Horace Gray Lunt (1918–2010), one of the leading Slavic philologists of his time, spent his entire academic career at Harvard University (1949–89), where he helped to train generations of graduate students in Slavic philology and linguistics, many of whom went on to occupy college and university posts throughout the United States. The present volume, Philology Broad and Deep, contains twenty-one essays...

During a distinguished academic career at Belgrade University, UCLA, and Harvard University, Kiril Taranovsky became extraordinarily influential for his contributions to verse theory and for studies devoted to Russian poets, especially those of the Silver Age. His statistical approach to versification led to fundamental findings that have become integral to the understanding of the nature and the history of rhythm...


The seven related articles in this volume of Indiana Slavic Studies doubly counter the dominant focus in Polish Studies scholarship on "Literature penned by Great Men." This anthology turns the spotlight elsewhere—on the careers, works, and reception of Polish women in the visual and performing arts. The subject of our collection, in both senses, in the Polish woman who has...

The penultimate volume in Professor Michael Mikos's award-winning multi-volume survey of Polish literature in translation is devoted to two separate periods: Realism and "Young Poland", together spanning the years from 1865-1918. The annotated translations are accompanied by two critical introductions to each period, as well as biographical notes on the writers represented.


This double volume covers the periods from 1918 to 1939 and from 1945 to 2000 and constitutes the sixth and last part of the history and anthology of Polish literature from its beginnings to the year 2000. The task of making a comprehensive selection of authors and their works, particularly for the period from 1945 to 2000, was particularly difficult...

The period of Romanticism has a special meaning for the Polish people. In spite of political and military defeats suffered between 1772 and 1863, and, most tragically, the loss of independence, Poland "had not lost her life yet." Considerable credit for her survival and subsequent rebirth must be given to Adam Mickiewicz, Juliusz Slowacki, Zygmunt Krasinski, and Cyprian Norwid, the...


Polish Syllables is the first comprehensive study of the role that syllable structure plays in the phonology and morphology of a Slavic language. This autosegmental generative analysis offers completely new solutions to several fundamental problems of Polish phonology and makes the theoretical claim that there are two stages of syllabification which are phonologically significant. Chapter One proposes a set of...


Political Humor Under Stalin is an anthology of jokes, wisecracks, and satire from the Soviet 1930's and '40s that provides a glimpse of everyday dissembling and dissent in one of the modern world's most repressive societies. More than merely a joke book, it offers no less than a folkloric counter narrative to the "official" history of the USSR, as well...

This book presents a systematic approach to the spelling and pronunciation of Contemporary Standard Russian. Beginning with the standard orthography, three transcriptions are derived: the first is appropriate for grammatical (morphological) analysis, the second and third for phonology and phonetics. Students start with what they know--the spelling--and, by using ordered sets of rules, they learn to rewrite Russian words in...

By an analysis of the information about Belkin and the circumstances of the writing of the work, it is shown that Pushkin intended the work as a coded message concerning December 1825 and the events which followed.

Pushkin's unexpected nonrhymes and rhymes consitute an important part of his poetics of the unexpected; however, hitherto they have never been studied in any detail, and, indeed have only rarely been even touched upon. 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...
