    1. Aleksandr Ivanovich Kuprin

      Aleksandr Ivanovich Kuprin Russian 7 September 1870 in the village of Narovchat in the Penza Oblast August 25, 1938 in Leningrad was a Russian writer, pilot, explorer and adventurer who is perhaps best known for his story The Duel 1905 Other well known works include Moloch 1896 , Olesya 1898 , Junior Captain Rybnikov 1906 , Emerald 1907 , and The Garnet Bracelet 1911 which was made into a 1965 movie Vladimir Nabokov styled him the Russian Kipling for his stories about pathetic adventure seekers, who are often neurotic and vulnerable Kuprin was a son of Ivan Ivanovich Kuprin, a minor government official who died of cholera during 1871 at the age of thirty seven years His mother, Liubov Alekseevna Kuprina, Tatar princess of the Kulunchakovs , like many other nobles in Russia, had lost most of her wealth during the 19th century Kuprin attended the Razumovsky boarding school during 1876, and during 1880 finished his education in the Second Moscow Military High School Cadet Corps and Alexander Military School, spending a total of ten years in these elite military institutions His first short story, The Last Debut, was published during 1889 in a satirical periodical In February 1902, Kuprin and Maria Karlovna Davydova were married, their daughter Lidia born in 1903 Kuprin s mother died during 1910.Kuprin ended military service during 1894, after which he tried many types of job, including provincial journalism, dental care, land surveying, acting, circus performer, church singer, doctor, hunter, fisher, etc Reportedly, all of these were subsequently reflected in his fiction His first essays were published in Kiev in two collections Reportedly, although he lived in an age when writers were carried away by literary experiments, Kuprin did not seek innovation and wrote only about the things he himself had experienced and his heroes are the next generation after Chekhov s pessimists Although the 1896 short story Moloch first made his name known as a writer, it was his novel The Duel 1905 which made him famous Kuprin was highly praised by fellow writers including Anton Chekhov, Maxim Gorky, Leonid Andreyev, Nobel Prize winning Ivan Bunin and Leo Tolstoy who acclaimed him a true successor to Chekhov After publication of The Duel he paid less and less interest to fancy literature and began to spend time in pubs and brothels His sensationalist novel about the lurid life of prostitutes, The Pit 1915 , was accused by Russian critics of excessive Naturalism.Although not a conservative, he did not agree with Bolshevism While working for a brief time with Maxim Gorky at the World Literature publishing company, he criticized the Soviet regime During spring 1919, from Gatchina near Petrograd, Kuprin left the country for France He lived in Paris for most of the next 17 years, succumbing to alcoholism He wrote about this in much of his work He eventually returned to Moscow on May 31, 1937, just a year before his death, at the height of the Great Purge His return earned publication of his works within the Soviet Union.Kuprin died during the spring of 1938 in Leningrad and is interred near his fellow writers at the Literaturskiye Mostki in the Volkovo Cemetery Volkovskoye Memorial Cemetery in Leningrad A minor planet 3618 Kuprin, discovered by Soviet astronomer Nikolai Stepanovich Chernykh in 1979 is named after him.Reportedly, even today, Alexander Kuprin remains one of the widest read classics in Russian literature , with many films based on his works, which are also read over the radio , partly due to his vivid stories of the lives of ordinary people and unhappy love, his descriptions of the military and brothels, making him a writer for all times and places.

    1. Forgot to bring a book today when I had a very long wait in-between tasks in the morning and afternoon. So on to the library and went and picked up this title, apt for the occasion considering my outrage about my forgetting to bring a book, and delighted myself with this story, mainly a long soliloquy of a leader of thieves complaining about being implicated with some pogroms done against Jews in old Russia. A self-confessed leader of criminals extolling the virtues of their profession, painting [...]


    2. This was a tough read for me, taking me several weeks to read as I would easily put it down and ended up making myself read something from it every day to complete it. It's not that I didn't receive any enjoyment from the story but rather that I couldn't connect with it on any level. For the most part it is the story of a young love-sick soldier in the Russian Tsarist Army. He visits and pines for a married woman who strings him along and his overdramatic moonings and swoonings are so over the t [...]


    3. After reading this, I have a clear understanding of why the Tsarist army would looked at Communism and said: "That sounds great!"


    4. extra copy; if someone in the US wants it, it's yours. Free. I pay postage. (Melville House Art of the Novella series).


    5. Una nota prima di cominciare. Ho provato a non spoilerare troppo o a nascondere le parti più dettagliate, ma ho sicuramente fallito e devo avvisare chiunque abbia intenzione di leggerle il romanzo che qui sotto potrebbero esserci spoiler in vista.Forse il nome di Kuprin non dirà molto, è uno dei tanti autori stranieri di cui si sente parlare quasi per caso e di cui si scoprono traduzioni qua e là non sempre facili da trovare perché non più in stampa (dommage). Non starò qui a riportare vi [...]

    7. Young Werther in the Russian army. A lot of romantic olfactory activity, senseless army training every other chapter, iconically, and love in a traditional dichotomy: dirty vs. lofty.Two stars go to the language.


    8. Against a backdrop of sadistic, rotten and unnatural atmosphere of Russian army, Kuprin powerfully describes a conflict between naive, cowardly officer and his immoral, corrupt surroundings.


    9. Когда армия не исполняет прямых обязанностей, она подвергается разложению. При Александре III Российская империя не воевала, как и в первые годы царствования Николая II. Поэтому нет ничего удивительного в том, что Александр Куприн описывает в негативных оттенках будни солда [...]


    10. I spent 7/8 of this book feeling that there was no initial momentum, no development and no direction. I was moderately interested by the vivid (if repetitive) descriptions of life in the military backwater the characters inhabit. But the, as the Melville House blurb states, the developments close to the end are "startling." The final head-long rush to resolution is worth - just barely - the investment of reader attention that leads to it. One thing about the MHP edition, the inconsistency and sl [...]


    11. Sneaky move by Melville House to include this in their "Art of the Novella" series. At 300+ pages, I'd hardly consider this "shorter than a novel." Still, I'm super pleased they did. This novel's a snapshot of an era in Czarist Russia. Published in 1905, and not translated until 1916, this work has many lines which serve as ironic and foretelling precursors to the two World Wars that lay in the nation's wait. I'll be returning to this one frequently for an in-depth review, but what Kuprin accomp [...]


    12. Well, it was good in the sense that it was fine literature. But I'm more in the mood for swashbuckling, and this wasn't it. I don't necessarily want to reduce the great Russian literary heritage to some minor points, but I will in order to explain how I saw this book. The familiar thematic formula: A somewhat sorry example of a man feeling desperately sorry for himself + Lazing around on a dirty sofa/bed + Alcohol + Greasiness + Stagnated aristocratic/military society, = Generic Russian novel.Fo [...]


    13. Петербургский русский никогда не употребляет слово: "завтрак", а всегда говорит "фрыштик", особенно напирая на звук фры.
