Description


A new translation of the hilarious picaresque about a man with an indomitable spirit
 
The Enchanted Wanderer is a Russian Candide with a revolutionary edge, a picaresque that features a fast-talking monk named Ivan who is at war, it seems, with every level of society. Working as a carriage man for a Count, Ivan accidentally causes the death of a monk, which leads to his being ostracized by the local peasantry . . . until the dead monk returns as a ghost to guide him through trouble upon trouble.

About the Author


Nikolai Leskov (1831-1895) was one of Russia's greatest writers. Anton Chekhov considered him his "teacher," and Tolstoy hailed his courageous, anti-nihilist writing. Among his best-known works is "Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk."

Ian Dreiblatt translated Leo Tolstoy's "Death of Ivan Ilych" for the Art of the Novella series.
