Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Provides an introduction to a vast national culture, covering the 10th to the 20th centuries. ... The range of selections in this ambitious book is thoughtful. Recommended". — Library Journal<P>"One of the most comprehensive anthologies of Russian literature in English ever published, in terms of its chronological span and inclusion of genres". — British East-West Journal

Book News Annotation:

Arrangement of the selections is chronological, except for the early 19th century, when the progression is interrupted in order to arrange texts by topic. The introduction to each section places the literary works in their historical context and notes later cultural resonances. Following each text is an introductory guide to primary and secondary sources, including available aesthetic transformations of the work, its subjects, and its motifs in film, video, musical recordings, and art collections. These listings emphasize Russian rather than non- Russian responses in the arts (e.g. Sergei Bondarchuk's film adaptation of War and Peace rather than the American version). Rzhevsky is in the Russian department at SUNY, Stony Brook. Paper edition (unseen), $29.95.
