Editorial Reviews

Review

"Through assiduous research, including the archives of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Rome, Munich, Berlin, and Marbach and by deftly combining the latest tools of literary theory and biography with those of poetics, Wachtel has been able to reveal new meanings and stylistic characteristics in Ivanov's poetic practice. A prime example of a scholar writing for other scholars, this work will be of interest to Slavists, Germanists, and comparatists, and to scholars studying literary theory and history of poetics."
—André Von Gronicka, University of Pennsylvania

He has published several articles on Ivanov and German literature in Russian, German, and English.

Format: Hardcover
Russian Symbolism seems to be a peculiar literary movement at first glance. But Russian Symbolists inherited very much from German romantics. I'm also a student of Russian Symbolism, especially of Ivanov's heritage, like the author. I was captivated by this book. This fascinating book has become for me a model of my research (especially the chapter 10 is splendid!): a "mirror" of what I think about Ivanov. An excellent book both for specialists and for simple literature lovers.
