A history of Russian literature by Victor Terras( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This magisterial work, written by one of the world's foremost Slavic scholars, presents a survey of Russian literature from its beginnings in the eleventh century to modern times. Victor Terras argues eloquently that Russian literature has reflected, defined, and shaped the nation's beliefs and goals, and he sets his survey against a background of social and political developments and religious and philosophic thought. He traces a rich literary heritage that ranges from the early folklore, the medieval literatures, the dissident and emigre writing after the revolution, and the masterful realist fiction of Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Tolstoi, to the dissident literary movement that followed Stalin's death. - Publisher

The four plays that make up the Little Tragedies are deceptively simple. They are studies of greed, envy, obsession and human limitation. Each is a variation on the theme of impure love and death: the Miserly Knight is about a father killed by his love for gold, Mozart and Salieri is the story of a murder motivated by artistic envy; the Stone Guest is the story of Don Juan, killed by a statue of his latest conquest's dead husband; and the Feast in the Time of Plague is about the obsessive, excessive love of life itself
