Overview

This magisterial work, written by one of the world's foremost Slavic scholars, presents a survey of Russian literature from its beginnings in the eleventh century to modern times. Victor Terras argues eloquently that Russian literature has reflected, defined, and shaped the nation's beliefs and goals, and he sets his survey against a background of social and political developments and religious and philosophic thought. He traces a rich literary heritage that ranges from the early folklore, the medieval literatures, the dissident and emigre writing after the revolution, and the masterful realist fiction of Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoi, to the dissident literary movement that followed Stalin's death.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This encyclopedic, invaluable survey captures the full sweep of Russian literature, from sixth-century saints' lives to Mayakovsky's ``cubo-futurist'' theater and contemporary samizdat poetry. With capsule profiles of hundreds of writers and literary works, the book compresses an enormous wealth of information into 650 pages. The scope is vast: folk songs and tales, picaresque adventures, fables, drama, satire, novels, poetry, essays, criticism. Terras ( Handbook of Russian Literature ) plausibly argues that Russian literature has compulsively but not successfully sought political relevance, whether in medieval chronicles and war tales or in Tolstoy, Dostoyevski and Turgenev, all of whom used the novel as a forum for social and political debate. This ready reference both for scholars and for serious students sets Russian literature in a social and political context that makes it more accessible to Western readers. (Feb.)
