  • After Lermontovby Mikhail Lermontov; Peter France; Robyn Marsack

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 20.99

    Bursting into print with an impassioned poem on the death of Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov attracted unfavorable attention from the authorities while enjoying a high reputation in literary circles and beyond. He was of Scottish descent, and this bilingual volume celebrates him with new translations by 14 translator-poets, mostly Scottish. Although Lermontov... more...

  • A New Poetics of Chekhov's Playsby Harai Golomb

    Sussex Academic Press 2014; US$ 79.99

    One century after the death of Anton Chekhov (1860?1904), his plays are celebrated throughout the world as a major milestone in the history of theater and drama. Outside the Russian-speaking community, he is undoubtedly the most widely translated, studied, and performed of all Russian writers. His plays are characterized by their evasiveness: tragedy... more...

  • Chekhov: Shorts (NHB Classic Plays)by Anton Chekhov; Stephen Mulrine

    Nick Hern Books 2014; US$ 13.11

    This collection features Chekhov?s best-known short plays in brand new translations: three farces, two comic duologues and a monologue, all of them referred to by Chekhov as ‘vaudevilles? and all written in the late 1880s before any of his great full-length plays. ‘I don?t much care for theatre,? he wrote at the time, ‘but I do enjoy vaudevilles.?... more...

  • Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn and the Modern Russo-Jewish Questionby Nathan D. Larson

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 25.99

    Will the Russian and Jewish nations ever achieve true reconciliation? Why is there such disparity in the interpretations of Russo-Jewish history? Nobel Laureate Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn has focused on these and other thorny questions surrounding Russia?s Jewish Question for the last ten years, culminating in a two-volume historical essay that is among... more...

  • Dutch Contributions to the Fifteenth International Congress of Slavistsby Egbert Fortuin; Peter Houtzagers; Janneke Kalsbeek; Simeon Dekker

    Editions Rodopi 2014; US$ 76.00

    This volume, Dutch Contributions to the Fifteenth International Congress of Slavists (Minsk, 2013) presents a comprehensive overview of current Slavic linguistic research in the Netherlands, and covers its various linguistic disciplines (both synchronic and diachronic linguistics, language acquisition, history of linguistics) and subdomains (phonology,... more...

  • The Mannequins' Ballby Daniel Gerould; Bruno Jaslenski

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    This play, by Futurist poet Bruno Jasienski, is an outstanding example of the joining of left-wing politics and avant-garde interest in human mechanization that characterized the experimental theatre of Poland in the inter-war years. Stalinism and the purges cut short Jasienski's career and prevented productions of his play for many years - except... more...

  • A Hunt for Optimismby Viktor Shklovsky; Shushan Avagyan

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 16.00

    Begun in 1929 under the title ?New Prose,? and drastically revised after Vladimir Mayakovsky?s sudden death, A Hunt for Optimism (1931) circles obsessively around a single scene of interrogation in which a writer is subjected to a show trial for his unorthodoxy. Using multiple perspectives, fragments, and aphorisms, and bearing the vulnerability... more...

  • Dostoevsky Portrayed by His Wifeby Samuel Solomonovisch Koteliansky

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    The two note-books of the diary of Mme. Dostoevsky, the rough notes of her lengthy Reminiscences, unfinished at the time of her death, all in her own hand-writing, and copies of her husband?s letters to her from 1866 to 1881, were found in August 1922. The Diary is a large volume of about 400 pages, published in the original Russian by the Central... more...

  • Reflecting on Anna Kareninaby Mary Evans

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    Tolstoy?s Anna Karenina is considered by many to be one of the greatest novels ever written. This study of its morally ambiguous protagonist, Anna, discusses Tolstoy?s troubled relation to the feminine in terms of the fantasies, hopes, and fears that she represents. In Reflecting on Anna Karenina , first published in 1989, Mary Evans presents... more...

  • Dostoevsky 1821-1881by E.H. Carr

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    The bare events of Dostoevsky?s life ? his father murdered by peasants, his own ordeal before a firing squad, then exile in Siberia, his epilepsy, gambling, poverty and debts ? go far to account for his strange intensity of vision. This biography, first published in 1931, traces his wayward development, from his strict and secluded childhood to his... more...
