Reviews

"A dazzling thesis, presented by one of the Slavic field's most creative and versatile cultural historians."--Caryl Emerson, Princeton University

--Caryl Emerson
"Gasparov's erudition and mastery of both fields are awe-inspiring, and one hopes he will continue to publish on the subject. . . . A particular familiarity with the subject matter allows Gasparov to narrate with a sense of authority rarely encountered in such interdisciplinary studies. . . . Gasparov reaffirms the significance in Russian culture, and his refreshing approach is to analyze musical works as complements--rather than accompaniments--to their literary counterparts."--Tony H./I>--Tony H. Lin "Slavic and East European Journal "
