Hushour rated it really liked it "Let there just be what there is This is one of his most famous works, a collection of short stories few go over 10 pages whose themes are remarkably consistent: men and women falling in love and having sex. This might sound a little trite and, "Let there just be what there is Plus, most of the stories involve either some kind of illicit love or, frequently, doomed love.

As an exile from his homeland after the revolution, he also preserved in loving detail upper-class Russian life and its accoutrements for posterity. Snow, carriages and coachmen, servants, samovars, and country houses. He wrote many kinds of stories, as well as poetry, but this book is a collection of forty stories about love. Very few Russian Romeos Clik in Stix Bunin definitely had the genius of description and literary construction possessed by the older generations of Russian writers.

Very few of them end well, most have a desperate or fatalistic tone. On top of that, mores have changed, at least in the West. Outright rapes do not at least to me count as "love story" material. But such was that society of Czarist Russia where peasant girls and servants were obviously fair game. Many of the stories concern love affairs conducted at country estates or in summer dachas. Other girls from the lower class are just forgotten, a prostitute is murdered "Miss Clara" , husbands kill wives, lovers kill rivals, there are suicides and seductions galore, young love, old love, careless love, the faithful and the faithless.

Then there is the mystery of why we are attracted to someone, perhaps someone entirely inappropriate "A Riverside Inn". Perhaps it would have been better to have a book with all sorts of themes instead of only harping on varieties of love. Dark Avenues indeed if life is so gloomyif death cancels all the colors and warmth of existence, should we look upon life as always a tragedy?

Why not be glad to be alive? Love should banish angst and gloom, not encourage it. I guess I was not entirely satisfied with these stories, even if happy endings are not always realistic.
