Book Description

This book, first published in 1979, provides a systematic anatomy of Russia’s modern authors in the context of their society at the time. Post-revolutionary Russian literature has made a profound impact on the West while still maintaining its traditional role as a vehicle for political struggle at home. Professor Hingley places their lives and work firmly in the setting of the USSR’s social and political structure.
