Product Description

Book Description

This introduction to the study of the Russian novel demonstrates how the form evolved from imitative beginnings to the point in the 1860s when it reached maturity and established itself as part of the European tradition. Professor Freeborn considers selected novels by Pushkin, Lermontov, Gogol, Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy.

Format: Paperback
Richard Freeborn looks at the development of the Russian novel from such classics as Pushkin’s ‘Eugene Onegin’, Lermontov’s ‘A Hero of Our Time’, Gogol’s ‘Dead Souls’, Goncharov’s ‘Rudin’ and ‘Oblomov’, Turgenev’s ‘Nest of the Gentry’ and ‘Fathers and Children’, Dostoevsky’s ‘Crime and Punishment’, ‘The Idiot’ and ‘The Brothers Karamazov’, to Tolstoy’s ‘Anna Karanina’ and ‘War and Peace’. This is a really outstanding account of the history and importance of Russian literature and Freeborn really has produced a fascinating study!
