Oblomov is the second novel of Ivan Goncharov, and is presented here complete in its original Russian. Published in 1859 at a time when Russia was becoming more sceptical of the abilities of its ruling classes, Oblomov is a staunch satire of the nobility and their inadequacies. The titular main character is fraught with inertia, being incapable of doing anything or going anywhere: indeed, the first fifty pages of the book only see him traverse from his bed to his bedroom chair. Renowned for questioning the nature of Russian nationality and personality, Oblomov has a unique place in Russian literature and remains studied by scholars within and outside the country. At first the novel appears to be narrated neutrally - however, as Oblomov's character and incapacity to act become clear, the narrator increasingly judges and criticises characters such as members of Oblomov's wider family for their overprotective tendencies. This edition of the text is complete and unabridged, with the original Russian preserved identically to the original publication.

Cities are constructed and organized by people, and in turn become an important factor in the organization of human life. They are sites of both social encounter and social division and provide for their inhabitants “a sense of place”. This book explores the nature of Russian cities, outlining the role played by various Russian cities over time. It focuses on a range of cities including provincial cities, considering both physical, iconic, created cities, and also cities as represented in films, fiction and other writing.

We all know we believe or want to believe in fairy tales. We are all ready to answer Peter Pan’s monumental question whether we believe in fairy tales with a resounding “yes!” We all know that fairy tales are tied to real life experiences more than we pretend they aren’t. We ward off fairy tales and pretend that they are intended mainly for children because they tell more truth than we want to know, and we absorb fairy tales because they tell us more truth than we want to know. They are filled with desire and optimism. They drip with brutality, bluntness, violence, and perversity. They expose untruth, and the best are bare, brusque, and concise. They stamp our minds and perhaps our souls. They form another world, a counter world, in which social justice is more readily attained than in our actual world where hypocrisy, corruption, hyping, exploitation, and competition determine the outcome of social and political interactions and the quality of social relations. ______ RUSSIA: У старика была дочь-красавица, жил он с нею тихо и мирно, пока не женился на другой бабе, а та баба была злая ведьма… (читать далее только детям)

The story follows the exploits of Chichikov, a middle-aged gentleman of middling social class and means. Chichikov arrives in a small town and turns on the charm to woo key local officials and landowners. He reveals little about his past, or his purpose, as he sets about carrying out his bizarre and mysterious plan to acquire "dead souls." Книга рассказывает о похождениях Чичикова Павла Ивановича, главного героя поэмы, бывшего коллежского советника, выдающего себя за помещика. Чичиков приезжает в неназванный городок, некий губернский «город N» и немедленно пытается войти в доверие ко всем сколько-либо важным обитателям города, что ему успешно удаётся. Герой становится крайне желанным гостем на балах и обедах. Горожане неназванного города не догадываются об истинных целях Чичикова. А цель его заключается в скупке или безвозмездном приобретении умерших крестьян, которые по переписи ещё числились как живые у местных помещиков, и последующем оформлении их на своё имя как живых.

A mysterious man, Griffin, arrives at the local inn of the English village of Iping, West Sussex, during a snowstorm. The stranger wears a long-sleeved, thick coat and gloves; his face is hidden entirely by bandages except for a fake pink nose; and he wears a wide-brimmed hat. He is excessively reclusive, irascible, and unfriendly. He demands to be left alone and spends most of his time in his rooms working with a set of chemicals and laboratory apparatus, only venturing out at night. While Griffin is staying at the inn, hundreds of strange glass bottles (that he calls his luggage) arrive. Many local townspeople believe this to be very strange. He becomes the talk of the village with many theorizing as to his origins. В романе описываются увлекательные приключения главного героя - безумного и гениального молодого физика, наивно возмечтавшего о высшей власти над миром, но затравленного и раздавленного обществом. Но это лишь обрамление для основной мысли Уэллса - мысли о глубокой ответственности ученого за свои открытия, способные принести миру как блага, так и бесчисленные беды.
