Available in Stock
The period between 1820 and 1841 is remembered as the great age of Russian literature, dominated by the towering figures of Pushkin and Gogol. At the time, however, their popularity was equalled and sometimes surpassed by writers such as Alexander Bestuzhev-Marlinsky and Alexander Veltman, whose work can be found here. Among the other tales of adventure, fantasy and passion in this well-rounded anthology are pieces by Lermontov, Pushkin and Gogol.
