Agreement in Contemporary Standard Russian was a tremendous book for its time. It provides a host of sensible descriptive generalizations about difficult cases of agreement for gender and number, and the statistical surveys that have been published in Russia and the Soviet Union in more recent years generally confirm the validity of Crockett’s earlier, more intuitive generalizations.

Serbian literature is a branch of the large tree that grew on the rocky and often bloody Balkan Peninsula during the last millennium. Its initial impulse came from the introduction of Christianity in the ninth century among the pagan Slavic tribes, which had descended from the common-Slavic lands in Eastern Europe.

This reader for intermediate-advanced students is drawn from the "juicy" material of tabloid journalism; subjects range from the incredible and ridiculous to the horrendous and outrageous. The language is highly provocative, peppered with social stereotypes, and frequently characterized by "tongue-in-cheek" understatement. It abounds in quips and expressions which are representative of the everyday banter of relaxed conversation. Students of Russian...

Vassily Aksenov is generally recognized as one of the most prominent and important writers of the post-Stalinist period in Russian literature. He started the revival of experimentation in artistic technique after thirty years of the mandatory, but barren, style of Socialist Realism. He is perhaps the most significant heir of the Gogolian tradition in contemporary Russian literature. His phantasmagoric fiction...

One cannot approach Aleksandr Blok's poetry without asking some fundamental questions about the lyric cycle. Why did Blok organize virtually his entire lyric output into cycles? What information (if any) was he able to encode in the cycle that would have been absent otherwise? What need was there for him to create a cyclic construct unprecedented in Russian poetry --...

This study is chiefly concerned with the organization of the Italian Poems into a coherent meaningful structure. It demonstrates how the very order of the poems was determined by a conception of evolution which paralleled that of Blok's total oeuvre. Studied in this way, there emerges from the cycle a pattern charged with meaning and grounded in much larger issues...
