Synopsis

This volume in the Critical Insights series presents a variety of new essays on 19th century Russian writing, traditionally referred to as the Golden Age of Russian literature. For readers who are studying it for the first time, several essays survey the critical conversation regarding this period, explore its cultural and historical contexts and offer close analytical and comparative reading of key texts. Readers seeking a deeper understanding of the Golden Age of Russian literature can then move onto other essays that explore it in depth through a variety of critical and contextual approaches. Works that may be discussed include, among others, Alexander Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, Leo Tolstoy's War & Peace and Anna Karenina, Ivan Turgenev's Fathers & Sons, Gogol's short works and Dead Souls, Fyodor Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, and Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya. An exploration of the authors and literary works that identify with the Golden Age of Russian literature, this volume examines the prominent themes of the period. Salem's Critical Insights series distils the best of both classic and current literary criticism of the world's most-studied literature. The series focuses on an individual author's entire body of work, on single works of literature or on a literary theme. Edited and written by some of academe's most distinguished literary scholars, Critical Insights provide authoritative, in-depth scholarship suitable for students and teachers alike.
