But the '22 is shorter, right? I would think that would further indicate the author's intent. If it was a work that became longer with the years through various revisions then it might be more difficult to decide especially if the shorter, earlier one was better. But you could read a couple, read the available criticism, learn Russian and then make a choice. If only we had the time (and money) to do so...
:) Well, exactly! And the problem is compounded by the fact I have all 4 versions on Mount TBR. However, I'm not inclined to spend time on the Cournos as I've read not so good things about it. I would have gone for the Elsworth but there are no notes which I find odd. So I'm tossing up between MacDuff and Maguire/Malmstad which are a short or a long one - so it will probably be one of them!
That sounds like a nice TBR pile.
I think this will definitely be one of my reads of the year - and I'm so glad I read the McDuff Penguin version as it was just the right translation for me!
