Notes

First complete edition in English, first impression. Although this translation by Glenny was beaten to the press by Mirra Ginsburg's translation earlier the same year, Ginsburg had taken as her copy text the heavily censored Soviet version, published in two issues of the journal Moskva in November 1966 and January 1967. There was also a samizdat version in circulation which included the parts cut out by the official censors, and Glenny was able to access the fuller text, producing this version, which remains the standard English translation of one of the 20th century's literary masterworks. The first appearance of the full text in Russian was published in Frankfurt in 1969.
