As soon as the sun goes down and the darkness enfolds the earth, the day's weariness is forgotten, everything is forgiven, and the steppe breathes a light sigh from its broad bosom.
Едва зайдет солнце и землю окутает мгла, как дневная тоска забыта, всё прощено, и степь легко вздыхает широкою грудью.

The night was warm and seemed strangely still, as though everything were listening and expectant; and Bersenyev, enfolded in the still darkness, stopped involuntarily; and he, too, listened expectant.
Ночь была тепла и как-то особенно безмолвна, точно все кругом прислушивалось и караулило и Берсенев, охваченный неподвижною мглою, невольно останавливался и тоже прислушивался и караулил.

'So you will follow me everywhere?' he said to her, a quarter of an hour later, still enfolding her and keeping her close to him in his arms.

In the heart of the tumult Ludovico embraced him, quite literally enfolded him in his arms and kissed him, like a southerner—but like a Russian too—on both his cheeks; and this, despite his own emotion, took our wild traveller no little aback.
Среди этой сумятицы его обнял Лодовико, в буквальном смысле слова, и как южанин (или как русский) расцеловал в обе щеки, что очень смутило самовольно уезжавшего ученика.

A shirt without a collar, fastened with a heavy stud enfolded his thick neck and fell in full flowing folds over the almost feminine contours of his chest, leaving visible a large cypress-wood cross and an amulet.
Рубашка без ворота, с крупною запонкой, охватывала его полную шею и расходилась широкими, свободными складками на его почти женской груди, оставляя на виду большой кипарисовый крест и ладанку.
