Abstract:

Those who demand of fiction more than mere diversion turn inevitably to the works of the great Russian writers. In this volume the men who gave their country an unexcelled art and a redeeming conscience are represented by such short stories as no other nation has yet parallelled. Here are names to conjure with--Pushkin, Gogol, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Gorky, Andreyev, Artzibashev, Kuprin, Bunin--writers of such compassion and profundity as to have changed the scope and meaning of the short story as a form of art and an expression of life. This volume contains twenty-two short stories by seventeen famous Russian writers.
