Catriona Kelly takes an enlightening and nontraditional approach to exploring Russia’s unique literary traditions. Rather than proceeding chronologically, she uses Pushkin as the central figure in Russia’s literary genesis and analyzes how this Russian Shakespeare influenced his compatriots, the origins of Russian literature (including folktales), and how Russians regard their own place in literary history.
