Farewell: from “Scorched By the Fires of War”
This is my favourite amongst Korzhev-Chuvelyov’s works. There is no mawkishness or sentimentality… there is no pretence… there is nothing but a ruthless and no-holds-barred depiction of a soldier’s farewell to his wife. Shall they be reunited on this earth? No one knows… least of all, them.
This is truth.
