Russian folk tales have a timeless, slightly unworldly quality that children, and those who read to them, find particularly appealing. This is Fontanka's second book of folk tales with illustrations by the artist Elena Polenova, with stories that are possibly even more beguiling than those in Why the Bear. The same team that produced the first book is responsible for Sinko-Filipko too: the translator Dr Louise Hardiman, the granddaughter of the artist, Natalia Polenova, and the designer Christoph Stolberg. The book is designed to be a companion to the first, with the same quarter binding, and individually coloured chapters подробнее

As Ivan Ilyich lies dying he begins to re-evaluate his life, searching for meaning that will make sense of his sufferings. In 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' and the other works in this volume, Tolstoy conjures characters who, tested to the limit, reveal glorious and unexpected reserves of courage or baseness of a near inhuman kind. Two vivid parables and 'The Forged Coupon', a tale of criminality, explore class relations after the emancipation of the serfs in 1861 and the connection between an ethical life and worldly issues. In 'Master and Workman' Tolstoy creates one of his most gripping dramas about human relationships put to the test in an extreme situation.
