The Pushkin Handbook

Overview

"The Pushkin Handbook, a collection of new 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." "Contributors to the volume consider Pushkin in terms of his biography; his innovations in the forms of lyric, narrative poem, novel in verse, drama, and fictional prose; his thoughts on history, politics, and literature; the textual challenges of his work; and the problems of translating it.

Overview

"The Pushkin Handbook, a collection of new 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." "Contributors to the volume consider Pushkin in terms of his biography; his innovations in the forms of lyric, narrative poem, novel in verse, drama, and fictional prose; his thoughts on history, politics, and literature; the textual challenges of his work; and the problems of translating it. Another major focus is Pushkin's place in the literary and cultural cosmos: his relationship to his Russian predecessors and contemporaries, his responses to other European literature, his role within the traditions of Romanticism and Realism, and his reception and interpretation by readers at various points in history." From its beginnings Pushkin's oeuvre has accommodated numerous, often competing readings (of which the major trends are discussed in David Bethea's introduction). The Pushkin Handbook - containing arguments whose wellsprings lie in a range of intellectual traditions, including structuralism, prosody, Bakhtin, Orientalist studies, musicology, and more - if further testimony to the continuing complexity of Russia's preeminent writer.

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
