Review: By Fables Alone

By Fables Alone: Literature and State Ideology in Late Eighteenth- and Early Nineteenth-Century Russia by Andrei Zorin, translated by Marcus C. Levitt was reviewed in the Slavic and East European Journal, 59.2 (Summer 2015). Reviewer Carrol F. Coates writes:

“. . . Zorin commands a broad range of literary and historical literature and his essays give depth to the selected themes concerning the reigns of Catherine II and Alexander I. . . . [T]he difficult translation is generally skillful and it makes available for Anglophones a more profound examination of historical events discussed.”
