  • 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 Look of Russian Literatureby Gerald Janecek

    Gerald Janecek describes the experiments in visual, literature conducted from 1900 to 1930, the heyday of the Russian Avant Garde.

  • Worlds Within Worldsby Jane Tussey Costlow

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    The novelist Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883) is known primarily as a chronicler of his age and crafter of elegant prose--like the simplest painting of daily artifacts, his works have pleased partly because they shape a recognizable world and partly because their form gives to the content its resonant signifying power. Here Jane Costlow accounts for both... more...

  • Esthetics as Nightmareby Charles A. Moser

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 40.50

    As an epoch of "censorship terror" drew to a close with the death of Nicholas I and the end of the Crimean War, Russian intellectuals had begun expressing their desires for political, philosophical, and religious reform through passionate debates over literature and esthetics. Charles Moser re-creates the leading controversies over literature and... more...

  • Hagiography and Modern Russian Literatureby Margaret Ziolkowski

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    The heritage of medieval hagiography, the diverse and voluminous literature devoted to saints, was much more important in nineteenth-century Russia than is often recognized. Although scholars have treated examples of the influence of hagiographic writing on a few prominent Russian writers, Margaret Ziolkowski is the first to describe the vast extent... more...

  • The Fiction of the Poetby Anna Elizabeth Balakian

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Addressing all readers who value the beauty of language, Anna Balakian examines the work of five twentieth-century poets--Yeats, Valry, Rilke, Stevens, and Guilln--to show how the linguistic richness of the symbolist tradition continued well into the modern period. These writers, all of whom learned the poetry of language from Mallarm, compensated... more...
