Erenburg) and classics of foreign literature (by such writers as J. London, A. France, and E. Zola). The mass series entitled The Workers’ and Peasants’ Library published works by A. P. Chekhov, V. G. Korolenko, L. N. Tolstoy, and others. The series The Library of Satire and Humor and The Library of Russian and Foreign Criticism were also issued.
