The volume covers the entire span of Russian literature, from the Middle Ages to the post-Soviet period, and explores all the forms that have made it so famous: poetry, drama and, of course, the Russian novel. A particular emphasis is given to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, when Russian literature achieved world-wide recognition through the works of writers such as Pushkin, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Chekhov, Nabokov and Solzhenitsyn. Covering a range of subjects including women's writing, Russian literary theory, socialist realism and emigre writing, leading international scholars open up the wonderful diversity of Russian literature.
With recommended lists of further reading and an excellent up-to-date general bibliography, The Routledge Companion to Russian Literature is the perfect guide for students and general readers alike.

"Intended for general readers and undergraduates, this book more than fulfills its promise; it offers surprising depth as well as the expected breadth of subject...Especially noteworthy is Cornwell's introduction, a tour de force of brevity coupled with a wealth of information that gives an accurate portrayal of Russia's literary heritage. Indispensable addition to all undergraduate collections, a welcome source for graduate students, and a worthy introduction to Russian literature for public libraries."
