"The Unknown Nineteenth Century" is a book series focused on the discovery of new literary facts in the history of nineteenth-century Russian literature. Each book in the series brings to light unknown texts and authors, unknown historical materials, unknown literary-historical trends, unknown formal features, etc. Each book is based in fundamental research, be it archival, computational, historical, linguistic, or otherwise. The scope of the series is broad chronologically: our nineteenth century stretches from Karamzin to Bunin and beyond. It is no less broad methodologically, and embraces a range of approaches from the philological to the sociological. Yet, the same thing can be said of every book in this series. Namely, that it came as a surprise to scholars and students in the field because what it describes was unknown to any of us before the publication of the book; rather than reinterpret the well-known, these books provide new material for new interpretations and narratives and force us to reexamine old ones.
