Book Excerpt:

"What have you got?" whispered Ikonin at this point.

I showed him.

"Oh, I know that," he said.

"Will you make an exchange, then?"

"No. Besides, it would be all the same for me if I did," he contrived to whisper just as the professor called us up to the blackboard. "I don't feel up to anything to-day."

"Then everything is lost!" I thought to myself. Instead of the brilliant result which I had anticipated I should be for ever covered with shame—more so even than Ikonin! Suddenly, under the very eyes of the professor, Ikonin turned to me, snatched my ticket out of my hands, and handed me his own. I looked at his ticket. It was Newton's Binomial!

The professor was a youngish man, with a pleasant, clever expression of face—an effect chiefly due to the prominence of the lower part of his forehead.

"What? Are you exchanging tickets, gentlemen?". . . Read More

Childhood, Boyhood and Youth was Tolstoi's first novel, it is the novel, along with Turgenev's 'Sketches' which, at least in it's first part 'Childhood', best celebrates Russian country life and the peasantry. Some of the descriptions of nature would not look out of place from Turgenev's best works,

Childhood, Boyhood, and Youth were Tolstoy's first published works; they are loosely based on his early life up to his university days, told from the perspective of a boy named Nikolenka as he makes his way through the joys and miseries of childhood and early adulthood. Some parts of the trilogy are

Prima carte a lui Lev Nikolaevici Tolstoi. Certifică un mare prozator.

Tolstoi a fost un sever observator al păcatelor celorlalți și, nu în ultimul rînd, al păcatelor proprii. Detesta fățărnicia și înfumurarea. Avea și o latură masochistă. Povestește că se ascundea într-o magazie și se biciuia cu frî

Upečatljiv početak jednog velikog književnog opusa. Kada kažem početak, ne mislim samo na trilogiju u celini, već na prvi pasus Detinjstva – ubijena muva pada na nos i budi usnulog desetogodišnjeg junaka, koji dremljivo i razdraženo počinje da sagledava svet oko sebe. Otvoriti oči ujutru, uvek je su

Selindžer je jednom napisao da ono što ga stvarno obara jeste knjiga posle koje poželiš da ti je njen pisac najbolji prijatelj, i da možeš da ga okreneš telefonom kad god ti dođe.

Prva knjiga u životu koja me je oborila u toj meri da sam poželeo sve što je Selindžer napisao, pa čak i više, da odem p

El poder de León Tolstói radica en que se adentra a esa cueva oscura y poco penetrable que es la psique misma del humano. En este texto, que al parecer no es de los favoritos del propio Tolstói -Lo menciona em la parte de "recuerdos" anexos al libro-, es una mezcla entre sus recuerdos de infancia, e

Achei esse livro excepcional. Ainda está muito fresco em minha mente, o que me impede um pouco de dizer o que senti exatamente, ao lê-lo. Já se sente aqui aquele tom de arrependimento, de busca da redenção por uma vida desperdiçada, que se vê em "A morte de Ivan Ilitch". Mas é, acima de tudo, um liv

Možda sam imao prevelika očekivanja. Uz Anu Karenjinu i Rat i mir, dve najomiljenije Tolstojeve knjige su mi Smrt Ivana Iljiča i Porodična sreća. Pa tek onda Vaskrsenje. Računao sam da bi ovaj polu-autobiografski triptih o detinjstvu i mladosti mogao da se "umeša u borbu za najviše pozicije", ali ni
