Abstract:

"A perceptive literary critic, a world-famous writer of witty and playful verses for children, a leading authority on children's linguistic creativity, and a highly skilled translator, Kornei Chukovsky was a complete man of letters. As benefactor to many writers including Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Iosif Brodsky, he stood for several decades at the very center of the Russian literary milieu. It is no exaggeration to claim that Chukovsky knew everyone involved in shaping the course of twentieth-century Russian literature. His voluminous diary, here translated into English for the first time, begins in pre-revolutionary Russia and spans nearly the entire Soviet era.

It is the candid commentary of a brilliant observer who documents fifty years of Soviet literary activity and the personal predicament of the writer under a totalitarian regime." "From detailed descriptions of meetings and friendships with such major literary figures as Anna Akhmatova, Maxim Gorky, and Isaak Babel to accounts of the wearying struggle with obtuse and hostile censorship, from the heartbreaking story of the death of the daughter who had inspired countless stories to candid political statements, the extraordinary diary of Kornei Chukovsky is a unique account of the twentieth-century Russian experience."--BOOK JACKET.
