Leo Tolstoyâ?™s short works, like his novels, show readers his narrative genius, keen observation, and historical acumenâ?”albeit on a smaller scale.

This Norton Critical Edition presents twelve of Tolstoy�s best-known stories, based on the Louise and Aylmer Maude translations (except �Alyosha Gorshok�), which have been revised by the editor for enhanced comprehension and annotated for student readers. The Second Edition newly includes �A Prisoner in the Caucasus,� �Father Sergius,� and �After the Ball,� in addition to Michael Katz�s new translation of �Alyosha Gorshok.� Together these stories represent the best of the author�s short fiction before War and Peace and after Anna Karenina.

�Backgrounds and Sources� includes two Tolstoy memoirs, A History of Yesterday (1851) and The Memoirs of a Madman (1884), as well as entries�expanded in the Second Edition�from Tolstoy�s �Diary for 1855� and selected letters (1858�95) that shed light on the author�s creative process.

�Criticism� collects twenty-three essays by Russian and western scholars, six of which are new to this Second Edition. Interpretations focus both on Tolstoy�s language and art and on specific themes and motifs in individual stories. Contributors include John M. Kopper, Gary Saul Morson, N. G. Chernyshevsky, Mikhail Bakhtin, Harsha Ram, John Bayley, Vladimir Nabokov, Ruth Rischin, Margaret Ziolkowski, and Donald Barthelme.

A Chronology of Tolstoyâ?™s life and work and an updated Selected Bibliography are also included.

This is a collection; very well done.

Norton Critical Editions are almost always among the best scholarly/student editions for literature, and the footnotes and critical content here are no exception. However, at least in my printing (2nd edition), an entire section is printed twice, resulting in three of the stories being incomplete. The double printed content is multiple pages and clips The Kreutzer Sonata, Master and Man, and Father Sergius. Would be perfect except for this printing error, which I have encountered with NCEs before and is my only real complaint with the series. Hopefully this is fixed in later printings.

This was my first experience with Tolstoy. I only read a few short stories that were required for my lit class, but I'm excited to read more. Great collection.

Book is in great condition. There was a problem in shipping but when something's coming from the UK to the US, I should have expected it. Can't wait to start reading the book for class!
