Leskov in Russian and English, story by story

October 28, 2014

It was starting to bother me that it was fairly easy to find titles of books of translations of Leskov, but hard to know what was included in the “and other stories.” So here’s a list of Leskov’s fiction, following Hugh McLean’s list in Nikolai Leskov: The Man and His Art, with translations into English and alternate titles listed under each work. English titles not attributed to someone else are from McLean’s list. The list is arranged chronologically by publication date. It should be easy to navigate through it by pressing ctrl+F and entering an English or Russian title. Corrections/additions welcome. [Update 3/16/15: bibliographic details of English translations and links to WorldCat added at end of post.]
