The Cambridge Companion to the Classic Russian Novel offers a thematic account of a tradition that produced some of the most influential novels of the western world. In newly-commissioned essays by prominent scholars, the work of Pushkin, Dostoevskii, Tolstoi, Turgenev, Bulgakov, Nabokov, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn and many others is described and discussed. There is a chronology and guide to further reading, and all quotations are in English. The volume will be invaluable for students, scholars and anyone interested in the Russian novel.

'The Cambridge Companion to the Classic Russian Novel is a provocative and challenging read ... Cambridge University Press has offered once again an excellent thematic study of a tradition that has produced some of the most profound, psychologically insightful, and spiritually challenging texts - those of the classic Russian novelist.' Moscow Tribune
