Description

Algunos de los relatos son extraordinarios pese a sus defectos (hablando desde un punto de vista académico); otros los son precisamente por sus defectos.

The book includes seven Russian short stories (3 from Chekhov, 2 from Tolstoy, 1 from Gogol, and 1 from Turgenev). Una gran historia cumple con las expectativas creadas, pero nunca de la manera más directa y previsible; eso defraudaría al lector.After each, he steps us through how he reads them and how to feel them (not what to feel but what to think about), figure out what the authors are doing, what they might have done differently, and why the stories work just as they are. But the value of what he does here is makes the reader think what words have been chosen that carry the reader forward? The title essay, “A Swim in a Pond in the Rain” is a study of Anton Chekhov’s transcendent story, “Gooseberries. All this is well and good, but as Saunders astutely points out in “A Swim in a Pond in the Rain,” Ivan is an unreliable narrator. Also what seeming digressions can add to the story--sometimes the digression is where the story really is.

He also appeals to his friends to do good and acknowledges that he is not able of doing it properly which keeps him awake at night. Saunders continues through the stories, vacillating from a literary-analysis viewpoint of ‘what could this mean. Perhaps it’s less like applying a series of lessons and more like the training of an intuition that flashes between hand, eye, mind.

También dice mucho sobre el libro y sobre lo lejos que está de un manual académico: es, como las clases, una conversación entre un escritor experimentado y aquellos que empiezan acerca de cómo “ofrecer valor al mundo.
