About the Authors
  • This is the first work to examine the extraordinary history of literary journals in imperial Russia. Given the restrictions on political action and even political discussion in Russia, these journals served as the principal means by which Russia discovered, defined and shaped itself; and virtually every major Russian novel of the nineteenth century was first published there in serial form. Essays by leading scholars analyze the social forces shaping literary journals, and the major journals and journalists of the period.

    • The first full-length study of literary journals in imperial Russia
    • New insights into imperial Russian literature, culture and politics through study of literary journals
    • Contributions by leading scholars in Russian literature, culture and history
