Books in the ‘Rereading the Classics’ series give a modern analysis of the works that form part of school literature curricula. This is the first attempt to provide a detailed insight into the spiritual, moral and religious aspects of the art of 19th and 20th century Russian writers. The series is offered as the basis of modern knowledge about Russian literature, which is necessary for high school students to pass school-leaving examinations and to gain admission to any institution of higher learning. The book analyzes universal spiritual, moral, ethical, and aesthetic values of Russian peasantry in the works of F.A. Abramov, V.I. Belov, V.M. Shukshin, V.G. Rasputin, as well as their immediate predecessors, such as E.I. Zamyatin and A.P. Platonov. A special chapter is devoted to the origins of our country's ‘rural’ prose of our century in Russian classical literature, from N.M. Karamzin, A.S. Pushkin, D.V. Grigorovich and I.S. Turgenev to L.N. Tolstoy, F.M. Dostoevsky, G.I. Uspensky and A.P. Chekhov.
