Description
Peter Carson, the eminent British publisher, editor and translator, must have seen the irony of translating Ilyich, Tolstoy's profound meditation on death and loss, before he succumbed to cancer in 2013. In shimmering prose, these transcendent works are presented in their most faithful rendering in English. Unlike many previous translations that have tried to smooth out Tolstoy's rough edges, Carson presents a translation that captures the verisimilitude and psychological realism of the original Russian text.
