    1. Eski hikaye anlatıcılığı ile büyülü anlatımın güzel bir örneği ve gariptir ki iyiler hep kazanıyor :))


    2. Nikolai Leskov is apparently an author of substantial influence, being cited by such eminent writers as Tolstoy, Chekhov, Bulgakov, and Gorky. Yet despite this, he is not so well known in the West. I confess I've never heard of him until I saw the new Pevear/Volokhonsky edition in the book store a few weeks ago.Leskov, in these short stories, is an honest and forthright author who is most interested in telling the stories and also the characterization of 'upright men', as described in his epilog [...]


    3. I'm not sure how I came across this writer but I'm glad I did. This book is a collection of six engaging short stories. The titular story, The Enchanted Wanderer, is the longest and the most entertaining. It reminded me somewhat of Voltaire's Candide, but a tamed down version.This book was different from other Russian novels I've read because instead of focusing on the aristocracy, the stories focus on the working class. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys Russian literature.


    4. 4,5Foi um desafio atribuir as estrelas a este livro! Estive dois dias a digerir e ponderar sobre ele antes de conseguir dizer o que quer que fosse de mais ou menos estável. Um livro que me faz deter e ponderar dois dias merece que penda para as 5 estrelas.Narrativamente é soberbo. Tem uma estrutura, cadência, e encadeado próximo daquilo que se conhecia como o contar de uma história, tão próprio da oralidade e muito raro hoje. Aquilo que poderá ser entendido como a ideia subentendida do a [...]

    6. Nikolai Leskov was a unique writer, he was one of the grandest connoisseurs and maestros of language and it’s a great pity that his magnanimous and juicy handling of words was unavoidably lost in translation.But all the same The Enchanted Wanderer is an enchanting reading. The tale possesses almost proverbial qualities.“Kneel, first of all. Man’s knees are the first instrument: as soon as you kneel, your soul at once soars up, and there, being thus elevated, you must bow down to the ground [...]


    7. 'segundo Gorki, Leskov é o escritor () mais profundamente enraizado no povo e o mais inteiramente livre de influências estrangeiras.' afirmação que consta no prefácio e que me faz todo o sentido depois de terminar esta leitura. recheado de peripécias, rude, brutal e, ao mesmo tempo, irónico, o Peregrino Encantado de Leskov oferece-nos um retrato delicioso sobre hábitos e superstições dos diferentes povos que habitavam a Rússia do século XIX, que em muito ajuda a conhecer melhor e ent [...]

    9. A strange tale this, emblematic of nineteenth century Russia's multiethnic expanse yet somehow rooted in that country's particular brand of Christianity and sense of fate. A monk tells the story of his adventures with reasonable cheer, considering that he is at various times enslaved, hobbled, humiliated and guilty of murder. This is not the picaresque tale of the hero journeying through danger and outwitting it repeatedly; Nikolai Leskov may have claimed that his wanderer was enchanted, but wit [...]


    10. الجواب المسحور كلنا مفتونون بالأدب الروسي، قراءة رواية روسية هي وسيلتنا في الحصول على مزاج رائق، وهذا غريب !! فالأدب الروسي ممتلئ بالشقاء، بالمعذبين، بالبؤساء الذين يقف في وجوههم كل شيء، القدر والناس والطبيعة القاسية. وهذه الرواية أبرز ما يعبر عن الأدب الروسي في مأساويته، ف [...]

    12. Couldn't find it here, but I read the most recent Knopf iteration of this collection-- the big several hundred page fucker. I hadn't read Leskov before, and felt I might as well dive right in.Years ago, I read the Walter Benjamin essay about Leskov, which piqued my interest. And, as you might expect with a volume this thick, with stories ranging from all points in the man's career, the stories ranged from the lovely to the meh. The underlying theme throughout is that Russia is not quite Europe. [...]



    13. How wonderful to see a book marketed on the strength of the translation - "A Pevear and Volokhonsky translation" reads the blurb at the very top of the front cover, albeit in smaller print than the author/title, and the dust jacket on the inside rear contains not details of the author but rather a picture and bio of the translators.The husband and wife team of Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have managed, via their wide-ranging versions of Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, Tolstoy, Gogol - and now of [...]


    14. The works of Nikolai Leskov are diminutive not just in length, but it seems to also appear on the onset less in contextual form in comparison to the somewhat light seeking, of highfalutin divine derivation known to the great Russian writers of the 19th century. In its briefly short and concise form elucidated by his simple straightforward narrative are stories that most often than not hide the true nature of his literary intention as it can abruptly pass by a reader′s mind leaving without much [...]


    15. Another magnificent 19th century Russian writer, Leskov's collection The Enchanted Wanderer is out in a new translation, and it's a great reading experience. In some ways it's like nothing I've read before. His characters are so vivid, such striking people from a world as real as real and as foreign as foreign. There's a certain toughness, a kind of noir or hard-boiled sense in his stories, which feature ordinary people, serfs and soldiers, often runaways and others on a hard path in life, peopl [...]


    16. 'Picaresque' often suggests the lead is roguish but good-hearted - not so here, where Ivan Severyanych is basically a thug, the sort of person with a string of serious crimes to his name who still makes out he's somehow the victim. It's often hard to be sure past a certain distance in time and space, but I suspect his deadpan account of his travels and travails, and in particular their sheer scope, was intended as a blackly humorous satire on the brutality, bureaucracy and hypocrisy of 19th cent [...]


    17. I have finally finished these wonderful tales by Nikolai Leskov. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky present a highly readable translation of these tales from a classic Russian writer, who is often overlooked. Each of Leskov's tales are different, but each are told as if they are historical incidents. I'm sure there is a real story behind most of them but I'm certain they are the result of extensive artistic license. Some of the stories are obviously funny, while the comedy is more subtle in [...]

    19. A very old hardcover I found in my sister's collection. I had my doubts about reading this, but I absolutely had nothing else left in home, so I started it anyway. It is a collection of five short stories. I loved the first one, Lady Macbeth of Mtensk. I thought the second, The Enchanted Wanderer was peculiar, in every way and the longest. The other three stories were soothing.


    20. The Peaver translation is absolutely shocking - so clunky and inept it was literally impossible to suck it up and trudge onwards. Hey ho, life is too short but sadly my Russian odyssey grinds to a halt again. Inconsistent translations are a woeful plague on 19th Century Russian literature. Quite why Russian seems to suffer more problems than the romance languages I am too unenlightened to decipher


    21. You may read online here.Opening lines:We sailed across Lake Ladoga from Konevets Island to Valaam, stopping by Korela Harbor for maintenance. A wanderlust washed over the ship, and we rode some little Finnish horses into the desolate village and back. It was not long before the captain had !nished his business, and we set off again.4* Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk2* The Enchanted Wanderer


    22. I found this new hardback edition for $5 in a remainder bookstore. I read the Introduction and two of the stories. Very dark and depressing. The style is factual and dry.I did not continue.


    23. Интересная книга с точки зрения того, как думалось человеку раньше, старые взгляды, честные суждения, но достаточно очень устаревшие принципы, тем не менее мне понравилось так как стиль сказания самого Лескова очень мягкий и душевный и многое чего из истории народа русско [...]


    24. They are not the best of stories. They are not the worst of stories. Each one is filled with simplicity, humanity, and a kind of storytelling that is no longer in fashion. There is a lot of telling instead of showing what is happening as if each story contains a core so precious that it cannot be left to the reader’s imagination to figure it out. They are what stories used to be like: characters doing interesting things, writers not relying on pompous words and tedious literary descriptions.


    25. I must admit that I hadn't heard about Nikolai Leskov before. This book showed-up in my recommendations of GoodReads. I am glad it did! It has been one amazing read of stories about rural live in Russia, christianity, mercants and nobility, growing up, mystic. Some made me laugh, others (almost) cry, think about live. All are written splendidly and vividly let the reader see what live was in that time, how the people from the lowest bragger to saints and princes thought and behaved.I read the Eb [...]


    26. ‘El peregrino encantado’ de Nikolái Leskov es una novela totalmente rusa. Y cuando digo que es “una novela totalmente rusa” ni siquiera yo misma sabría explicar por qué, pero es así. Es una novela de aventuras y de humor, una novela costumbrista y picaresca, y en todos estos aspectos es de lo más rusa. Seria como un ‘Tristram Shandy’, pero en ruso, y en bueno. Tiene también esa religiosidad rusa, algo laica y supersticiosa, que a mí siempre me ha fascinado, con apariciones de [...]


    27. This month I received two books of Russian literature and decided to start with this one as compared to the other novellas I've been reading it is a veritable tome at 210 pages. Which I guess is appropriate for a novella of Russian Lit when you think of the average length of a Russian novel. LOL I haven't read any classic Russian works unless you count Doctor Zhivago and modern 20th century authors, but I have read many short stories such as Tolstoy and Chekhov. This was an entirely new piece to [...]


    28. I am finally able to close 2014's chapter of in-depth reading of Russian literature with the conclusion of this collection of tales by Nikolai Leskov. He is not a name that I knew before starting out like Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky, but he is just as important and if not more in the way that he pulls back the curtain of what is truly the majority of Russia. There are stories in this collection of landowners, soldiers and aristocrats like most of Russian literature, but there are also heartbreaking t [...]
