Reviews

"Leighton describes this bibliography as one of the English-language products of the bicentennial observance of Pushkin's death and as an updating of Pushkin in English, produced by the Slavonic Section of the New York Public Library (1937). The compiler claims that the work contains 250 items that have not appeared in previous bibliographies, and estimates that some 1,700 studies and 900 translations of Pushkin's works have appeared through 1997. The bibliography accordingly has two main parts, Studies and Translations. Studies, arranged alphabetically by author, is subdivided into general and specific, with sections on verse works, drama, prose, and individual works. It also contains an interesting section on translation studies. The Translations section is organized into general collections, Pushkin collections, and individual works: lyric poetry, tales, narrative verse, drama, and prose. Both sections are comprehensive; for example, Leighton lists eight translations of the famous lyric "I Loved You" and 20 of The Bronze Horseman. Upper-division undergraduate and graduate students." - CHOICE

"Dr. Leighton's Pushkin bibliography is a godsend to Pushkinists, Romanticists, and Slavists in general. The bibliography is highly accessible and extremely helpful in cross-referencing its exhaustive citations, which are given in full at each mention. It is a model of accuracy and thoroughness. All bibliographies should be this good." - Professor Lewis Baby, University of Wyoming
