Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sholokhov's book introduces the reader to a New World that is not merely the Don Region, but the world of the author's inimitably poetic prose; giving fifteen years of his life to the creation of And Quiet Flows the Don. He began the first book at the age of twenty, in 1926. The last was finished in 1940. While Leo Tolstoy's novel War and Peace (1863-69) immortalized the Napoleonic campaigns to the eve of the Decembrist revolt, And Quiet Flows the Don showed the destruction of the Cossacks and the birth of a new society.

About the Author

Sholokhov is the Soviet Union's most famous and widely honored living novelist. In 1965 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

A mighty novel about the members of a Don Cossack village during the terrible days of the First World War and the Russian Civil War which followed. The characters are vividly drawn and engrossing. Deservedly a winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.
