"Best Russian Short Stories" was initially published in 1917 and edited by Thomas Seltzer. The introduction praises the Russian sensibility for its "simplicity, naturalness, veraciousness." A collection of short fiction by Gogol, Dostoyevsky, Pushkin, Turgenev, Chekhov, Gorky, and many others, each selection is the work of a master. In this collection of Russian stories, editor and compiler Thomas Seltzer selects from a range of the best examples of 19th and early 20th century Russian literature. As a survey of famous authors at the height of the powers, as well as some writers who have been unjustly neglected, this anthology is indispensable.
