Russian literature famously probes the depths of the human soul, and in this series of 36 insightful lectures prepared by a frequently honored teacher legendary among educators in both the United States and Russia - you probe just as deeply into the extraordinary legacy that is Russian Literature itself. Professor Weil introduces you to masterpieces such as Tolstoy´s War and Peace, Dostoevsky´s Crime and Punishment, Pushkin´s Eugene Onegin, Gogol´s Dead Souls, Chekhov´s The Seagull, Pasternak´s Doctor Zhivago, and many other great novels, stories, plays, and poems. In all, you plunge into more than 40 works by a dozen writers, from Aleksandr Pushkin in the 19th century to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in the 20th century. You also investigate the origin of Russian literature itself, which traces its lineage back to powerful epic poetry and beautiful renderings of the Bible into Slavic during the Middle Ages. All of these works are treated in translation, but Professor Weil does something very unusual in the literature-in-translation arena. For almost every passage that he quotes in English, he reads an extract in the original Russian, with a fluent accent and an actor´s sense of drama.

Nietzsche regarded Thus Spoke Zarathustra as his most important work, and his story of the wandering Zarathustra has had enormous influence on subsequent culture. Nietzsche uses a mixture of homilies, parables, epigrams, and dreams to introduce some of his most striking doctrines, including the Overman (Übermensch), nihilism, and the eternal return of the same. This will appeal to all listeners interested in one of the most original and inventive works of modern philosophy. Please note: This audiobook is in Russian. 1. Russian.

This collection, first published in 1917, features the works of 10 Russian poets who were active in the early 20th century. In the preface the anthologist and translator, Paul Selver, writes: ´´It is hoped that this collection will convey a fairly adequate idea of the chief features in modern Russian poetry, a branch of Russian literature which has so far received very little serious attention in this country. In the main, the translator has considered it his duty to produce renderings which, in themselves, are reasonably good English verse. At the same time, an endeavor has been made to give the meaning of the originals as closely as the restrictions of rhyme and rhythm will permit.´´ This is a bilingual presentation: Each poem is read first in Russian and then in English translation. ©Voices of Today 2015 1.
