Dead Souls - Nikolai Gogol, Larissa Volokhonsky, Richard Pevear

enjoyable, causes a lot of smirks, I love some of the (translated) passages and paragraphs that pull back from the humor and embrace a larger perspective about life, people, what is transitory but important, the difference between speculating and judging--but I am already looking beyond what Russian Lit offers. this has been an eye-opener, and I'm glad to experience it, but the aims of 19th Century Russian writing will only be visited by me every now and then.
