The white guard by Mikhail|Schwartz, Marian|Dobrenko, Evgeny Bulgakov( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"White Guard, Mikhail Bulgakov's semi-autobiographical first novel, is the story of the Turbin family in Kiev in 1918. Alexei, Elena, and Nikolka Turbin have just lost their mother - their father had died years before - and find themselves plunged into the chaotic civil war that erupted in the Ukraine in the wake of the Russian Revolution. In the context of this family's personal loss and the social turmoil surrounding them, Bulgakov creates a brilliant picture of the existential crises brought about by the revolution and the loss of social, moral, and political certainties. He confronts the reader with the bewildering cruelty that ripped Russian life apart at the beginning of the last century as well as with the extraordinary ways in which the Turbins preserved their humanity. In this volume Marian Schwartz, a leading translator, offers the first complete and accurate translation of the definitive original text of Bulgakov's novel. She includes the famous dream sequence, omitted in previous translations, and beautifully solves the stylistic issues raised by Bulgakov's ornamental prose. Readers with an interest in Russian literature, culture, or history will welcome this superb translation of Bulgakov's important early work. This edition also contains an informative historical essay by Evgeny Dobrenko."--Book description,

Sara Barefield by Marian D Schwartz( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sara has worked her entire life to overcome the name Barefield. To be a Barefield in the rural Virginia county where she grew up means that you are the poorest of the poor, that you are shiftless and untrustworthy, lazy and stupid. Sara has succeeded in proving that she is none of those things. At the age of forty she has a nice apartment, a decent car, and a good job as a school secretary. Tully Rutland, the father of her baby and the only man Sara has ever loved, dies before she tells him that she’s pregnant. The Rutlands have never approved of Sara, and she knows they will do whatever they can to interfere with the raising of the child now that he is gone. She feels that her only choice is to move away so she can make a new life for herself and her baby beyond the reach of the Rutlands. Sara has practically no savings and no one to support her. She knows she will have to go on welfare, but she escaped poverty once and believes she can do it again. As her life becomes increasingly difficult--even when she’s threatened with having to live on the street with the baby--she doesn’t give up. Sara fights her way out of poverty, a journey that leads her to success beyond anything she had dreamed possible."--provided by publisher
Conversations with Joseph Brodsky : a poet's journey through the twentieth century by Solomon Volkov( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brodsky describes his post-Russian life in New York and reveals for the first time his active participation in one of the cold war's most noted cultural confrontations - the famous defection of the Bolshoi Ballet star Alexander Godunov. In this and all his tales recounted here, we meet a Brodsky his readers have not heard before, both contentious and gracious, breaking all the rules, never succumbing to the straitjacketing of literary or political cliques in New York or anywhere else. In these raw Russian conversations, superbly translated by Marian Schwartz, is the journey of a poet-hero around the world and through this century's most troubling and sensational times
