Editorial Reviews

Review

“One of the most engaging, yet understudied, aspects of Russia’s ‘golden age’ is the playfulness of its verse, prose, and familiar letters. Peschio brings conceptual power, scholarly rigor, and an appropriately light touch to this important but elusive topic. An absolutely indispensable study of the creative irreverence of the Pushkin period.”—William Todd, Harvard University


“Original, imaginative, well researched, convincingly argued, and excellently written. This book fills an important lacuna in the history of Russian literature and culture of the early nineteenth century.”—Irina Reyfman, author of Ritualized Violence Russian Style: The Duel in Russian Culture and Literature


“This engaging volume by Peschio . . . is a welcome addition to a growing body of books dealing with the icon of Russian literature from an iconoclastic perspective.”—Choice 


“Theoretical approaches are handled with deftness and grace. . . . Peschio is also an exemplary archival scholar, scrupulous in his thoroughness and imaginative in the connections he is able to make among seemingly disparate discoveries. . . . Should be required reading for anyone with a serious interest in the literature, society, and culture of early nineteenth-century Russia.”—Alyssa Gillespie, Slavic and Eastern European Journal

About the Author

Joe Peschio is associate professor of Russian and coordinator of the Slavic languages program at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.
