Overview

Vasiliy Grossman: The Genesis and Evolution of a Russian Heretic by Frank Ellis

Vasiliy Grossman (1905-1964) is now regarded as one of the major Russian prose writers of this century whose works have been unjustly neglected. An eminent Soviet scholar said, "Solzhenitsyn writes for the hour, Grossman writes for the age" — a view widely endorsed by other important critics and writers. His two major works, Everything Flows and Life and Fate were only recently published in the former Soviet Union — a confirmation for many that glasnost was genuine.

This is the first major study of Grossman in English. It will be of interest not only to students of Russian literature and politics but also to those who seek a better understanding of the struggle for intellectual and moral autonomy in the totalitarian state.
