Overview

This first encyclopedia of its kind in English covers ten centuries of Russian literature and includes nearly 1,000 entries by leading scholars. It will be an indispensable guide for students or the general reader.
"The Handbook is an Eden for browsers... a dependable, illuminating guide."-Robert Taylor, Boston Globe
"A comprehensive survey in one volume of one of the world's richest national literatures. The volume includes entries on authors, genres, literary movements, and period studies, together with reviews of notable journals. The lengthiest entries run to more than 6,000 words, the shortest have been kept to a single paragraph, giving the book value both for ready reference and as a collection of history and criticism."-Booklist
"The achievement here is grand, the knowledge collected invaluable."-Theoharis C. Theoharis, Christian Science Monitor
"A vast and informative compilation.... The magnificent panorama of Russian literature accumulatively unfolds, from its ancient folklore and earliest written texts... to our present century's structuralism, modernism, and socialist realism."-Gordon McVay, Times Higher Education Supplement
"For anyone interested in Russian literature, this new Handbook is the single most useful book to own."-J. Thomas Shaw, Slavic and East European Journal
"An indispensable source of concise information for all students of literature for years to come."-Ray Parrott, Philological Quarterly
