East-West Passage: A Study in Literary Relationships (Routledge Revivals) (Hardcover)
First published in 1954, East-West Passage is a detailed study of the literary relationship between Russia and the West.
Divided into two parts, the book focuses both on specific literary connections, as well as on broader social and political considerations. It traces the gradual increase in awareness of Russian literature in England and the United States through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and considers the material that emerged in response, such as doctoral dissertations and critical essays. The volume highlights changes in literary tastes over the years, and explores in detail Russia's influence on the West.
East-West Passage is ideal for those with an interest in the history of literature, as well as social and cultural history.
