Product Description

One of the most famous works of Russian literature, the four-act comedy in verse Woe from Wit skewers staid, nineteenth century Russian society, and it positively teems with “winged phrases” that are essential colloquialisms for students of Russian and Russian culture.

Presented here in bilingual format (English and accented Russian on facing pages), Griboyedov’s masterpiece becomes newly accessible to Russophiles of all levels and abilities. “Winged phrases” are highlighted throughout; archaic words and important historical references are footnoted; and a thorough biographical introduction prefaces the play. 

You will never regret any time spent reading, learning, and understanding Woe from Wit – few works of Russian literature have had such a lasting impact on the Russian mindset and soul.

  1. Birthday present for my wife. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2018

    I purchased this book for my wife who moved to the US last year, and is polishing her English. The dual display of Russian and English is helping her with some of the nuances of the English language. Ypa!

  2. Excellent !! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Oct 2017

    It met, if not exceeded, the quality I've come to expect from Russian Life publishing.
