Description

Excerpt from Resurrection: Volumes I-II; What Is Art? The Christian Teaching About two minutes later, a short, full-breasted young woman, in a gray cloak, thrown over a white vest and a white skirt, walked briskly out of the door, swiftly turned around, and stopped near the warden. The woman's feet were clad in linen stockings, and over them she wore the prison shoes; her head was wrapped in a white kerchief, underneath which, apparently with design, protruded ring lets of curling black hair. The woman's whole counte nance was of that peculiar whiteness which is found on the faces of persons who have passed a long time indoors, and which reminds one of potato sprouts in a cellar. Of the same colour were her small, broad hands, and her white, full neck, which was visible from behind the large collar of the cloak. In this countenance, especially against the dull pallor of the face, stood out strikingly a pair of jet-black, sparkling, slightly swollen, but very lively eyes, one of which was a bit awry. She carried herself very erect, extending her swelling bosom. Upon arriving in the corridor, she threw her head back a little, looked the warden straight in the eyes, and stood ready to execute anything that might be demanded of her. The warden was on the point of locking the door, when from it emerged the pale, austere, wrinkled face of a straight-haired old woman. The old woman began to tell Maslova something; but the warden pressed the door against her head, and so it disappeared. In the cell a feminine voice burst out laughing. Maslova herself smiled, and turned toward the barred little window Of the door. The old woman pressed her face to it, and said in a hoarse voice.
