The Russian Gothic Novel surveys the long-overlooked subject of the Gothic novel in Russia. It focuses upon a variety of Russian writers, ranging from Karamzin and Bestuzhev-Marlinsky to Dostoevsky, Turgenev and Tolstoy, who were influenced by British Gothicists like Ann Radcliffe. The excitement and dynamism of the Gothic has long been ignored, as has the infusion of spirit into Russian...

Among the many paradoxes in Tolstoy's thought and action there is the dichotomy between his tremendous authority as an artist and his supposedly inconsequential, wrong-headed views on aesthetics, expressed in the treatise What is Art? The conventional view is that for many complex and obscure reasons Tolstoy in his old age abandoned all his artistic accomplishments and all his understanding...

The sharp controversy of the 1920's between Russian formalists and Marxist ideologists resulted, for Soviet literary scholarship, in a lasting categorical opposition to all "formal" studies; failing the criterion of ideological commitment, "Formalism" became synonymous with "anti-Marxism." Extended to all art and art criticism, this attitude produced tragic excesses during the postwar Zhdanovist era. With the onset of de-Stalinization there...
