This is a brilliant essay, written with elegance, informed, incisive, provocative...[Dr Kelly] is in the forefront of scholars of Russian literature...she will make her readers engage with a wide variety of authors and texts. (Professor Anthony Cross, head of Slavonic Studies Department, Cambridge University)
It seems to me brilliant and original, taking an unexpected approach to the subject, and it is written with great confidence and clarity. (Professor Peter France, University of Edinburgh)
