About the Author

Viktor Shklovsky (1893-1984) was a leading figure in the Russian Formalist movement of the 1920s and had a profound effect on twentieth-century Russian literature. Several of his books have been translated into English and are available from Dalkey Archive Press, including Zoo, or Letters Not about Love, Third Factory, A Sentimental Journey, Energy of Delusion, Literature and Cinematography, and Bowstring.
Sidney Monas is Professor Emeritus of Slavic Languages at the University of Texas at Austin.

Reviews

"Shklovsky is a disciple worthy of Sterne. He has appropriated the device of infinitely delayed events, of the digression helplessly promising to return to the point, and of disguising his superbly controlled art with a breezy nonchalance. But it is not really Sterne that Shklovsky sounds like: it is an intellectual and witty Hemingway."

"One would be hard pressed to decide whether the book is more notable for what it says or for how it says it... Viktor Shklovsky's "A Sentimental Journey" is highly recommended." -- "Library Journal"
