This collection brings together six of Turgenev's best-known `long' short
stories, in which he turns his skills of psychological observation and
black comedy to subjects as diverse as the tyranny of serfdom, love, and
revenge on the Russian steppes. These stories all display the elegance and
clarity of Turgenev's finest writing. Richard Freeborn was until recently
Professor of Russian at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies,
London. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has
made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each
affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing
the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including
expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the
