This book, first published in 1957, provides essential information on the entire field of Russian literature, as well as a great deal on literary criticism, journalism, philosophy, theatre and related subjects. Russian literary tradition has tended to blur the distinctions between social and political criticism on one hand, and literary criticism on the other, and even, to an extent, the distinction between philosophy and literature. Although intended primarily as a reference work, this book also contains much critical analysis.
