Synopsis: Mikhail Sholokhov is rightly considered both in his own country and abroad the foremost Soviet novelist of his generation.
Born in 1905, in a working Cossack family, Sholokhov’s most impressionable years were those of the Russian Revolution and Civil War, which he had described with penetrating insight.
In 1926, he began his great epic of the Civil War And Quite Flows the Don, and, to use his own words,"found himself" as a writer "in that arduous and joyful creative work". And Quite Flows the Don was completed in 1940. The first book of Virgin Soil Upturned came out in 1932. The second was competed in 1960. In 1957 Sholokhov wrote a story, The Fate of a Man, which has become world famous. Also, he was working on They Fought for Their Country, a novel about Soviet people in the Second World War. Sholokhov is truly a writer of the people. His books have been printed in more than thirty-two million copies and translated into sixty-four languages.

With a telling humanity Sholokhov depicts the faults and strivings, the suffering and laughter both of the fighters for progress with whom he himself has such deep ties, and their opponents.
