Item description for Russian Literature and the Classics (Studies in Russian & European Literature) by Peter I. Barta...
Russian Literature and the Classics attempts to fill a gap - to date there has been no book-length, systematic study of the impact of antiquity on Russian literature and culture. While by no means claiming to offer a comprehensive approach, the authors focus on various aspects of the influence which the Classics have had on Russian literature at particularly significant junctures, such as the beginning of the nineteenth century; the age of the great Russian realist novel; the "Silver Age"; Stalin's terror; the "Thaw" after 1956, and the period just before the collapse of Soviet society. In their introductory essay, the editors offer an overview of the Classical Tradition throughout the historical continuum of European culture that provides an insight into the contrasting ways in which that tradition manifested itself in the literature of Western and Central Europe as compared to the development of the Classical Tradition in Russia.
