Andrey Bely, a critical study of the novels by J. D Elsworth( Book )

17 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Audrey Bely was one of the most innovative prose writers in Russian in the twentieth century. This book traces the development of his technique as a novelist from the early experimental Symphonies (1902–8) to the last novel, Masks, published in 1932. In the first two chapters of the book, Dr Elsworth explores Bely's theoretical writings on the aesthetic theory of Symbolism, and his association, after 1912, with the doctrines of Rudolf Steiner. Bely regarded art as an active force for the transformation of the human personality and the resolution of the crisis that he diagnosed in the culture of his time. Both the subject matter and the stylistic peculiarities of his novels have their origin in this particular philosophy of culture, and it is in this context that the novels are examined in the second half of the book. This book will be essential reading for all those interested in Bely and the wider subject of Russian Symbolist doctrine and practice
The silver age in Russian literature : selected papers from the Fourth World Congress for Soviet and East European Studies, Harrogate, 1990 by J. D Elsworth( Book )

20 editions published between 1900 and 1999 in 4 languages and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of ten essays by scholars from the Soviet Union, the United States and New Zealand on aspects of Russian literature of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. With the exception of Gorky, all the authors considered belong to one or another branch of the Modernist movement. They range from Ivan Konevskoi, precursor of Symbolism, who died tragically young in 1901, to Evgenii Zamiatin and Benedikt Livshits, writing in the 1920s. The work of Maksimilian Voloshin from the early years of the century through to the 1920s is reflected in three essays, while others are concerned with the work of Viacheslav Ivanov, Fedor Sologub and Andrei Belyi. All the essays are based upon papers that were read at the Fourth International Congress of Slavists at Harrogate in 1990. Each contribution advances our understanding either by offering a fresh interpretation or by presenting new material
