Description: Yale University Press, 2004. Review copy. As new in original dust-wrapper. Clean, bright and tight. Unused. D.w. a little grubby at back from storage. Used; Like New This examines the ways that writers and their works unnerved and irritated Russia's authoritarian rulers both before and after the Revolution. The author identifies ten historically powerful beliefs about literature and politics in Russia, which include a view of the artistic text as national territory, and the belief that writers must avoid all contact with the state. She offers a compelling analysis of the power of Russian literature to shape national identity despite sustained efforts to silence authors deemed subversive . Hardback.
