A quarrelsome old widow fills her house with her serfs, whom she controls like a puppeteer. She takes a huge deaf mute field hand and has him sent to her house in Moscow to be her porter. When she marries his love interest to another serf, he is heartbroken until he finds a half-drowned puppy.
An easy-going melancholy story, well-translated, with good characters and descriptions.
