Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Introduces readers to the highlights of Russian literature of the nineteeth century while simultaneously teaching them to read. It contains, in addition to the readings themselves, an English introduction to each author and proficiency-oriented activities.

From the Back Cover

Why Not Develop Both Linguistic and Literary Skills at the Same Time? The Golden Age is an interactive approach to studying language using the best-known Russian literary works of the nineteenth century. Highlights of major works like "Sevastopol" and "The Fatalist" introduce students to the literary canon, while raising their reading skills to the advanced level. Rosengrant and Lifschitz apply the techniques of language instruction to studying literature with over 300 questions pertaining to the readings, and a glossary of important words and how to use them properly. After completing this course your students will say with confidence, "Yes, I can read Russian literature." Readings include:
  • An English introduction to the author to provide a full background without spending valuable time on lecture or translation
  • Unobtrusive marginal glosses that minimize dictionary work without distracting from the story
  • Preparatory exercises that prepare students for difficult constructions in the following text
  • Proficiency-oriented activities that encourage students to engage the text in a creative manner, like staging a short play

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Stergios D. Marangos on July 3, 2009
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is simply a collection of great Russian literary works - from Dostoevsky, Lermontov, Tolstoy, Pushkin, Chehov (I may be missing an author or two) - in Russian. Yes, the text within is not in English, but in the original Russian form. I would recommend this anyone of mid to advanced level Russian proficiency, as on the margins of the texts it clarifies the meaning of many antiquated Russian words and phrases, and also provides a few definitions of some non-traditional words. These works are also much more beautiful to read in Russian than in English, however that may be a personal bias of mine. English translation tends to ruin most literature that has origins elsewhere. Either way, it is worth reading these authors in their original form if you have the ability.

This is great for the advanced student of the Russian language. I love the fact that they have vocabulary words in the margin, but they have less and less throughout the book, helping you to learn.
