On the Edge of the World

by Nikolai Leskov
Translated from the Russian with notes by Michael Prokurat
Illustrated Tatiana Misijuk

“Nikolai S. Leskov (1831-1895) wrote and rewrote On the Edge of the World until it took its present, final shape in late 1875 and 1876. Neither the novel nor the author won critical acclaim, although a wide readership liked both. [...]On the Edge of the World[...]was somewhat dangerous. It criticized the church using the church’s own theology, and challenged views of the government and religion which were widespread in Europe. [...]Leskov chose the travelogue, as in this novel, to be one of his favorite genres. In the travelogue or travel diary, as in other of his journalistic modes, the contents were usually half fact and half fiction, though this remained indiscernible to the reader.”
