Overview

Late- and Post-Soviet Russian Literature: A Reader is an introduction to the most important works of Russian literature of the last fifty years. Organized both chronologically and thematically, it is a structured presentation of significant cultural developments and literary works intended for wide use in undergraduate courses on Russian literature and culture. Each chapter includes a selection of literary texts, excerpts from the Russian press, and scholarly writings that help to elucidate the relationship between art, its historical and cultural contexts, and its reception. Much of the reader's contents will appear in English translation for the first time. At present, no anthology of late- and post-Soviet writing exists. Late- and Post-Soviet Russian Literature: A Reader addresses this absence, and brings university curricula in Russian literature, culture, history, and area studies into the twenty-first century.

Reviews

This long-needed volume sets out an ambitious goal for itself-- to capture the multiple voices and meanings that have emerged in the last several decades of cultural change in Russia --and fulfills it in innovative ways. Its combination of primary and secondary sources, its editors' skilled selection of authors and texts, and its impressive topical and chronological scope should make this reader an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and scholars of contemporary Russian culture. --Seth Graham, University College London
