The first encounter by Andrey Bely( )

10 editions published between 1979 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in Russian in 1921 and never translated, Audrey Bely's long narrative poem--considered to be one of the great achievements of Russian Modernism--is translated to English here. A poet, critic, philosopher, and novelist, Bely was a leading figure among the Russian Symbolists, and The First Encounter is thought to be his greatest work in verse. The poem is autobiographical and reflects turn of-the-century Moscow with its mixture of entrenched positivism and new spiritualistic trends, cultural variety and the upheaval of the time. Originally published in 1979. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905
Andrey Bely : a critical review by Gerald Janecek( )

14 editions published between 1978 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrey Bely, novelist, essayist, theoretician, critic, and poet, was a central figure in the Russian Symbolist movement of the 1920s, the most important literary movement in Russia in this century. Bely articulated a Symbolist aesthetic and originated a new approach to the study of Russian metrics and versification, giving rise to a new scholarly discipline that still thrives in the West. Although regarded by some critics, including Vladimir Nabokov, as the author of the greatest Russian novel of this century, Bely has been nearly forgotten in his native country for ideological reason
The look of Russian literature : avant-garde visual experiments, 1900-1930 by Gerald Janecek( Book )

21 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gerald Janecek describes the experiments in visual, literature conducted from 1900 to 1930, the heyday of the Russian Avant Garde. Focusing on an aspect of Russian literary history that has previously been almost ignored, he shows how Russian writers of this period tried unusual methods to make their texts visually interesting or expressive. The book includes 183 illustrations, most from rare publications and many reproduced for the first time. The author discusses such figures as the Symbolist Andrey Bely, the Futurists Aleksey Kruchonykh, Vasili Kamensky, and Vladimir Mayakovsky, and the post-Futurist Ilya Zdanevich, and their use of devices ranging from unorthodox layouts and florid typography to roughly done lithographed or handmade books. Originally published in 1989. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions.

Staging the image : Dmitry Prigov as artist and writer( Book )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dmitry Prigov (1940?2007), the most prominent figure in Moscow Conceptualism, is not well known in the West because of a lack of English translations of his work and scholarship in English. This collection of articles by some of the most devoted experts on his work aims to change that by providing detailed discussions in English of Prigov?s broad-based oeuvre in the visual arts, poetry, and performance. The Prague workshop in 2014 upon which this collection is based situates his work in a global comparative perspective. Prigov traveled constantly in the 1990s and 2000s, and this movement between cultures is reflected in many of his works, which stage the visual and verbal image in an international environment. Prigov understood his artistic creativity as a lifelong project which surmounts the text in the service of strategic behavior. Each dimension of his creative work is distinguished through its performative character: writing, drawing, painting, poetry readings, which conceptualize a ?new anthropology.?
I live i see : selected poems by Vsevolod Nekrasov( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I LIVE I SEE presents a comprehensive survey of the work of Vsevolod Nekrasov (1934-1999), the Soviet literary underground's foremost minimalist. Exploring urban, rural, and purely linguistic environs with an economy of lyrical means and a dark sense of humor, Nekrasov's groundbreaking early poems rupture the stultified language of Soviet cliche while his later work tackles the excesses of the new Russian order. I LIVE I SEE is a testament to Nekrasov's lifelong conviction that art can not only withstand, but undermine oppression.Nekrasov's poetry, which is often characterized as minimalist, uses repetition and paranomasia to deconstruct and recontextualize his linguistic environment--he targets everything from stock Soviet political mottos to cliches people mutter to one another in everyday situations."--Publisher's description
