Translations from Russian

I spent near three years studying Russian in college, and three weeks in Russia July 2009. A couple things I translated for intellectual entertainment:

  • Before going to Russia and while there I read Maxim Gorki’s Twenty-six Men and a Girl, and translated the story after returning, at this link.
  • Something of an exercise in two languages.Another short story I translated from Russian, Mikhail Zoshchenko’s ultra-short story Nervous People, at this link.

 Mikhail Zoshchenkos Nervous People, sitting on my Smirnitski Russian-English dictionary. It is a short, short story. But has punch.
