Overview

The Pushkin Handbook, a collection of studies by leading Pushkin scholars from the former Soviet Union, North America, and elsewhere, unites in one volume a multiplicity of voices engaged in a genuinely post-Soviet dialogue. From its beginnings, Pushkin’s oeuvre has accommodated numerous, often competing readings. This book is further testimony to the continuing complexity of Russia’s preeminent writer: his place in the literary and cultural cosmos, his relationship to his Russian predecessors and contemporaries, and his reception and interpretation at various points in history.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This ambitious companion to Russia's greatest poet is not a dictionary, not an anthology, but a monument that unfolds like a living museum of fragile contexts easily lost:  the life, the texts, the contexts, the cultural resonances. In this landmark bilingual project, Russian and American scholars come together over the ever-expanding miracle of Alexander Pushkin, whose voice once again transcends all regimes and methodologies."—Caryl Emerson, Princeton University

“The first stop for scholars and students of Pushkin. . . . Reading this volume felt like attending a Pushkin seminar team-taught by most of the preeminent Pushkin scholars active today. Just add Pushkin’s own writings.”—Michael C. Finke, Slavic Review

“There is no new book that would be more useful to any scholar or student interested in Pushkin.”—Igor Nemirovsky, The Russian Review
