Soul

Andrey Platonov (the author), Robert Chandler, Elizabeth Chandler, Olga Meerson (translators), ed. Soul. London, UK: The Harvill Press, 2003.

Dzhan/Soul. The famous Twentieth Century Russian writer's novel presents Stalin's national policy in Central Asia in terms of Freudian slips, philosophical echoes and allusions, and myth (here, the Sufi one, predominantly) -- which never deigns to explain the ineffable or the self-evident but instead simply shows it. These terms were the hardest to convey in translation but they are the trademark of Platonov's writing.
