________

The greatest classic of Russian literature written more than a century ago remains surprisingly modern and relevant to today’s life. This extraordinarily powerful text seems to have been written for our times, in which wars are becoming a fact of life.
The new French translation restores Tolstoy’s original text, fills gaps that had been left in previous translations and gives the novel a new impetus and offers a chance for those who know it but have never read it, to discover this wonderful book.

The Counterfeit Bill

Leo Tolstoy

classic novel, French version, translated from Russian

Faux Coupon fr classica | classica  | classica

published: February 2009
price: $ 4,90

________

The Counterfeit Bill is a small gem by the great Russian novelist. First published as part of Tolstoi’s posthumous works in 1911, this text is based on a core philosophical premise that is strikingly relevant in the context of globalisation. Tolstoi depicts subtle and often unseen links that spread from the material word to the realm of the spirit, and points at everyone’s individual responsibility not only for one’s choices, but also for each of their consequences, which, no matter how insignificant at first, gradually, step by step, acquire frightening dimensions.

The Death of Ivan Ilyich

Leo Tolstoy

classic novel, French version, translated from Russian

La Mort dIvan Ilitch classica | classica  | classica

published: February 2009
price: $ 4,90

________

One of the emblematic texts of the great Russian writer, this novella is one of Tolstoy's best known and most widely read works in the world, together with The Kreuzer Sonata, which was written the same year (1889). In this story Tolstoy's reader is, as usual, immediately and forcefully confronted to the fundamental questions that trouble the human soul: in this case it is the sudden self-consciousness in the face of imminent death.

Tales of Belkin

Alexander Pushkin

classic novel, French version, translated from Russian

Recites de Belkine classica | classica  | classica

published: January 2009
price: $ 4,90

________

This collection of short stories is comprised of five ‘tales’, each written in a different style and with an independent story line, but which together form a harmonious whole. Pushkin’s prose is no less poetic, light and masterful than his verse, and his Tales of Belkin are a stunning display of narrative and stylistic virtuosity. These short pieces combine realism, suspense, playful mystery and literary parody for the reader’s greatest enjoyment.
