Reviews

"During the last few decades of tsarist rule, Russian culture experienced an extraordinary flourishing. In many ways defined by its rejection of the positivist, Realist values of preceding generations, the literature of this Silver Age exemplified a spirit of innovation and experimentation. This volume contains career biographies of selected Russian writers (arranged alphabetically by name) who established themselves during this period. In the introduction, Kalb (U. of South Carolina) places the literary developments of the time within the larger context of changes in Russian society."--booknews@booknews.com (November 2004)
