History of Russian Symbolism by Avril Pyman
Book DescriptionThis book is the first detailed history of the Russian Symbolist movement, from its initial hostile reception as a symptom of European decadence to its absorption into the mainstream of Russian literature, and eventual disintegration. It focuses on the two generations of writers whose work served as the seedbed of Existentialism in thought and of Modernism in prose and the performing arts, and reassesses their achievements in the light of modern research. At the centre of the study are the texts themselves, with prose quoted in English translation and poetry given in the original Russian with prose translations. There is a valuable bibliography of primary sources and an extensive chronological appendix. This book will fill a long-felt gap, and will be invaluable to students and teachers of Russian and comparative literature, Symbolism, Modernism, and pre-revolutionary Russian culture.

Pavel Florensky was, at one and the same time, a supremely gifted philosopher, mathematician, physicist, engineer and theologian. He was also a poet and wrote studies of history, language and art. His book "The Pillar and the Ground of Truth" is widely seen as a masterpiece of Russian Orthodox theology. This title offers an account of his life.
