Just as the key to Fedor Tjutchev’s life is his poetry, the key to his euphonious lyrics is sound. Tjutchev’s poetry demonstrates how he greatly extended the field of poetic sound form, much beyond the accomplishments of his predecessors.

This issue is part of the larger cultural and literary paradigm which surfaced in the nineteenth century, namely, the isolation of intellectuals from both the autocracy and the lower classes. Since open condemnation of...

Foreign accounts of Muscovy have long been recognized as fundamental historical sources. Generally speaking, they relate two kinds of evidence for those interested in early modern affairs. First, the accounts provide ample information about Muscovite society itself. Works such as Herberstein's seminal Rerum moscoviticarum (Vienna, 1549) offer modern historians rich data about Muscovite social, cultural, political, and military practices. The...
