Most widely held works by Donald Fanger
Dostoevsky and romantic realism : a study of Dostoevsky in relation to Balzac, Dickens, and Gogol by Donald Fanger( Book )

54 editions published between 1965 and 1998 in English and French and held by 1,908 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creation of Nikolai Gogol by Donald Fanger( Book )

28 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nikolai Gogol, Russia's greatest comic writer, is a literary enigma. His masterworks have attracted contradictory labels over the years, even as the originality of his achievement continues to defy exact explanation. Fanger's superb new book begins by considering why this should be so, and goes onto survey what Gogol created, step by step: an extraordinary body of writing, a model for the writer in Russian society, a textual identity that eclipses his scanty biography, and a kind of fiction unique in its time
Gorky's Tolstoy & other reminiscences : key writings by and about Maxim Gorky by Maksim Gorky( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maxim Gorky (1868-1936) enjoyed worldwide fame of a kind unmatched by that of any other writer in the first half of the twentieth century. Prodigiously gifted and prolific, awash in contradictions, praised increasingly for political rather than literary reasons, he left a vast body of writing that contains acknowledged masterpieces alongside many works that still await impartial assessment." "Taken together, the pieces in this book (many of them based on fuller texts than those of previously published translations) present a surprising and unfamiliar Gorky - a figure who, once the cliches are stripped away from him, becomes ever more fascinating and enigmatic as man, as writer, and as historical figure. Among the volume's selections are portraits of Gorky by four astute observers: poet Vladislav Khodasevich, critics Boris Eikhenbaum and Georgy Adamovich, and novelist Evgeny Zamiatin." "Donald Fanger's annotations and introduction will make this book indispensable to every reader with an interest in Tolstoy, Gorky, modern Russian literature and politics, or the art of the memoir."--Jacket

Child of giants : my journey with Maynard Dixon and Dorothea Lange( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Rhodes Dixon is the elder son of photographer Dorothea Lange, who was responsible for some of the most unforgettable photographs of the Great Depression, and painter Maynard Dixon, the preeminent interpreter of the American Southwest and its native peoples. As a child, Daniel came to recognize their extraordinary talents, but his view of them changed dramatically during the Depression, when he and his younger brother John were placed in a series of foster homes, never knowing when they might see their parents again. While telling the story of two of this country's most original artists from a uniquely personal perspective, Child of Giants is also about gifts and curses - the story of every child who must find his own path in life from under the shadow of formidable parents

10 editions published in 1966 in 3 languages and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The diary of a madman and other stories. by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some call him a Russian Mark Twain. And with his special blend of comedy, social commentary, and fantasy, Nikolai Gogol paved the way for his countrymen Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. This sampling of Gogol's works includes the increasingly fantastic entries of 'The Diary of a Madman,' followed by the wonderfully surrealistic 'The Nose,' in which the title character embarks on some unlikely activities when separated from its owner's face. In 'The Carriage,' a pompous landowner gets his comeuppance when he attempts to impress a general. Rounding out the collection are the woefully comic tale of a clerk's acquisition of 'The Overcoat' and the celebrated novella 'Taras Bulba' about the Ukrainian mythic hero said to have led a bloody Cossack revolt against the Poles

Svetlana Boym: Exile and Imagination( Visual )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary film is about the life and work of Svetlana Boym, literary and cultural critic, media artist, novelist and playwright. In 1980, age 21, Svetlana left the USSR for the US, unable to pursue studies at the Leningrad university because of the Jewish quota. After graduate studies at Boston University and Harvard, she became the Professor of Slavic and Comparative Literature at Harvard. A brilliant writer of ambitious scope and great imagination, combining personal memoir with philosophical essay and historical analysis, she explored motifs of exile, nostalgia, the diasporic imagination and different forms of freedom in Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Nabokov, Mandelstahm, Akhmatova, Brodsky, and many others, in a total of six books, with two more about to appear. Through videos of her lectures and interviews, together with photographs since her childhood, and her own photographs, and photomontages, the film conveys this remarkable person and her scholarly, critical, and artistic contributions

The Other Boston Busing Story( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

METCO, America's longest-running voluntary school desegregation program, has for 34 years bused black children from Boston's city neighborhoods to predominantly white suburban schools. In contrast to the infamous violence and rage of forced school busing within the city in the 1970s, METCO has quietly and calmly promoted school integration. How has this program affected the lives of its graduates? Would they choose to participate if they had it to do over again? Would they place their own children on the bus to suburbia?Sixty-five METCO graduates vividly recall their own stories in this revealing book. Susan E. Eaton interviewed program participants who are now adults, asking them to assess the benefits and hardships of crossing racial and class lines on their way to school. Their answers poignantly show that this type of racial integration is not easy--they struggled to negotiate both black and white worlds, often feeling fully accepted in neither. Even so, nearly all the participants believe the long-term gains outweighed the costs and would choose a similar program for their own children--though not without conditions and apprehensions.Even as courts and policymakers today are forcing the abandonment of desegregation, educators warn that students are better prepared in schools that reflect our national diversity. This book offers an accessible and moving account of a rare program that, despite serious challenges, provides a practical remedy for the persistent inequalities in American education
