Turgenev and Russian culture : essays to honour Richard Peace by Joe Andrew( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Present Volume has its central aim a reassessment of the works of Ivan Turgenev for the twenty-first century. Against the background of a decline in interest in nineteenth-century literature the articles gathered here seek to argue that the period in general, and his work in particular, still have much to offer the modern sensibility. The volume also offers a great variety of approaches. Some of the contributors tackle major works by Turgenev, including Rudin and Smoke, while others address key themes that run through all his creative work. Yet others address his influence, as well as his broader relationship with Russian and other cultures. A final group of articles examines other key figures in Russian literary culture, including Belinskii, Herzen and Tolstoi. The work will therefore be of interest to students, postgraduates and specialists in the field of Russian literary culture. At the same time, the articles will stand as a tribute to the life and work of Professor Richard Peace, a long-standing specialist in nineteenth-century Russian literature, in whose honour the volume has been compiled --Book Jacket
Turgenev : art, ideology, and legacy by Robert Reid( )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Turgenev is in many ways the most enigmatic of the great nineteenth-century Russian writers. A realist, he was nevertheless drawn towards symbolism and the supernatural in his later career. Renowned for his authentic depictions of Russian life, he spent long periods in Europe and was more Western in outlook than many of his contemporaries. Though he stood aloof from politics, the major political issues of nineteenth-century Russia are central to his fiction. Interest in Turgenev remains strong in the twenty-first century, sustained by the amenability of his work to contemporary critical approaches and also by a recognition of the continuing relevance of his perspective on the perennial complexities of Russia's relations with Europe. This volume provides ample evidence of this interest. The chapters which comprise it are written by specialists on the writer and cover many aspects of Turgenev's creativity from his artistic method to such issues as the Jewish Question and Europe. It also examines his cultural legacy - in film and recent popular re-writes of his novels - as well as his influence on writers as diverse as Rozanov and Robert Dessaix. This work will be of interest to students, postgraduates and specialists in the field of Russian literary culture."--Publisher's website
Aspects of Dostoevskii : art, ethics and faith by Robert Reid( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps more than any other nineteenth-century Russian writer, Dostoevskii's continuing popularity rests on his contemporary relevance. The prophetic streak in his creativity gives him the same lasting appeal as dystopian novelists such as Zamiatin and Orwell whom he influenced and whose ethical concerns he anticipated. Religious themes are prominent in his work, too, and, though he was a believer, his interest seems to lie in the tension between faith and unbelief, which was felt as keenly in the Russia of his time as in our own. The nature of Dostoevskii's art also continues to be debated. The older tendency to disparage his literary method has given way to a recognition of the originality of his techniques, without which his ideological concerns would not have emerged with such thought-provoking clarity. The chapters which comprise this volume address these issues in a range of Dostoevskii's works, from shorter classics, such as House of the Dead and Notes from Underground to great novels such as Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov. This work will be of use to scholars and students of Dostoevskii at all levels as well as to those with an interest in nineteenth-century literature more generally."--Publisher's website
Dostoevskii's overcoat : influence, comparison, and transposition by Joe Andrew( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most famous quotations in the history of Russian literature is Fedor Dostoevskii's alleged assertion that 'We have all come out from underneath Gogol's Overcoat'. Even if Dostoevskii never said this, there is a great deal of truth in the comment. Gogol certainly was a profound influence on his work, as were many others. Part of this book's project is to locate Dostoevskii in relationship to his predecessors and contemporaries. However, the primary aim is to turn the oft-quoted apocryphal comment on its head, to see the profound influence Dostoevskii had on the lives, work and though

Lermontov's A hero of our time by Robert Reid( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mikhail Lermontov's A Hero of Our Time (1840), one of the great classics of Russian nineteenth-century literature, is a novel of unique structure, based on a series of short stories held together by a Byronic hero, Pechorin, whose gifted but embittered nature typified the so-called superfluous men of the 1830s. The novel, however, raises issues beyond the immediate socio-political context, the morality of imperialism, fate and free will, and the limits of self-knowledge." "The present study draws together the now considerable body of secondary material on Lermontov's novel, and offers new insights in the light of recent critical and theoretical trends on such aspects as ethnicity, militarism, narrative implications of diary form and the ludic dimension of fate. This up-to-date, comprehensive study of A Hero of Our Time will appeal to students at all levels of specialism."--Jacket
