Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Vladimir Nabokov (1899-1977) is perhaps best known in the West for Lolita, but Shrayer (Russian literature, Boston Coll.) writes that true scholars of Russian literature have always revered him for his short stories. Nabokov wrote stories throughout his life: during his youth as an ?migr? in England in the 1920s (his family left Russia shortly after the Revolution) through his later years in the United States, where he moved in 1940 (fleeing yet another war). Comparing the stories to those of Nabokov's "older contemporaries"AChekhov and Ivan BuninAShrayer places Nabokov squarely in the Russian literary tradition by painstakingly examining the stories' narrative components. In an approach that would no doubt have pleased Nabokov himself, Shrayer examines the stories through models of the reading process, incorporating Nabokov's own ideas of how one "reads." An important addition to Nabokov scholarship; recommended for larger public and academic libraries.ADiane G. Premo, Rochester P.L., NY

Review

"A brilliant reading of Nabokov's stories." --Review of Contemporary Fiction "Comparing the stories to those of Nabokov's 'older contemporaries'--Chekhov and Ivan Bunin--Shrayer places Nabokov squarely in the Russian literary tradition by painstakingly examining the stories' narrative components. In an approach that would no doubt have pleased Nabokov himself, Shrayer examines the stories through models of the reading process, incorporating Nabokov's own ideas of how one 'reads.' An important addition to Nabokov scholarship." --Library Journal "Shrayer's thoughtful and well-documented analysis of the Nabokov-Bunin relationship illuminates an important chapter in the development of twentieth-century Russian literature. His study as a whole will reward all who are keen readers of Vladimir Nabokov and of the Russian short story itself." --Russian Review
