From Pushkin to Tolstoy
An Advanced Russian Reader
From Pushkin to Tolstoy was first published in 1944. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
These selections, showing a wide variety of style, will acquaint advanced students of the Russian language with characteristics of the language used by some of the leading representatives of nineteenth-century Russian literature. All of these selections are either complete or can be understood or identified easily. Because the editor believes the student of Russian should try to become accustomed to the Russian accentuation and the use of larger dictionaries, word accents and a special glossary have not been given.
