About This Book

Written during Bunin's period of self-imposed exile in 1927-28, this work belongs to a popular 19th-century Russian genre: the autobiographical novel. These novels typically depict the narrator's childhood as a joyous time, lived amidst the bucolic Russian landscape. Bunin (1870-1953) carries on the tradition: Arseniev is born into the shabby gentry (like Bunin) and weathers youth's storms in the heart of his loving yet eccentric family. Although Bunin won the Nobel Prize for Literature, he is not well known in the West-a shame given the elegance of his prose. Aside from some lengthy passages of cloying sentimentality, Bunin writes evocatively of the period just before the Russian Revolution. This is a nice companion to Ivan Bunin: Russian Requiem 1885-1920 (LJ 6/1/93), with an excellent introduction by Wachtel (Slavic languages, Northwestern Univ.). Recommended for Russian literature collections. --Diane Gardner Premo
