Fedor Sologub (1863-1927) was a mystic, a realist and a writer of novels and outstanding short stories in the Dostoyevsky school. "The Hoop" is very representative of his evocative work. It tells the story of an old man who is captivated by the sight of a young child playing with a hoop. The image embeds itself in his psyche and from it, right at the end of his life, he finally learns how to live in the moment.
"A life, like childhood."
Fedor Sologub (1863-1927) was a Russian mystic and realist and one of the great novelists and short story writers of the Dostoyevsky school. A favourite theme of his was reincarnation, which he uses very powerfully in his story "A Soothing Dream", which describes the last weeks of a dying boy's life.
Fedor Sologub (1863-1927) was the greatest of the Russian symbolists. Alongside his great novel The Little Demon, he wrote a number of masterful and haunting short stories, among which "The White Dog" is a superb example of his beautiful, poetic, and mystic prose.
