A hardened criminal upon his release, he eventually reforms, becoming a successful industrialist and mayor of a northern town. Despite this he is haunted by an impulsive, regretted former crime and is pursued relentlessly by the police inspector Javert. Valjean eventually gives himself up for the sake of his adopted daughter, Cosette, and her husband, Marius.

The diary of a superfluous man, and other stories by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev( Book )

22 editions published between 1904 and 2012 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in 1850, The Diary of a Superfluous Man is Turgenev's novella in the form of the diary of a dying man. With two weeks to live, Tchulkaturin takes stock of his life only to discover how purposeless, loveless, and futile it has been. The other stories in this collection are "Three Portraits," an historical reminiscence ignited by three paintings; "Three Meetings," a tale of remarkable coincidences; "Mumu." the heartbreaking story of a peasant and his dog; and "The Inn," the story of the tribulations that befall a good and honest innkeeper when he chooses to marry a much younger woman. Translated by Isabel Hapgood
The village by Ivan Alekseevich Bunin( Book )

16 editions published between 1923 and 2018 in English and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A short novel by the Nobel Prize-winning Russian author Ivan Bunin, written in 1909 and first published in 1910 by the Saint Petersburg magazine Sovremenny Mir (issues Nos. 3, 10-11) under the title Novelet. The Village caused much controversy at the time, though it was highly praised by Maxim Gorky (who from then on regarded the author as the major figure in Russian literature), among others, and is now generally regarded as Bunin's first masterpiece. Composed of brief episodes set in its author's birthplace at the time of the 1905 Revolution, it tells the story of two peasant brothers, one a brute drunk, the other a gentler, more sympathetic character. Bunin's realistic portrayal of the country life jarred with the idealized picture of "unspoiled" peasants which was common for the mainstream Russian literature, and featured the characters deemed 'offensive' by many, which were "so far below the average in terms of intelligence as to be scarcely human"

A reckless character, and other stories by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev( Book )

11 editions published between 1904 and 2005 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There were eight of us in the room, and we were discussing contemporary matters and persons, I do not understand these gentlemen! remarked A. They are fellows of a reckless sort. Really, desperate. There has never been anything of the kind before. Yes, there has, put in P., a grey-haired old man, who had been born about the twenties of the present century; there were reckless men in days gone by also. Some one said of the poet Yzykoff, that he had enthusiasm which was not directed to anything, an objectless enthusiasm; and it was much the same with those people, their recklessness was without an object. But see here, if you will permit me, I will narrate to you the story of my grandnephew. It may serve as a sample of the recklessness of those days. He made his appearance in God's daylight in the year 1828, I remember, on his father's ancestral estate, in one of the most remote nooks of a remote government of the steppes. I still preserve a distinct recollection of his father, Andri Nikolevitch Plteff. He was a genuine, old-fashioned landed proprietor, a pious inhabitant of the steppes, sufficiently well educated, according to the standards of that epoch, rather crack-brained, if the truth must be told, and subject, in addition, to epileptic fits. That also is an old-fashioned malady. However, Andri Nikolevitch's attacks were quiet, and they generally terminated in a sleep and in a fit of melancholy. He was kind of heart, courteous in manner, not devoid of some pomposity: I have always pictured to myself the Tzar Mikhal Fedorovitch as just that sort of a man
The cathedral folk by N. S Leskov( Book )

6 editions published between 1924 and 1971 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Priest Savely Tuberozov is a spiritual leader of a small Russian Orthodox community (sobor) in a provincial town of Stargorod. He firmly believes in his spiritual and social mission, and, unwilling to make compromises, comes into conflict with his church seniors, as well as the local authorities. The latter expect him to "eradicate raskol" (schism), and report on dissenters. He refuses to comply and condemns the destruction of the Old Believers' church as barbarism. As the Governor comes to town, Tuberozov makes the speech, accusing the local masters of exploiting peasants and abusing the local rural areas. The Governor doesn't want to listen, and protopope Tuberozov, reprimanded for such an audacity, gets demoted in ranks. He summons the local officials to a moleben and preaches a sermon which sounds more like a political speech, promising dire things to leaders who treat their people as animals. Tuberozov gets fired, goes through numerous humiliations, falls ill and dies

Foma Gordeyev by Maksim Gorky( Book )

11 editions published between 1901 and 2001 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is supposed to present the broad and true picture of the contemporary life, while featuring the figure of an energetic, healthy man, craving for space to realize his power's potential. He feels restricted. Life smothers him. He realizes that there is no place for heroes in it, they apt to being defeated by small things, like Hercules, the conqueror of hydras, crashed by hordes of mosquitoes. Foma is just a sprightly man looking for freedom but feeling thwarted by life's conventions
The Gospel in brief by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gospel in Brief is Leo Tolstoy's integration of the four biblical Gospels into a single account of the life of Jesus. Inspired in large measure by Tolstoy's meticulous study of the original Greek versions of the Bible, The Gospel in Brief is a highly original fusion of biblical texts and Tolstoy's own influential religious views. Tolstoy explains that his goal is a solution to "the problem of life", not an answer to theological or historical questions. As a result, he sets aside such issues as Jesus' genealogy and divinity, or whether Jesus in fact walked on water. Instead, he focuses on the words and teachings of Jesus, stripped of what Tolstoy regarded as the Church's distortions and focus on dogma and ritual. The result is a work that emphasizes the individual's spiritual condition in a chaotic and indifferent world. Like Tolstoy's celebrated literary achievements, The Gospel in Brief has the distinct bearing of a classic: in its urgency and directness it is remarkably current, as if it were written only yesterday rather than a century ago
