Search: Slavic and Eurasian Studies - Literature & Linguistics, Available: In Print
Translated and edited by Alexei Lalo
This anthology of Russian erotic writings of 1900 to 1940 consists of texts previously unavailable in English. They all reflect the fascinating, albeit laborious, nature of the "birth of the body" in the Russian literature and culture of the period.
The monograph explores traditions of expressing the body and sexuality (designated as "silence" and "burlesque") throughout Russia's literary history, with a particular focus on how these traditions affect the literary modernization during the Silver Age (1890-1921) and subsequent émigré writing.
