Ivan Bunin (1870-1953) was a great writer and singer that Russia, which we lost as a result of the 1917 revolution. His writing destiny from the beginning was more than happily. Already in 1909 Bunin was elected an honorary member of the Academy of Sciences. However, the fate prepared for him the fate of the exile and in Soviet Russia, his work for many years remained banned, despite the fact that in the thirties he became a Nobel laureate. Today Bunin is a recognized classic of Russian literature, the successor of its best traditions, the voice of the historical mission of the Russian people, their spirit and national identity. These traits are reflected in one of the best works of the writer – the novel "Life of Arsenyev".
The book is illustrated with reproduced hand coloured etchings Alena Dergileva.
