Although much less familiar to foreign readers than the great realistic novels of Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, the short story occupies a central place in modern Russian literature. We study the development of the short story in 19th-century Russia through close readings of masterpieces of the genre by Pushkin, Gogol, Lermontov, Odoevsky, Dostoevsky, Turgenev, and Tolstoy.
