The autobiographical novel of co-consciousness : Goncharov, Woolf, and Joyce by Galya Diment( )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Russian Jew of Bloomsbury : the life and times of Samuel Koteliansky by Galya Diment( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Russian Jew of Bloomsbury looks at the remarkable influence that an outsider had on the tightly knit circle of Britain's cultural elite. Among Koteliansky's friends were Katherine Mansfield, Leonard and Virginia Woolf, Mark Gertler, Lady Ottoline Morrell, H.G. Wells, and Dilys Powell. But it was his close and turbulent friendship with D.H. Lawrence that proved to be Koteliansky's lasting legacy. In a lively and vibrant narrative, Galya Diment shows how, despite Kot's determination, he could never escape the dark aspects of his past or overcome the streak of anti-Semitism that ran through British society, including the hearts and minds of many of his famous literary friends
Pniniad : Vladimir Nabokov and Marc Szeftel by Galya Diment( )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galya Diment explores the complicated and fascinating relationship between Vladimir Nabokov and his Cornell colleague Marc Szeftel who, in the estimate of many, served as the prototype for the gentle protagonist of the novel Pnin. She offers astute comments on Nabokov's fictional process in creating Timofey Pnin and addresses hotly debated questions and long-standing riddles in Pnin and its history. Pniniad - the epic of Pnin - begins with Szeftel's early life in Russia and ends with his years in Seattle at the University of Washington, turning pivotally upon the time when Szeftel's and Nabokov's lives intersected at Cornell. Nabokov apparently was both amused by and admiring of the innocence of his historian friend. Szeftel's feelings toward Nabokov were also mixed, ranging from intense disappointment over rebuffed attempts to collaborate with Nabokov on a scholarly study (of a medieval Russian epic) or to write about his work (Lolita), to persistent envy of Nabokov's success and an increasing wistfulness over his own sense of failure. A generous selection of relevant archival materials includes Szeftel's autobiographical writings, his talks and published essays relating to Nabokov, and his correspondence with Nabokov and Roman Jakobson
Between heaven and hell : the myth of Siberia in Russian culture( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siberia has no history of independent political existence, no claim to a separate ethnic identity, and no clear borders. And yet, in some very important sense, the elusive country "behind the Urals" is the most real and the most durable part of the Russian landscape. For centuries, Siberia has been represented as Russia's alter ego, as the heavenly or infernal antithesis to the perceived complexity or shallowness of Russian life. It has been both the frightening heart of darkness and a fabulous land of plenty; the "House of the Dead" and the realm of utter freedom; a frozen wasteland and a colorful frontier; a dumping ground for Russia's rejects and the last refuge of its lost innocence. The contributors to Between Heaven and Hell examine the origin, nature, and implications of these images from historical, literary, geographical, anthropological, and linguistic perspectives. They create a fascinating picture of this enormous and mysterious land
Approaches to teaching Nabokov's Lolita( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goncharov's Oblomov : a critical companion( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No other novel has been used to describe the "Russian mentality" or "Russian soul" as frequently as Ivan Goncharov's Oblomov, first published in 1859. This guide will enable readers to appreciate fully both the remarkable talent of this Russian writer and his masterpiece." "The contributors to this volume begin from the premise that perhaps more than any other Russian writer of the nineteenth century, Goncharov needs rereadings and reevaluations. Accordingly, this volume balances the older, more traditional interpretations of Goncharov's most famous novel with the newer, more probing ones."--Jacket
Katherine Mansfield and Russia by Galya Diment( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Katherine Mansfield's passion for Russian literature and culture is well documented in her letters and notebooks. Anton Chekhov was not just one of her most significant literary influences, but also a mythological presence with whom she mentally communicated every day. The emotional bond became even stronger when she discovered that the two of them shared the same deadly disease. But her fascination with Russia and its culture extended beyond Chekov and included the Ballets Russes and an interest in Russian politics, in part sparked by Maxim Gorky. She also read and assimilated several other Russian writers, including Fyodor Dostoevsky and Marie Bashkirtseff as well as Leo Tolstoy. This volume presents essays that engage with many aspects of Mansfield's response to all things Russian as well as to the Russians she met in England and France. In addition, the volume presents a collection of images of Gurdjieff's Institute at Fontainebleau, several of which have never been seen before
Oblomov by Ivan Aleksandrovich Goncharov( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ilya Ilyich Oblomov is a member of Russia's dying aristocracy - a man so lazy that he has given up his job in the Civil Service, neglected his books, insulted his friends and found himself in debt. Too apathetic to do anything about his problems, he lives in a grubby, crumbling apartment, waited on by Zakhar, his equally idle servant. Terrified by the bustle and activity necessary to participate in the real world, Oblomov manages to avoid work and postpone change, and - finally - risks losing the love of his life
Split autobiographical selves : duality and autobiography in the works of Ivan Goncharov, Virginia Woolf and James Joyce by Galya Diment( )

7 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines "duality" in Goncharov's Common Story, Joyce's Ulysses, and Woolf's To the Lighthouse. Few works can serve as better material for a study of the "split self" in fiction: like the two faces of Janus, the characters of the Aduevs, Dedalus and Bloom, Cam Ramsay and Lily Briscoe point in opposite directions--past and present, innocence and experience--yet in their totality provide a more complete, even if at times more confusing, portrait of their creators
