Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida

Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For fans of fairy tales and the literary supernatural: a unique collection of Russian short stories from the last 200 years
 
In these folk tales, young women go on long and perilous quests, wicked stepmothers turn children into geese, and tsars ask dangerous riddles, with help or hindrance from magical dolls, cannibal witches, talking skulls, stolen wives, and brothers disguised as wise birds. Some of the stories here were collected by folklorists during the last two centuries, while the others are reworkings of oral tales by four of the greatest writers in Russian literature: Nadezhda Teffi, Pavel Bazhov, Andrey Platonov, and Alexander Pushkin, author of Eugene Onegin, the classic Russian novel in verse. Among the many classic stories included here are the tales of Baba Yaga, Vasilisa the Beautiful, Father Frost, and the Frog Princess.

Synopsis:

This original anthology of short stories covers two centuries of Russian literary tradition, from the early nineteenth century to the collapse of the Soviet Union and beyond, and includes not only well-known classics but also modern masterpieces—many of them previously censored.

  • First time in Penguin Classics
  • Features an introduction to the history of the Russian short story, prefaces to the individual writers, chronology, explanatory notes, and suggestions for further reading
