Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk: A Sketch

Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk: A Sketch Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this powerful and brutal short story, Leskov demonstrates the enduring truth of the Shakespearean archetype joltingly displaced to the heartland of Russia. Chastened and stifled by her marriage of convenience to a man twice her age, the young Katerina Lvovna goes yawning about the house, missing the barefoot freedom of her childhood, until she meets the feckless steward Sergei Filipych. Sergei proceeds to seduce Katerina, as he has done half the women in the town, not realizing that her passion, once freed, will attach to him so fiercely that Katerina will do anything to keep hold of him. Journalist and prose writer Nikolai Leskov is known for his powerful characterizations and the quintessentially Russian atmosphere of his stories.

Synopsis:

A new translation by Robert Chandler of the story that forms the basis of the Shostakovich opera with a foreword by Gilbert Adair.
