The Heart of a Russian

£14.99

Product description

"This novel, known as one of the masterpieces of Russian Literature, under the title 'A Hero of Our Time', is now for the first time placed before the general English reader. The work is of exceptional interest to the student of English Literature, written as it was under the profound influence of Byron and being itself a study of the Byronic type of character. The translators have taken special care to preserve both the atmosphere of the story and the poetic beauty with which the Poet-novelist imbued his pages". This is a first edition of this translation and shows signs of its age. The red board cover is bumped along its edges and on the corners, and the spine is faded. However, the titling is clear. There is a pencil signature on the front free end-paper and there is a little foxing and some yellowing to all pages. The text is clear and sharp.
