A history of Russian literature by Victor Terras( Book )

14 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 1,273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This magisterial work, written by one of the world's foremost Slavic scholars, presents a survey of Russian literature from its beginnings in the eleventh century to modern times. Victor Terras argues eloquently that Russian literature has reflected, defined, and shaped the nation's beliefs and goals, and he sets his survey against a background of social and political developments and religious and philosophic thought. He traces a rich literary heritage that ranges from the early folklore, the medieval literatures, the dissident and emigre writing after the revolution, and the masterful realist fiction of Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoi, to the dissident literary movement that followed Stalin's death. - Publisher

"This book presents sixteen leading poets of the "Silver Age" or Russian poetry, so called only because the designation of "Golden Age" already belonged to the age of Pushkin." "This book is addressed mainly to a reader who does not read Russian, but takes an interest, academic or otherwise, in Russian poetry and would like to learn more about it than could be learned from an anthology or from a history of Russian literature. Enough poems by each poet are presented to give the reader an idea of the poet's main topics, devices, and idiosyncratic poetic vision. Enough biographic, literary, and contingent background is provided to facilitate the understanding of each poem."--BOOK JACKET

The little tragedies by Aleksandr Sergeevich Pushkin( Book )

11 editions published between 1966 and 1995 in Russian and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexander Pushkin's "little tragedies" stand among the great masterpieces of Russian literature, yet they were last translated into English a quarter-century ago and have in recent years been out of print entirely. In this new translation, Nancy K. Anderson preserves the cadence and intensity of Pushkin's work while aligning it with today's poetic practices and freer approach to metrics. In addition she provides critical essays examining each play in depth, a discussion of her approach to translating the plays, and a consideration of the genre of these dramatic pieces and their performability."--Jacket
