Editorial Reviews

"Professor Moser has had no easy task, and the overall result is a testimony to his very considerable skills as an editor. He facilitates the transition from one period to the next by furnishing at the beginning of each chapter a brief thumbnail sketch of the new period. In themselves these sketches are models of judiciousness. Read in sequence, they provide a fine condensed history of the entire literature....this volume will clearly become an important tool for both teachers and students of the Russian literary tradition."
