Translators S Rapoport, J Kenworthy say 'The mere incident of a man sacrificing his life by freezing to death in an effort to keep life and warmth in another, is not new, having been told by a French writer long ago. But what is new to the reader ... is the marvellous realistic description of village life in Russia'.
