin - A poor man begs an old woman for her secret to winning games. Shows how poor people can be possessed by greed if they have the opportunity to. "The Cloak" by Nikolai Gogol - An insignificant person saves up his money for a new cloak. He gets a new one, but it gets stolen. He dies soon afterwards, but haunts people and takes their cloaks. "The District Doctor" by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev - A doctor visits a young woman who he falls in love with. She, knowing that she will die soon, falls in love with him, just so she can love someone before she dies. She dies, and the doctor is seen recollecting this story to another one of his patient (sort of like Vertigo, if you get what I mean). "The Christmas Tree and the Wedding" by Fyodor Dostoevsky - A man settles himself a marriage with a girl when she is around 10 or 11, knowing that when she does get married, the husband will get a lot of money. Another man witnesses him being cold and cruel to him, later on he sees the man getting married to the girl...
