Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sicher's erudition and analysis of the visual arts are excellent....In summarizing the arguments and reconsidering them from the viewpoint of these writers' Jewish identity, Sicher has done a valuable service. For those who know a lot about Russian-Jewish literature, but even for novices, this book is well woth reading." Nationalities Papers

"...an erudite and wide-ranging study. Cambridge University Press should be commended for reissuing it." --The Russian Review
