National Identity in Russian Culture by Simon Franklin

Book Description

What is Russia? Who are Russians? What is 'Russianness'? The question of national identity has long been a vexed one in Russia, and is particularly pertinent in the post-Soviet period. For a thousand years these questions have been central to the work of Russian writers, artists, musicians, film-makers, critics, politicians and philosophers. Questions of national self-identity permeate Russian cultural self-expression. This wide-ranging study, designed for students of Russian literature, culture, and history, explores aspects of national identity in Russian culture from medieval times to the present day. Written by an international team of scholars, the volume offers an accessible overview and a broad, multi-faceted introductory account of this central feature of Russian cultural history. The book is comprehensive and concise; it combines general surveys with a wide range of specific examples to convey the rich texture of Russian cultural expression over the past thousand years.

Writing, Society and Culture in Early Rus, C. 950-1300 by Simon Franklin Writing, Society and Culture in Early Rus, C. 950-1300, Paperback (February 2010)

This is a comprehensive study of the origins and early uses of Russian writing.

Studies on Byzantine Literature of the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries by Simon Franklin Studies on Byzantine Literature of the Eleventh and Twelfth Centuries, Paperback (March 2009)

Histories of Byzantine literature tend to focus on the history of genres. The essays in this book challenge the traditional view.

Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond by Simon Franklin Holy Fools in Byzantium and Beyond, Hardback (April 2006)

The image of St Basil's Cathedral in Moscow's Red Square is a familiar Russian landmark. Saints such as Basil overturn the conventional concept of sainthood - what is saintly about them? This book aims to solve the mystery by exploring the figure of the holy fool in Byzantium and in later Russian history.

Master and Margarita by Simon Franklin Master and Margarita, Hardback (March 1992)

Long suppressed in its native land, this account of strange doings in Moscow in the 1930s provides us with the essence of the sceptical, trenchant, unadulterated voice of dissent.
