Reviews

The well-known formalist literary scholar Yury Tynyanov was a master of form. In bracing prose style, his novel The Death of Vazir-Mukhtar dives deeply into the life of the Russian poet Alexander Griboedov and Russian cultural and political history. This translation by Anna and Christopher Rush brings the reader every unexpected turn of Griboedov's life and thoughts.--Sibelan Forrester, Swarthmore College
