    No one plumbs deeper depths of the psyche than French and Russian authors. This wide-ranging collection of 19th-century literary masterworks, presented in their entirety, not only entertains, but provides insight into 19th-century mores and the mysteries of human nature.

    Overall

    before getting this book...

    Indeed, the readers butcher the Russian names - something dreadful. I understand that it is impossible for an American to roll "R"s or pronounce a hard "L". But it behooves a reader to find out where to place an accent.
    Mari'a Gavrilo'vna really grates on the ears of anybody even slightly familiar with Russian language. Oh yes, it should be Ma'ria Gavri'lovna.
