Theory of prose by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

161 editions published between 1925 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Viktor Shklovsky's 1925 book Theory of Prose might have become the most important work of literary criticism in the twentieth century had not two obstacles barred its way: the crackdown by the Soviet dictatorship on Shklovsky and other Russian Formalists in the 1930s, and the unavailability of an English translation. Now translated in its entirety for the first time, Theory of Prose not only anticipates structuralism and post-structuralism, but poses questions about the nature of fiction that are as provocative today as they were in the 1920s. Arguing that writers structure their material according to artistic principles rather than from attempts to imitate "reality," Shklovsky uses Cervantes, Tolstoi, Sterne, Dickens, Bely, and Rozanov to give us a new way of thinking about fiction and, in his most impassioned moments, about the world. Benjamin Sher's lucid translation will allow Shklovsky's Theory of Prose to fulfill its destiny as a major theoretical work of the twentieth century." from back cover

Zoo; or, Letters not about love by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

14 editions published between 1971 and 2012 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While living in exile in Berlin, Viktor Shklovsky fell in love with Elsa Triolet (the "Alya" of this novel). Shklovsky was in the habit of sending Elsa several letters a day, a situation she accepted under one condition: he was forbidden to write about love. Zoo, or Letters Not about Love is an epistolary novel born of this constraint, and although the brilliant and playful letters contained here cover everything from observations about contemporary German and Russian life to theories of art and literature, nonetheless every one of them is indirectly dedicated to the one topic they are all required to avoid: their author's own unrequited love."--Jacket

Third factory by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

28 editions published between 1926 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Víktor Shklovski, autor de una importante obra de teoría literaria y precursor del formalismo ruso, aparece en La tercera fábrica (1926) y Érase una vez (1964) como el protagonista de un conjunto de memorias donde se registra una época decisiva: las primeras décadas del siglo XX. Años de acción, años de revolución y guerras, años de grandes ideas en los que el genio no era suficiente para vivir: había que estar dispuesto a "meterse en la picadora de carne". ¿Cómo escribir sobre esos años? ¿Cómo narrar el recuerdo de ese momento en que el individuo, finalmente, terminaría disolviéndose en un sueño colectivo? ¿Cómo afirmar que, detrás y por encima de todo, está la vida? El recuerdo de Shklovski es el de todo aquello que contribuyó a construir la vida, lo que se combina formando la fábrica de la vida, la "tercera fábrica": la familia, la ciudad de San Petersburgo, los hombres que marcaron la época (Maiakovski, Blok, Gorki, Lenin, los futuristas, los formalistas), la revolución, el trabajo, la literatura, el mundo del arte, la incipiente cinematografía, las discusiones que se volvieron combates, la teoría que se volvió guerra. En las dos obras que componen este volumen, traducidas del ruso al español en forma directa y completa, la conmovedora sensibilidad y el estilo preciso, personal y vigoroso de Shklovski envuelven al lector en el rumor de su tiempo, que encuentra en estas memorias uno de sus ecos más resonantes."--Contratapa

In this essay, a leading figure of the Russian Formalist movement of the 1910s and 1920s enunciates the function of the arts: what they are and, more importantly, what they are not.

A hunt for optimism by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

13 editions published between 1931 and 2013 in Russian and English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book 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 of both the Russian Jewry and the anti-Bolshevik intelligentsia-who had unwittingly become the enemies of the people. This book satirizes Soviet censorship and the ineptitude of Soviet leaders with acerbic panache

A sentimental journey; memoirs, 1917-1922 by Viktor Shklovskiĭ( Book )

35 editions published between 1923 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Viktor Shklovsky's A Sentimental Journey, which borrows its title from Laurence Sterne, describes the travels of a bewildered intellectual through Russia, Persia, the Ukraine, and the Caucasus during the period of the Russian Revolution. Valuable as a historical document for its first-hand account of the events during the period of 1917-1922, A Sentimental Journey is also an important experimental literary work - a memoir in the form of a novel." "At times lyrical, disturbing, ironic, and erudite, A Sentimental Journey is a singular book from one of the most recognizable and influential voices of twentieth- century Russian literature."--Jacket
