"A dazzling thesis, presented by one of the Slavic field's most creative and versatile cultural historians."-Caryl Emerson, Princeton University-- Caryl Emerson
"Gasparov's erudition and mastery of both fields are awe-inspiring, and one hopes he will continue to publish on the subject. . . . A particular familiarity with the subject matter allows Gasparov to narrate with a sense of authority rarely encountered in such interdisciplinary studies. . . . Gasparov reaffirms the significance in Russian culture, and his refreshing approach is to analyze musical works as complements-rather than accompaniments-to their literary counterparts."-Tony H. Lin, Slavic and East European Journal -- Tony H. Lin * Slavic and East European Journal *
