p. 323. ‘Tidings of me will go out over all great Rus’

Pushkin and the Russian literary canonlocked

  • Catriona Kelly


Pushkin set out to create a monument out of his work and ‘“Tidings of me will go out over all great Rus”: Pushkin and the Russian literary canon’ looks at the work that other writers left. How has Russian writers' work been presented by the literary establishment, publishers, critics, and censors? Changes in areas such as censorship in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries changed writers' output. The importance of Evgeny Onegin is discussed, and Pushkin's idea of authorship outlined.

What were public attitudes to writers?
