In helping me to understand the stories, I did not feel I was reading a review of a story written by a critic. It’s kind of crazy but that’s the whole game: a) becoming convinced that there is a voice inside you that really, really knows what it likes, and b) getting better at hearing that voice and acting on its behalf. All the same, it’s not an MFA textbook (though highly useful for those who would like to attend or teach in MFA programs), because it’s also intended for a general reader and Saunders skillfully makes his teaching adaptable into the discussion about many aspects in reading this literary form. From the New York Times bestselling, Booker Prize–winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo and Tenth of December comes a literary master class on what makes great stories work and what they can tell us about ourselves—and our world today. But like a novel, it also has some space to breathe, to digress, even if only for a brief moment, to let us mull in the mud of the mundane, in the numbers of the tax man, in the slow time it takes to cut an apple into slices.

For one, it was incredibly interesting to read Saunders' own perspectives on these oft-analysed stories. Though I've enjoyed Saunders' work in the past, I wasn't eager to pick up anyone's hefty analysis of Russian short stories. Pero lo que vino después fue uno de los periodos más sangrientos de la Historia, así que es razonable concluir que no importan las cimas que la creación artística y el pensamiento puedan alcanzar, nunca es suficiente para evitar la barbarie. And the way that Chekhov announces the servant girl’s beauty, without having to describe her at all, is both a comment of Chekhov’s genius and Saunders’s brilliant powers of observation. Perhaps that was my life lesson from this masterclass - to let the things take me where I have to go.I expected a collection of Russian literature stories with some analysis, but instead I received a re-awakening in how to best interpret what I read from now on. En estos días, en los que a pesar de estar tan interconectados gracias a la tecnología es tan fácil sentir que perdemos el vínculo con lo que realmente importa, la lectura ayuda a conectar de nuevo o, al menos, a creer que esa conexión sigue siendo posible. Every chapter articulated a truth a book that, as an avid reader, I had felt before and never knew for sure that anyone else shared. What I appreciated is how Turgenev showed that the passion for vocal art is universal and that these two schools of thought about vocalism can be instinctively felt by anyone, including the impoverished peasants in the remote and isolated lands. Leer mil veces, cuestionando cada decisión —un giro de la trama, una característica de un personaje, la mera elección de una palabra— y cambiándola por otra mejor que es, en definitiva, la que como escritor te guste más.

From the New York Times- bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo and Tenth of December comes a literary master class on what makes great stories work and what they can tell us about ourselves - and our world today. I thought the story was dull unless you are interested in the anthropology and the ways of the entertainment between the Russian lower classes circa mid 19th century. I tried to move into a nearby dorm but they were oddly unreceptive to this and I had to leave before the police arrived.
