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

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

“The collection is indeed wide-ranging, with a group of articles on the history of Pushkin scholarship, his biography, textology, and his manuscripts and a group on form, including one each on poetic form, lyric, the narrative poem, drama, prose, and fictive vs. non-fictive prose.”—Katya Hokanson, Slavic and European Journal

“The brilliance of The Pushkin Handbook is that it brings together some of the best Pushkinists from both continents under one cover, juxtaposing approaches, ideas, and even languages.”—Angela Brintlinger, Canadian Slavonic Papers
