Reviews

". . . to be recommended without qualification . . . articles are linked by the common theme of influences on Pushkin and Pushkin's influence on others . . . great merit of this volume is that all contributors share an enthusiasm for their subject and a readability that is not always to be found in academic publications." - Scottish Slavonic Review

"Unified by their common goal of improving our understanding of Pu_kin's `impact as a writer, literary theoretician, and public figure,' these papers offer insights and potentially rewarding lines of inquiry. . . . they undoubtedly will provide a stimulus for further research and scholarship." - Slavic and East European Journal
