Written in 1850, The Diary of a Superfluous Man is Turgenev's novella in the form of the diary of a dying man.

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.

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

11 editions published between 1904 and 2005 in English and held by 364 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 Gospel in brief by Leo Tolstoy( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 244 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
