Review: Teaching Nineteenth-Century Russian Literature

Teaching Nineteenth-Century Russian Literature: Essays in Honor of Robert L. Belknap edited by Deborah Martinsen, Cathy Popkin & Irina Reyfman was reviewed by Elizabeth Blake (Saint Louis University) in the Slavic and East European Journal, 59.3 (Fall 2015). Blake writes:

“This impressive volume on nineteenth-century literature with its twenty-two essays (on such classical Russian writers as Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov, Nikolai Gogol, Ivan Turgenev, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Lev Tolstoy, and Anton Chekhov) authored by experienced scholars who regularly teach the great books attests to the notable influence of the late Robert L. Belknap (Columbia University) on the field of Russian Studies in the United States.”
