Ancient Novel and Prose Fiction: Bibliography of Translations, Commentaries and Studies by Russian Scholars

Article excerpt

This Bibliography includes works of the scholars of the former USSR in different languages and some works of Russian scholars published in Western languages. The bibliography is compiled by Nina V. Braginskaia (Moscow) for AN and the Web bibliography supported by Dr. Jean Alvares.

Each item is rendered in English, in transliterated form, and in Cyrillic (if necessary). The translations aim to make it possible to understand the content of the work, the kind of edition and how to pronounce the name of the author and the title. It is not helpful in finding the book in the librarian catalogues. Only transliteration and Cyrillic form are designed for search in the library or book store. The transliteration follows System III recommended by J.Thomas Shaw (The Transliteration of Modern Russian for EnglishLanguage Publications. MLA, New York 1979) as most acceptable to use for bibliographies in literary or linguistic publications and for separately published bibliographies if the audience is to be international. The only exception is "e" instead of "e" for Cyrillic "[??]".

The order is alphabetic; the works of the same author, ancient or modern, follow the chronological order (the title is not taken into account).

The Bibliography is incomplete, both because it omits some titles and because it lacks some information about included titles (sometimes the editorial houses and pages are missing). Nevertheless I hope it makes sense to start in this form.

I am very grateful for checking of some of the translated titles to Eve Adler (Middlebury), Maria Plaza (Stockholm), Nina Perlina (Bloomington), Alla Zeide-Becker (New York).
