Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A new translation of the hilarious picaresque about a man with an indomitable spirit

 

The Enchanted Wanderer is a Russian Candide with a revolutionary edge, a picaresque that features a fast-talking monk named Ivan who is at war, it seems, with every level of society. Working as a carriage man for a Count, Ivan accidentally causes the death of a monk, which leads to his being ostracized by the local peasantry . . . until the dead monk returns as a ghost to guide him through trouble upon trouble.

About the Author

Nikolai Leskov (1831–1895) was one of Russia’s greatest writers. Anton Chekhov considered him his “teacher,” and Tolstoy hailed his courageous, anti-nihilist writing. Among his best-known works is Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk.

 

Ian Dreiblatt translated Leo Tolstoy’s Death of Ivan Ilych for the Art of the Novella series.
