Twentieth-Century Russian Literature


This is the only volume in English that attempts to deal thoroughly with modern Russian literature- from Chekhov and Gorky to Solzhenitsyn and his contemporaries. Moore and Parry discuss the most significant phases of twentieth-century Russian literature- novels, dramas, poems, and films- but they also focus on all forms of communication, including newspapers printed by hidden presses and forbidden books by Russian and foreign authors. Everyone and everything of importance is illuminated in this comprehensive survey. Many writers are compellingly presented, and their lives and works viewed in the context of violent social and intellectual change.
