Robert Mann reexamines the hypothesis that the Slovo o polku Igoreve is the work of a highly literate poet and concludes that the Slovo is more likely the text of a 12th-century court song. This study introduces a large number of new folkloric parallels showing that ancient Slavic wedding ritual and wedding song motifs served as a primary model for...

Students learning Russian require more time for grammar than students of most other languages. Developing an adequate vocabulary presents an even greater challenge. But in vocabulary acquisition, students of Russian have an impressive potential advantage. With training, students can build a large vocabulary based on a relatively few very productive word elements – roots, prefixes, and suffixes. In Russian the...


Chapter I examines the neuter, which is the rarest of the three Russian genders, paradigmatically and syntagmatically. Moreover, its rate of decline is accelerating. The neuter's productive base is shown to be very narrow and highly syncretic. Historically it has followed a "bust-boom-bust" cycle which appears to be crucial to its predominant function as a stylistically and semantically specialized category....

“He could not have said exactly what he was hearing. A baby’s sweet babbling? A hesitant declaration of love? He does not know. But the sound moves him as if he might discover in it something eternally important, something unlike he has ever known before, something that is, at the same time, hazily familiar. When the kuy is over, his...

The Gulag, a network of labor camps across the former Soviet Union, first came to the attention of the English-speaking world in 1974, with the translation of Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago. Author Anne Applebaum estimates that as many as 18 million people passed through the Gulag between 1929 and 1953. And, as Lynne Viola has documented in her Unknown Gulag,...


The letters to Princess Volkonskaya published in this book reflect nearly thirty years of Russian and European history: the Napoleonic Wars, victory and the subsequent upheavals, the religious struggles between the Russian Orthodox Church and the growing influence of Roman Catholicism. Her correspondents included Tsar Alexander I (with whom she had at least a very close relationship), Cardinal Consalvi (the...

Yevsey Tseytlin, translated by Alexander Rojavin


Yevsey Tseytlin’s Long Conversations in Anticipation of a Joyous Death  came about as the result of an unusual experiment. The subject of this book is unusual and deceptively simple: two authors, one young, one old and ailing, maintain a conversation over a period of five years. The setting is the city Vilnius—known before World War II as the “Jerusalem of...
