Summary

The short stories included in this volume, written between 1855 and 1905, represent the best of Tolstoy's shorter works both before War and Peace and after Anna Karenina.

The Louise and Aylmer Maude translations of Tolstoy's short fiction have been revised by Michael R. Katz for increased accessibility. Each story has been fully annotated for student readers.

Backgrounds and Sources includes two Tolstoy memoirs, A History of Yesterday (1851) and The Memoirs of a Madman (1884), as well as excerpts from Tolstoy's diaries and letters that shed light on his ethos.

Criticism is comprised of nineteen wide-ranging analyses by both Russian and Western scholars.

Included are essays by Gary Saul Morson, Caryl Emerson, N. G. Chernyshevsky, Mikhail Bakhtin, John Bayley, Vladimir Nabokov, N. K. Mikhailovsky, and Donald Barthelme, among others.

A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
