Goncharov's "Oblomov": A Critical Companion
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungNo other novel has been used to describe the "Russian mentality" or "Russian soul" as frequently as Ivan Goncharov's Oblomov, first published in 1859. This guide will enable readers to appreciate fully both the remarkable talent of this Russian writer and his masterpiece.The contributors to this volume begin from the premise that perhaps more than any other Russian writer of the nineteenth century, Goncharov needs rereadings and reevaluations. Accordingly, this volume balances the older, more traditional interpretations of Goncharov's most famous novel with the newer, more probing ones. All the essays were written specifically for this volume and are published here for the first time. The volume also includes an exhaustive introduction, many autobiographical materials, and letters never before translated into English. The closing section features an annotated bibliography.
