    Punchy, taut, brisk, abrupt, grotesque, surprisingly subtle and rather laconic To have ridden in the Red Calvary alone, as an Odessan Jew, was definitely an act of tremendous guts to write about it effectively afterward is evenimpressive, of course.His short story Guy De Maupassant is perfect.He was snuffed out far too early and was tragically intended to be forgotten by the Stalinist state but his prose sears and burns off the page as if even his sentences themselves are fighting to s Punchy, taut, brisk, abrupt, grotesque, surprisingly subtle and rather laco...

    There s a lot to be said for the work of Isaac Babel Not only did he write at a time when great political forces were at work, and not only did he get a chance to participate directly in one of the greatest of these forces, the Red Army, but Babel s prose style, which combines coolly analytical description with just a touch of the surreal especially when it comes to the violence of the Russian Revolution fit his times e...

    The stories are divided into four groups Early Stories, Autobiographical Stories, Red Cavalry , and Odessa Stories The stories, sometimeslike sketches, in Red Cavalry describe his experiences when he joined the Red Cossacks in the short 1920 war against Poland The emphasis is on the horrors of war and their effect on the men who fight some rising to heroic action, some unable to cope some unexpectedly rising to leadership, some escaping to brutalism In some respects they ar The stories are divided into four groups Early Stories, Autobiographical Stories, Red Cavalry , and Odessa Stories The stories, sometimeslike sketches, in Red Cavalry describe his experiences when he joined the Red Cossacks in the short 1920 war against Poland The emphasis is on the horrors of war and their effect on the men who fight some rising to heroic action, some unable to cope some unexpectedly rising to leadership, some escaping to brutalism In some respects they are equivalent to Crane s Red Badge of Courage The stories demonstrate that little has changed in the way men deal with the barbarities of war A young peasant is elevated to a position of leadership in the field, and he rides away from battle with the lordly indifference of a Tartar kahn On the other hand the narrator complains The chronicle of our humdrum evil doings constricts me indefatigably, like a heart complaint A red Cossack takes vicious revenge on white Russian villagers who were complicit in the murder of his pa...

    Between this translation by Constantine and an older one by Walter Morison, I prefer Constantine s He isdirect, perhaps even snappy or punchy, without sacrificing any of Babel s famously strange and lyrical imagery Not that Morison is weak, by any means I first encountered Babel through Morison and was bowled over by these violent yet compassionate stories Constantine just deepened exhiliration.My favorite stories are Dolgushov s Death, My First Goose, and Guy de Maupassant, whic Between this translation by Constantine and an older one by Walter...
