History of Russian Literature
Victor Terras (au). This magisterial work, written by one of the world’s foremost Slavic scholars, presents a survey of Russian literature from its beginnings in the 11th cent. to modern times. Terras argues that Russian literature has reflected, defined, & shaped the nation’s beliefs & goals, & he sets his survey against a background of social & political developments & religious & philosophic thought. This encyclopedic survey has capsule profiles of 100s of writers & literary works, capturing the full sweep of Russian literature, from 6th-cent. saints’ lives to Mayakovsky’s ‘cubo-futurist’ theater & contemporary samizdat poetry. The scope is vast: folk songs & tales, picaresque adventures, fables, drama, satire, novels, poetry, essays, & criticism. “Superb.”
