Product Description

Review

'Pearl's approach is more adventurous than that of his predecessors. His text flows naturally, capturing Goncharov's carefully modulated tone, the gentleness of his humour, and the colloquial flavour of his dialogue… Stephen Pearl has indeed caught the very essence of Oblomov.' --Times Literary Supplement

About the Author

Ivan Goncharov (1812 - 91) was a Russian official, novelist, critic and travel writer, who is best remembered for his masterpiece Oblomov.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Boris Dralyuk, reviewing this in the TLS, praises the translator for his success in capturing "Goncharov’s carefully modulated tone and the gentleness of his humour,". Dralyuk goes on to quote a sentence from the translation that beautifully exemplifies this:
"Sometimes an expression of something like weariness or boredom would darken his brow; but neither the weariness nor the boredom could for a minute erase the mildness, which was not merely the dominant expression of his face, but the very essence of his whole being – an essence that glowed naked and clear in his eyes, in his smile, in the least movement of his head or his hand."
As Dralyuk says, "Stephen Pearl has indeed caught the very essence of Oblomov."
