Red virgin soil; Soviet literature in the 1920's by Robert A Maguire( Book )

28 editions published between 1968 and 2004 in English and Russian and held by 1,031 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Red Virgin Soil is a detailed study of the eponymous journal that was the most significant Soviet literary journal of the 1920's. The journal published belles lettres, theory, and criticism and represented the first serious attempt in Russia in nearly half a century to shape an entire generation of writers, readers, and critics through the energy and authority of such a forum." "Maguire's work is also a survey of Soviet literary culture in that critical period between the end of the Civil War and the onslaught of the Stalinist era, a period when writers could still engage in public debate about literature's role in the building of a revolutionary culture."--BOOK JACKET

Sounds, feelings, thoughts : seventy poems by Wisława Szymborska( Book )

6 editions published between 1981 and 1997 in English and Polish and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translated and Introduced by Magnus J. Krynski and Robert A. Maguire Regarded as one of the best representatives since World War II of the rich and ancient art of poetry in Poland, Wislawa Szymborska (b. 1923) is, in the translators' words, "that rarest of phenomena: a serious poet who commands a large audience in her native land." The seventy poems in this bilingual edition are among the largest and most representative offering of her work in English, with particular emphasis on the period since 1967. They illustrate virtually all her major themes and most of her important techniques. Describing Szymborka's poetry, Magnus Krynski and Robert Maguire write that her verse is marked by high seriousness, delightful inventiveness, a prodigal imagination, and enormous technical skill. She writes of the diversity, plenitude, and richness of the world, taking delight in observing and naming its phenomena. She looks on with wonder, astonishment, and amusement, but almost never with despair. --Publisher

Petersburg by Andrej Belyj( )

Andrei Bely's novel Petersburg is considered one of the four greatest prose masterpieces of the 20th century. In this new edition of the best-selling translation, the reader will have access to the translators' detailed commentary, which provides the necessary historical and literary context for understanding the novel, as well as a foreword by Olga Matich, acclaimed scholar of Russian literature. Set in 1905 in St. Petersburg, a city in the throes of sociopolitical conflict, the novel follows university student Nikolai Apollonovich Ableukhov, who has entangled himself with a revolutionary terrorist organization with plans to assassinate a government official--Nikolai's own father, Apollon Apollonovich Ableukhov. With a sprawling cast of characters, set against a nightmarish city, it is all at once a historical, political, philosophical, and darkly comedic novel--back cover
