Parallel Texts

This is a parallel-text edition of 'Bronka,' a short story by Ludmila Ulitskaya, one of contemporary Russia's most popular and internationally acclaimed authors. First published in 1989, the story depicts the childhood and youth of Bronka, the eponymous heroine, who lives with her mother in a drab communal apartment in a rundown Moscow neighborhood in the years following the Second World War. To make ends meet, Bronka's mother works as a cleaning woman from morning till night, while her teenage daughter is left to fend for herself. Faced with crowded living quarters, boorish neighbors, and the bleak realities of post-war urban life in Moscow, Bronka takes an unconventional path to find emotional connection, and ultimately love and fulfillment. 'Bronka' is an extraordinary tale, written in elegant prose, and its depiction of everyday life makes this an excellent literary text for students of Russian language, literature, and culture.

Ignatova?s verse is highly concentrated?rich with aromas and colors and the sometimes bitter hint of what is left unsaid. Particular words or motifs gain intensity as they repeat through varied contexts. Her verse is classical, with effective but traditional versification and frequent shades of Akhmatova, Tsvetaeva, Mandelstam and of course Pushkin. Ignatova?s work is also unmistakably contemporary in its stylistic range, marked not only by current events but by the dissident angst, subversive linguistic play and conversational ease of the late Soviet period. She combines both Russian Orthodox and Biblical spiritual sensibility by setting her poems amid the famous beauties and chimeras of St. Petersburg, places where she has visited or has family ties (Crimea and Smolensk), and the new, ancient environs of Jerusalem, described as crystalline and distinct from St. Petersburg?s granite.
