The Village (Alma Classics)
English | February 1, 2013 | ISBN: 1847492835 | EPUB | 176 Pages | 1.8 MB
Ivan Bunin's first published work, The Village is a bleak and uncompromising portrayal of rural life in south-west Russia. Set at the time of the 1905 Revolution and centering on episodes in the lives of two peasant brothers - "characters sunk so far below the average of intelligence as to be scarcely human" - it reveals the pettiness, violence and ignorance of life on the land.
At once nostalgic for a bygone more innocent age and foreshadowing the turbulences of the twentieth century, Bunin's narrative is a triumph of bitter realism, shot through with the author's classical style and precision of language.
This edition contains detailed notes on the text, extra material about the author and a carefully selected bibliography. There is also an appendix containing the first few pages of The Village in the original Russian.
