This trilogy is taken into account Voinovich's best paintings (well, i feel basically the 1st books have been out while so much critics have been making such statements). .. this can be the second one publication of the trilogy. i don't have an publication of the 1st, and it'd be welcomed!

The books stand all alone.

This hilarious novel following the continued adventures of Ivan Chonkin, an easy peasant who has been arrested as a traitor after spending international struggle II fortunately tending a backyard. during this sequel to the intense existence and Adventures of personal Ivan Chonkin, Vladimir Voinovich ridicules every thing sacred to the Soviet Union--the military, the justice process, the clicking, and Stalin himself--in a fresh mix of dissident judgment of right and wrong and common humor.

Publishers Weekly acknowledged approximately Pretender
to the Throne:“Voinovich adroitly orches­-
trates a comic book fugue of unsuitable identities,
false assumptions and significant misunder­-
standings as he satirizes approximately each side
of Soviet society. yet less than the comedian
fagade one absorbs the reality approximately lifestyles in
Russia; it constitutes a betrayal of human­-
ity whose enormity may perhaps certainly be most sensible
conveyed via sour, stinging satire
such as this memorable paintings. ”

Letter to Mr Wycherley, Ap. 1705. The Lord Lansdowne about the same time, mentioning the youth of our poet, says (in a printed Letter of the Character of Mr Wycherley) 'that if he goes on as he has begun in the pastoral way, as Virgil first tried his strength, we may hope to see English poetry vie with the Roman,' etc. Notwithstanding the early time of their production, the author esteemed these as the most correct in the versification, and musical in the numbers, of all his works. The reason for his labouring them into so much softness, was, doubtless, that this sort of poetry derives almost its whole beauty from a natural ease of thought and smoothness of verse; whereas that of most other kinds consists in the strength and fullness of both.
