This book, first published in 1943, is a literary anthology purposefully presenting a picture of the Soviet Union to a new audience in the West. It collects together a rich variety of pre-revolutionary Russian literature as well as a host of Soviet literature. Together they reveal the dynamic character of Russian literature, and provide a useful contrast between the two styles of pre- and post-revolutionary writings.
