Zusatztext I do not know any other writer whose external world is so closely tied to another, whose sensations are more exact and indispensable, and whose world is more genuine and also more unexpected. Informationen zum Autor Ivan Bunin Klappentext One of the great achievements of twentieth-century Russian émigré literature, Dark Avenues --translated here for the first time into English in its entirety--took Bunin's poetic mastery of language to new heights. Written between 1938 and 1944 and set in the context of the Russian cultural and historical crises of the preceding decades, this collection of short fiction centres around dark, erotic liaisons. Love--in its many varied forms--is the unifying motif in a rich range of narratives, characterized by the evocative, elegiac, elegant prose for which Bunin is renowned. Zusammenfassung Written between 1938 and 1944 and set in the context of a disintegrating Russian culture, this collection of short fiction centres around dark, erotic liaisons told in prose.
