The five : a novel of Jewish life in turn-of-the-century Odessa by Vladimir Jabotinsky( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Gesellschaftsroman über den Untergang des bürgerlich-jüdischen Odessa zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts. Eine Wiederentdeckung - Die "Buddenbrooks" am Schwarzen Meer*Im Jahr 1935 unternimmt Vladimir Jabotinsky, streitbarer Mitbegründer der zionistischen Bewegung und brillanter Feuilletonist, eine imaginär-romanhafte Reise in das alte Odessa, in dem er 1880 geboren wurde, seine Kindheit und jungen Jahre verbrachte.*Die Fünf: eine elegische Erinnerung an eine vergehende Welt, verkörpert in den fünf Geschwistern der Familie Milgrom, die in den politisch-kulturellen Wirren ihrer Zeit, zwischen revolutionärer Gewalt und Assimilation, heranwachsen.*Das damalige Odessa ist noch eine kosmopolitisch tolerante Stadt am Schwarzen Meer, ein Vielvölkergemisch, in dem das Ukrainische und das Russische, das Jüdische und das Deutsche, das Armenische und das Griechische nebeneinander existieren. Durchdrungen vom Parfüm dieser sinnlichen, vitalen und polyglotten Prosa, begegnet uns in Vladimir Jabotinskys Roman vom Verfall einer Familie ein intimes Odessa mit seinen Plätzen, Strassen und Cafés - ein theatralisches, tragisches Menschenschauspiel. Es sind die letzten Tage von Odessa. Bis vor kurzem war der 1880 in Odessa geborene Vladimir Jabotinsky allenfalls als radikaler Zionist in Deutschland bekannt. Mit der Veröffentlichung von "Die Fünf" in der Anderen Bibliothek (Band 336, wegen des grossen Erfolges aber nur noch als Erfolgsausgabe lieferbar) hat sich das geändert: "Ein grossartiger Autor" (Die Zeit); "Ein Schatz aus Wörtern" (Die Welt); "Meisterlich" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung); "Ein grosses Buch" (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
Dreams and the unconscious in nineteenth-century Russian fiction by Michael R Katz( Book )

10 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonina by Evgenii︠a︡ Tur( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Antonina is a poignant account of a young Russian woman whose life is shaped by the cruel neglect of her stepparents, the financial ruin of her father and later her husband, and - the centerpiece of the novel - her failed love affair with a sensitive but weak young man. This work is a previously untranslated section of a four-volume novel, The Niece, published in Russia in 1851. Patterned after the successful contemporary novels of the Bronte sisters - in fact, Tur names one character after the town of Millcote in Jane Eyre - Antonina was praised by another great nineteenth-century writer, Ivan Turgenev. Jehanne Gheith addresses the novel's continuing appeal in her illuminating introduction
Sanin : a novel by M Art︠s︡ybashev( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The hero of the novel exhibits a set of new values to be contrasted with the morality of the older Russian intelligentsia. Sanin is an attractive, clever, powerful, life-loving man who is, at the same time, an amoral and carnal animal, bored both by politics and by religion. During the novel he lusts after his own sister, but defends her when she is betrayed by an arrogant officer; he deflowers an innocent-but-willing virgin; and encourages a Jewish friend to end his self-doubts by commiting suicide

Pioneers : a tale of Russian-Jewish life in the 1880s by S An-Ski( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"S.A. An-sky's novel dramatizes the dilemmas of Jewish young people in late Tsarist Russia as they strive to throw off their traditional religious upbringing to adopt a secular and modern identity. The action unfolds in the town of M. in the Pale of Settlement, where an engaging cast of characters wrestles with cultural and social issues. Their exploits culminate in helping a young Jewish woman evade an arranged marriage and a young Russian woman leave home so she can pursue her studies at a European university. This startling novel reveals the tensions and triumphs of coming of age in a revolutionary time"--Provided by publisher

Devils by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Recording )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on a true event, in which a young revolutionary was murdered by his comrades, The Possessed provoked a storm of controversy for its harsh depiction of a ruthless band of Russian intellectuals, atheists, socialists, anarchists, and other radicals who attempt to incite the population of a small provincial town to revolt against the government. In contrast to Dostoevsky's savage portrait of these radicals and the violent ideas that have possessed them like demons, the author expresses great sympathy for workers and other ordinary people ill-served by those who presume to speak in their name
