VINTAGE Classics Russian Series
Six essential Russian masterpieces, in striking covers to cherish and collect.
Published for the 100th anniversary of the 1917 Russian Revolution, this collection sees must-have, beautifully designed editions of six epic masterpieces: Anna Karenina, Crime and Punishment, Dr Zhivago, Life and Fate, The Master and Margarita, and War and Peace.
The intricate cover patterns take inspiration from flower embroideries on traditional Russian dresses and geometric designs of Soviet Russia. These are rich and exquisite novels that have survived controversy, censorship and suppression to influence decades of thought and artistic expression.
Featuring six Russian masterpieces:
Anna Karenina is Tolstoy's epic novel of love, destiny and self-destruction.
A broad portrait of an age and a searing vision of Stalinist Russia, Life and Fate is also the story of a family.
In Crime and Punishment, Raskolnikov, consumed by the idea of his own special destiny, is drawn to commit a terrible crime. In the aftermath, he is dogged by madness, guilt and a calculating detective, and a feverish cat-and-mouse game unfolds.
Banned in the Soviet Union until 1988, Doctor Zhivago is the epic story of the life and loves of a poet-physician during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution.
Bulgakov paints a powerful picture of Stalin’s regime in the allegorical classic, The Master and Margarita.
In War and Peace, Tolstoy conjures a broad panorama of rich, messy, beautiful and debased human life.
