The beleaguered city : the Vicksburg Campaign, December 1862-July 1863 by Shelby Foote ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Follows the course of Grant's siege of the port of Vicksburg, Mississippi, discusses the strategies of both sides, and assesses the performance and personal objectives of officers from both the Union and Confederate armies. The companion volume to Stars in Their Courses, this marvelous account of Grant's siege of the Mississippi port of Vicksburg continues Foote's narrative of the great battles of the Civil War--culled from his massive three-volume history-recounting a campaign which Lincoln called one of the most brilliant in the world. Shelby Foote has drawn from his epic account another of the Civil War's most dramatic episodes, the taking of the city of Vicksburg by the Union forces. Ulysses S. Grant fought a long campaign over tricky terrain to get to the heavily fortified city. All the while, he had to fend off his colleague and rival General John McClernand, who decided that his aspirations to Lincoln's White House could best be realized by his possession of Vicksburg. When the city fell on July 4, 1863, after a protracted siege, it was a personal triumph for Grant and contributed largely to his later promotion to command of all the Union armies. Lincoln said that his general's campaign to reach Vicksburg had been one of the most brilliant in the world
Anton Chekhov : later short stories, 1888-1903 by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
2 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume presents forty-two of Chekhov's later short stories, written between 1888 and 1903, in acclaimed translations by Constance Garnett and chosen by Shelby Foote. Among the most outstanding are "A Dreary Story," a dispassionate tale that reflects Chekhov's doubts about his role as an artist. Thomas Mann deemed it "a truly extraordinary, fascinating story ... unlike anything else in world literature." "The Darling," a delightful work highly admired by Tolstoy, offers comic proof that life has no meaning without love. And in "The lady with the Dog," which Vladimir Nabokov called "one of the greatest stories ever written," a chance affair takes possession of a bored young woman and a cynical roue, changing their lives forever."--BOOK JACKET
Anton Chekhov : early short stories, 1883-1888 by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection, selected by Shelby Foote, presents seventy of Chekhov's early short stories, written between 1883 and 1888, in celebrated translations by Constance Garnett. One of the most memorable is "The Death of a Government Clerk," a glorious parody in which a fawning official is undone by an ill-timed sneeze. "On the Road," the history of an educated man's search for convictions, is one of Chekhov's finest dramatic stories and the source of his first full-length play, Ivanov. And in "The Steppe," which marked a turning point in Chekhov's career, a boy's picaresque journey across the Russian heartland evokes the soul of Russia itself."--BOOK JACKET

Longer stories from the last decade by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov ( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Some six hundred tales bear Chekhov's name, not a few of which are the famous "long short stories" written during roughly the last decade of his brief life. This volume gives us eleven of these, in eminent translations by Constance Garnett and chosen by Shelby Foote. Perhaps the most autobiographical is "Three Years," which offers a portrayal of mercantile greed and exploitation that was new to Russian literature. "The Duel" is the story of Ivan Layevsky, a self-styled "St. Petersburg Hamlet," who, filled with Tolstoyan ideas of a noble life of toil on the land, escapes (with another man's wife) to the Caucasus. The ensuing philosophical confrontations among the major characters clearly resemble those in Uncle Vanya. And in the masterly "Ward No. 6," a doctor disgusted by the stupidity and misery of the world of normal men, forms such a close relationship with an interesting lunatic that society declares the doctor a lunatic too and incarcerates him. The story is devastatingly symbolic of the corruption and hopelessness in Russia toward the end of the autocracy."--BOOK JACKET
