A series of concise, engrossing, and enlightening books that explore every subject under the sun with unique insight. Rather than presenging a conventional chronology of Russian literature, this book considers the place and importance of all kinds of literature in Russian culture. Catriona Kelly focuses on Pushkin -- considered "the Russian Shakespeare" -- whose work influenced all Russian writers, whether poets or novelists, as well as artists in other fields.
