Cambridge Companion to Pushkin by Andrew Kahn

Book Description

Alexander Pushkin stands in a unique position as the founding father of Russian literature. In this Companion, leading scholars discuss Pushkin's work in its political, literary, social and intellectual contexts. In the first part of the book individual chapters analyse his poetry, his theatrical works, his narrative poetry and historical writings. The second section explains and samples Pushkin's impact on broader Russian culture by looking at his enduring legacy in music and film from his own day to the present. Special attention is given to the reinvention of Pushkin as a cultural icon during the Soviet period. No other volume available brings together such a range of material and such comprehensive coverage of all Pushkin's major and minor writings. The contributions represent state-of-the-art scholarship that is innovative and accessible, and are complemented by a chronology and a guide to further reading.

Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories by Andrew Kahn Death of Ivan Ilyich and Other Stories, Paperback (January 2015)

In these six late stories Tolstoy explores human relationships and moral choices, raising profound questions about life in gripping fictional form. 'The Death of Ivan Ilyich' is an existential masterpiece, a harrowing tale of the final illness and death of a bourgeois lawyer. Newly translated, and with a wide-ranging Introduction.

Pushkin's Lyric Intelligence by Andrew Kahn Pushkin's Lyric Intelligence, Paperback (May 2012)

Pushkin's lyric intelligence is his capacity to transform philosophical and aesthetic ideas into poetry that questions the creative process. This first major study of his lyrics reveals the links between Pushkin's conceptual vocabulary and his intellectual life, and between his writing and the influences of French and English authors and movements.

Persian Letters by Andrew Kahn Persian Letters, Paperback (April 2008)

Two Persian travellers arrive in Paris and report on the European society of the Enlightenment in their letters home. With biting satire they compare East and West, while unsettling news from the harem provides a suspenseful plot of jealousy and passion. This is the first English translation based on the original text.
