Notes from underground, White nights, the dream of a ridiculous man, and selections from the House of the dead by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )

10 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The anonymous narrator of Notes from Underground is a bitter, misanthropic man living alone in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the 1860s. He is a veteran of the Russian civil service who has recently been able to retire because he has inherited some money. The novel consists of the "notes" that the man writes, a confused and often contradictory set of memoirs or confessions describing and explaining his alienation from modern society. Notes from Underground is divided into two sections. The first, "Underground," is shorter and set in the 1860s, when the Underground Man is forty years old. This section serves as an introduction to the character of the Underground Man, explaining his theories about his antagonistic position toward society. ... The second fragment of Notes from Underground, entitled "Apropos of the Wet Snow," describes specific events in the Underground Manʹs life in the 1840s, when he was twenty-four years old. In a sense, this section serves as a practical illustration of the more abstract ideas the Underground Man sets forth in the first section. This second section reveals the narratorʹs progression from his youthful perspective, influenced by Romanticism and ideals of "the beautiful and lofty," to his mature perspective in 1860, which is purely cynical about beauty, loftiness, and literariness in general. -- from http://www.sparknotes.com (Feb. 26, 2014)

Diary of a madman, and other stories by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )

9 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some call him a Russian Mark Twain. And with his special blend of comedy, social commentary, and fantasy, Nikolai Gogol paved the way for his countrymen Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. This sampling of Gogol's works includes the increasingly fantastic entries of 'The Diary of a Madman,' followed by the wonderfully surrealistic 'The Nose,' in which the title character embarks on some unlikely activities when separated from its owner's face. In 'The Carriage,' a pompous landowner gets his comeuppance when he attempts to impress a general. Rounding out the collection are the woefully comic tale of a clerk's acquisition of 'The Overcoat' and the celebrated novella 'Taras Bulba' about the Ukrainian mythic hero said to have led a bloody Cossack revolt against the Poles

The Golovlyov family by Mikhail Evgrafovich Saltykov( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[This book] is one of the last-translated, but highest-ranking, realistic novels of nineteenth-century Russia. The vicious circle of greed, self-pity and hypocritical repentance perpetuated by Arina Petrovna, her children, and her children's children in pursuit of money brings disaster to bear on Golovlovo, the gray, half-ruined estate where family and servants conspire against their mistress. -Back cover

Isaac Babel : the lonely years, 1925-1939 ; unpublished stories and private correspondence. by I Babelʹ( Book )

9 editions published between 1964 and 1995 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book Description: The Lonely Years, a collection of private correspondence, is essential to an understanding of Isaac Babel's life and works. Babel rose to fame in 1920s Russia for such books as Red Cavalry and Odessa Stories. But as Stalin's regime grew repressive, he found it increasingly difficult to write or publish. He was finally arrested in 1939, never to be heard from again. Alternately tender and biting, and accompanied by nine stories from the "lonely years," these letters show an individual laboring against all odds to remain true to his craft and ideals. This edition contains a new introduction, based on previously unreleased information from the KGB files
