The Pushkin Handbook, a collection of studies by leading Pushkin scholars from the former Soviet Union, North America, and elsewhere, unites in one volume a multiplicity of voices engaged in a genuinely post-Soviet dialogue. From its beginnings, Pushkin’s oeuvre has accommodated numerous, often competing readings. This book is further testimony to the continuing complexity of Russia’s preeminent writer: his place in the literary and cultural cosmos, his relationship to his Russian predecessors and contemporaries, and his reception and interpretation at various points in history.
David M. Bethea is the Vilas Professor of Slavic Languages and Literature at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He is the author of The Superstitious Muse, Realizing Metaphors: Alexander Pushkin and the Life of the Poet, and Joseph Brodsky and the Creation of Exile as well as the editor of Pushkin Today.

Editorial Reviews

“The brilliance of The Pushkin Handbook is that it brings together some of the best Pushkinists from both continents under one cover, juxtaposing approaches, ideas, and even languages.”—Angela Brintlinger, Canadian Slavonic Papers
