A history of Russian literature by Victor Terras ( Book )
9 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 1,301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This magisterial work, written by one of the world's foremost Slavic scholars, presents a survey of Russian literature from its beginnings in the eleventh century to modern times. Victor Terras argues eloquently that Russian literature has reflected, defined, and shaped the nation's beliefs and goals, and he sets his survey against a background of social and political developments and religious and philosophic thought. He traces a rich literary heritage that ranges from the early folklore, the medieval literatures, the dissident and emigre writing after the revolution, and the masterful realist fiction of Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoi, to the dissident literary movement that followed Stalin's death. - Publisher

Malenʹkie tragedii by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin ( Book )

The four plays that make up the Little Tragedies are deceptively simple. They are studies of greed, envy, obsession and human limitation. Each is a variation on the theme of impure love and death: the Miserly Knight is about a father killed by his love for gold, Mozart and Salieri is the story of a murder motivated by artistic envy; the Stone Guest is the story of Don Juan, killed by a statue of his latest conquest's dead husband; and the Feast in the Time of Plague is about the obsessive, excessive love of life itself

The gambler by Fyodor Dostoyevsky ( Book )
2 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this short novel, Fyodor Dostoevsky tells the story of Alexey Ivanovitch, a young tutor working in the household of an imperious Russian general. Alexey tries to break through the wall of the established order in Russia, but instead becomes mired in the endless downward spiral of betting and loss. His intense and inescapable addiction is accentuated by his affair with the General's cruel yet seductive niece, Polina. In The Gambler, Dostoevsky reaches the heights of drama with this psychological portrait."--BOOK JACKET
