Russian literature

by Uhur

One of the first things that comes to mind regarding Russia is its literature. Throughout the ages, Russia has produced great names like Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Gogol, etc. who have enriched the world of literature.

A lot of movies have gotten their plot from the books written by Russians: War and Peace (1956) with Henry Fonda and Audrey Hepburn, Anna Karenina (who has at least 6-7 different movie adaptions according to IMDB.com), Doctor Zhivago, which is widely considered a classic, and more.

However, the coin has two sides, and during different periods in Russia, novelists have been persecuted. Whoever wouldn't write for the regime was harassed. For example, novelists burned their manuscripts due to that: Gogol and Sholokhov, to name a few.

In conclusion, Russian literature has a lot of great works, but the novelists have had a lot of hard times.
