British Reception of Russian Playwright Aleksandr Nikolaevich Ostrovsky (1823-1886): Russian Drama on the British Stage
2011 0-7734-1459-2
This book explores the curious anonymity in the West of Russia’s foremost mid-nineteenth-century playwright, Aleksandr Nikolaevich Ostrovsky. It seeks explanations for this obscurity and, in turn, sheds further light on the wider relationship between Russian and English literature and the factors that affect the cross-cultural transfer of literary works.
