Description

Modern Russian Fables is a witty series of short Fables from a 20th century Russian writer translated from the original Russian into modern English in order to bring out the subtleties displayed by the Russian author in the original language. These fables show how the Russian author has used language to express double meanings. The witticisms included in this collection of stories are based on a play upon words and phrases and their word components.The witticisms are stylistic devices most often used by Russian speakers to achieve a humorous effect.The fables have been chosen and newly translated and edited by Tamara Moreton, author of the Practical Russian Reader series, and novelist Alan Moreton, author of The Book Traveller and At the World’s End among other English novels.show more
