Synopsis

The largest, most comprehensive anthology of its kind, "50 Writers" brings together significant, representative stories from every decade of the 20th century. It includes the prose of officially recognised writers and dissidents, well-known and neglected or forgotten ones, and new authors at the end of the 20th century. The selections reflect the various literary trends and approaches to depicting reality in the 20th century: traditional realism, modernism, socialist realism, and post-modernism. Taken as a whole, the stories capture every major aspect of Russian life, history and culture in the 20th century. The rich array of themes and styles will be of tremendous interest to students and readers who want to learn about Russia through the engaging genre of the short story.
