Excerpt from The Adolescence of Zhenya Luvers Pastemak's prose is an extension of his poetry, with the same prosaic quality and the same unexpectedness of imagery. In 1925 he published his only collection of stories, in which appeared the present work, The Adolescence of Zhenge Luvers. The story is virtually plotless, full of reminiscences which Pasternak objec tivizes; a young girl's reactions to the world about her seem to become part of that very world. Another story is Air Ways set against the background of the 1917 Revolution, depicting in a fragmentary and quite unsentimental manner a father's inability to save his illegitimate son, arrested for taking part in a counter revolutionary conspiracy. But the story as such is less important than its imagery. Safe Conduct (1981) isan autobiographical account of the poet's youth and early spiritual development.
