Authenticity and Fiction in the Russian Literary Journey, 1790-1840 by Andreas Schonle

Book Description

This comprehensive study of the Russian literary travelogue, a genre that blossomed in the early 19th century, sheds new light on Russian literature and culture of the period. In the decades before and during the rise of the Russian novel, a new form of prose writing took hold in Russia: travel accounts, often fictional, marked by a fully develop narrators voice, interpretive impressions, scenic descriptions, and extended narrative. Prompted in part by the growth of leisure travel and in part by publication of western European examples of travel writing, the genre attracted the talents of numerous writers, including Radishchev, Karamzin, and Pushkin. In illuminating analyses of major texts as well as lesser known but influential works, Andreas Schonle surveys the literary travelogue from its emergence in Russia to the end of the Romantic era. His study offers new insight on the construction of the authorial persona and on the emergence of fiction in a culture that valued non-fiction writing.
