The Portable Platonov

The Portable Platonov Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Platonov vividly presents the dreams of the

builders of socialism in all their inarticulate confusion,

with a sympathy not lessened by an unaparalleled awareness

of their tragic consequences.

Through incongruity of verbal choices and juxtapositions

Platonov expanded the limits of meaning and lent words new

and unexpected dimensions.

Synopsis:

Joseph Brodsky looked on Platonov as the equal of Joyce, Kafka and Proust. Platonov marked a new era in literature.

About the Author

After a lifetime of persecution Andrei Platonov (1899-1951) has emerged as one of the greatest writers of this century, an artist of profound genius, integrity and clarity of vision. Today he is venerated in Russia, and his major novels, Chevengur and The Foundation Pit, have been published in numerous editions. His influence on contemporary Russian writing is enormous, and he marked a new era in Russian literature, his language and style being so distinctive that for a long time his work defied translation. Platonov vividly presents the dreams of the builders of socialism in all their inarticulate confusion, with a sympathy not lessened by an unparalleled awareness of their tragic consequences. Joseph Brodsky looked on him as the equal of Joyce, Kafka and Proust.
