9781468301564: The Golovlyov Family

Recognized as a classic since its first publication in Russia in 1880, The Golovlyov Family recounts the history of a family of landowners through three generations.

Arina Petrovna, matriarch of the estate, maintains strict control of her world -- until the balance of power is upset by her scheming, hypocritical son, whose nickname is "little Judas."

What follows is a disquieting story of isolation and disintegration, in a place reminiscent of the elusive Macondo in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude. In this masterful translation "to be preferred at all costs . . . Cioran does have an edge . . . in the closeness to the original as well as sensitivity to telling phrases and expressions" (Encyclopedia of Literary Translation into English).

About the Author:

M. E. Saltykov (1826-1889) was a major Russian satirist of the nineteenth century. He wrote mostly satirical journalism, though his only novel, The Golovlyov Family, is considered his masterpiece and was proclaimed by D. S. Mirsky to be the darkest book in all of Russian literature. S. D. Cioran is Professor Emeritus of Russian literature at McMaster University. His other translations include Fyodor Sologub's The Petty Demon and Dostoevsky's The Crocodile, both available from Ardis.
