    1 thought on “Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida”

    1. From Kharms' "The Old Woman"-Out on the street, boys are shouting, making a horrible din. I lie there and think up ways of putting them to death. The one I like the best would be to infect them with tetanus so they would suddenly stop moving. Then their parents drag them back home. They lie in their little beds and can't even eat, because their mouths won't open. They're fed artificially. After a week the tetanus wears off, but the children are so weak they have to lie another whole month in bed [...]

    2. It is likely, if you're reading this review or browsing this , that you like Russian literature, short stories or possible both. In which case, in brief, you should definitely read this book. Now the slightly longer review: Russian literature is highly respected, it's biggest names critically acclaimed and rightly placed upon literature's highest pedastals, and one would be perfectly justified in saying that it is the long form prose novel that Russia and it's authors are most famous for; rather [...]

    3. For the stories alone I would give this four stars but it deserves the extra star for the inclusion of excellent, informative background material; the readable introduction; the short biography preceding each author’s work; the appendix notes; and even some interesting explanation of Russian names.Russian literature, the introduction explains, is comparatively young and the published dates run from the earliest, 1834 to the latest in 1998. Two things struck me about the early ones, though I do [...]

    4. I was always going to enjoy this book. I have loved Russian literature from an early age, and this short story collection is a Hall of Fame of Russian literature. With a few exceptions, which the editor Robert Chandler highlights in his introduction, the big names are all here. The main omissions are Gorky, Grossman, Pasternak and Sholokhov, because their best work is in other forms like novels or poetry, and Nabokov, because agreement couldn’t be reached with his publishers. But there’s sti [...]

    6. Excellent collection of short stories from a country where short stories have forever flourished. From Tolstoy to Chekhov to newer authors such as Kharms and Dovlatov, some for me were re-reads and some were read for the first time. And then there's my favorite satirist of all time, Mikhail Zoshckenko, who writes about life in Russia in the 1920's. He says of living conditions in Moscow, "In twenty years' time, maybe even less, every citizen will have a whole room to himself. But in the meantim [...]

    7. I have read a fair amount of Russian short stories. This collection is excellent. It features the standard masters of Dostoyevsky, Turgenev, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Pushkin (The Queen of Spades), Lermontov (The Fatalist) Gogol and Bunin but there is much more. Two of the gems of the collection are Nikolay Leskov's "The Steel Flea" and Yuri Buida'a "Sinbad the Sailor".There is not an overabundance of Russian female prose writers present in 19th century and early 20th century literature. This collection [...]

    8. I could describe how Gogol's short story The overcoat drove me nuts, but I won't. Just that I had to pause, leave the bookmark in the middle of the story and move on to the next story. After a week I got back to the overcoat and I recommend it. All the stories are fantastically imaginative and can be read over and over and over

    9. At last, I finished it. Yes it took too long to finish, as always, because of this being 'classic' writing. Being born in the times when India and USSR friendship was on its prime, Russian literature has always intrigued me. And that way, this is a treat for me. Each chapter giving detailed information about the writers, is something really interesting. And the collection, ah, so diverse and well chosen. Think I will read another one in the series too. But maybe later?

    10. A wonderful anthology of Russian stories from the Romantic period to the years after glasnost. Though many of these stories have been collected before--The Queen of Spades, the Greatcoat, etc.--it contains some real forgotten gems, at least in English, in powerful translations that capture the flavor of Russian culture. Particularly favorites are Bulgakov's "The Embroidered Towel," about a med school graduate who has to attempt his first amputation in the provinces, hoping the entire time the pa [...]

    11. an excellent anthology. a little of everything, from Pushkin's 'Queen of Spades' (one of the best short stories ever written) & Gogol's 'Greatcoat' ('Overcoat' in other translations) to overlooked soviet-era gems like the marvelous 'Quadraturin' by Krzhizhanovsky & 'Old Woman' by the incomparable Daniil Kharms. a terrific overview of short stories by a culture that is frequently pigeon-holed as being all about 800-page novels. and, yes, tolstoy & doestoevsky are here, too.

    12. An excellent anthology! A collection of writers covering the last hundred and fifty years or so of Russian literature, this is a must have for anyone wanting to discover the world of Russian short stories.I found myself reading one story after the other, I devoured this book and have since tracked down other works by some of the authors that contribute to it.

    13. Excellent selection from the Golden Age to the late Soviet period, and a good mix of tones - humorous, poignant, ironic, tragic - but authentically Russian all the way through. Also has excellent informative biographies of the authors.

    14. Stories rich with prosaic beauty, social commentary, political observations and emotional depth, as with so much Russian literature. The very best of the best. The Third Son is perhaps my utter favourite in this collection and a story that lingers with me still.

    15. I took a class on Russian short stories after falling in love with Nabokov, and was pleasantly surprised at just how much I continued to love Russian literature. This was the main text and although I'm not positive we read every story within it, I loved what I did read.

    16. I've actually read most of these stories in other books, but this collection has authors that are difficult to find in English. Such as: Zinovyeva-Annibal, Teffi, Krzhizhanovsky, Dobychin, Shukshin, Eppel, and Buida.

    17. A well-chosen collection that covers the gamut of Russian short fiction. The translations are excellent, and the introductions provide key insights into the writers and their times. Highly recommended.

    18. Excellent collection from early 19th century to late 20th with interesting and thoughtful intros. I liked it so much I want to make notes on some of the writers. Zoshchenko was hilarious, Platonov moving, Shalomov on the Gulag, no adjective will serve.

    19. A wonderful compilation of Russian short stories, and an excellent selection of lesser-known authors. Beautifully edited by Robert Chandler. Highly recommended.

    20. I only read selections of this for class, but everything we read, I loved! I will probably get around to reading the whole thing chronologically at some point.

    21. 'Don't tell Fedya I hit you. I didn't realise, brother, that you're a novelist.''I won't,' answered PlatonovE SNAKE CHARMER by VARLAM TIKHONOVICH SHALAMOV

    22. I've had to place stickers over her chest, but what a great book. I work at a high school. The last short story is shattering.

    23. Excellent way to become familiar with the most famous and talented Russian authors from the early 19th century to the 1980s.

    24. I remember that I loved the Russian short stories when I was a teenager so I'm surprised that I'm not such a fan of the classic Russian novels as an adult.

    25. 'The Old Woman'was delightfully creepy and reminded me somewhat of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's 'The Yellow Wallpaper.'

    26. Dostoyevsky's 'Bobok' is yet another masterpiece by this Russian genius! An interesting way to look at what happens to us after we pass awayry interesting
