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 On the Theory of Prose, Third Factory, Zoo, or Letters Not about Love, Energy of Delusion, Literature and Cinematography, and Bowstring.Richard Sheldon (1932-2014), an authority on Russian formalism and formalist critic Viktor Shklovsky, also translated Zoo, or Letters Not about Love, Third Factory, and Knight's Move. He graduated from the University of Kansas, received his JD and PhD degrees from the University of Michigan, and taught Russian language and literature for many years at Dartmouth College.
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"
