Dark Avenues


One of the great achievements of 20th-century Russian emigre literature, "Dark Avenues"--the culmination of a life's work of unrelenting challenge to Soviet dogma--took Bunin's poetic mastery of language, eventually known for its richness as "Bunin brocade," to new heights. Written between 1938 and 1944 and set in the context of the Russian cultural and historical crises of the preceding decades, this collection of short fiction centers around dark, erotic liaisons. Love in its many varied forms is the unifying motif in a rich range of narratives, characterized by the evocative, elegiac, elegant prose for which Bunin is rightly renowned. Hide synopsis
