  • Tolstoy's 'What Is Art?'by Terry Diffey

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 105.00

    With its demand that works of art be judged according to the their morally didactic content, Tolstoy?s reviled aesthetics has seemed to exclude from the canon far too many works widely accepted as masterpieces, including Shakespeare and Beethoven.

  • Russian Experimental Fictionby Edith W. Clowes

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 32.95

    In the three decades following Stalin's death, major underground Russian writers have subverted Soviet ideology by using parody to draw attention to its basis in utopian thought. Referring to utopian writing as diverse as Defoe's Robinson Crusoe , Dostoevsky's Notes from Underground , and Orwell's Animal Farm , they have tested notions of truth,... more...

  • Nabokov's Otherworldby Vladimir E. Alexandrov

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    A major reexamination of the novelist Vladimir Nabokov as "literary gamesman," this book systematically shows that behind his ironic manipulation of narrative and his puzzle-like treatment of detail there lies an aesthetic rooted in his intuition of a transcendent realm and in his consequent redefinition of "nature" and "artifice" as synonyms. Beginning... more...

The writers of the Balkan (Slavic) diaspora... more...
