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...

Isaak Babel' (1894-1940), the author of Red Cavalry, Odessa Tales, and Childhood Stories, is regarded by many as a master of the modern short story and a worthy heir of Chekhov. His laconic prose intrigues the reader and his bold imagery is strikingly innovative. For the first time the unexpurgated, complete versions of Babel''s fiction of the 1920s are analyzed...

This study analyzes individually all the instances of unexpected nonrhymes of Pushkin's completed rhymed poetry (with the exception of Evgenii Onegin), and all the instances of...

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...

Hugolin Gavlovic's Valaska Skola (The Shepherd's School), written in 1755 in the Slovak language before its codification in the late 1780s, will be of great interest to linguists as well as to specialists in Slovak literature and of the Slavic Baroque in general. Gavlovic (1712-87), a Franciscan priest, combined devotional poetry with an indignant social satire and broad range of...

Carpatho-Rusyn literature, which dates back to the sixteenth century, emerged as a distinct creative movement only after the revolutions of 1989 in Eastern Europe, where the ancestral Rusyn homeland straddles the borders of five countries: Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Romania. For much of the twentieth century, however, Rusyns did not officially exist, since Soviet-dominated governments stubbornly denied the existence...

Part history and part anthology, this close study of contemporary journal articles, letters, and poetry shows the extraordinary tension of the alternately competing and coalescing drives of nationalism and feminism among the Slovaks in Austria-Hungary. Women co-opted into the national movement learned to enlarge and internalize the new opportunities given them by national needs. The desperate position of the Slovaks...
