Reviews
Weir's book is part of a long tradition in Slavic scholarship which has devoted itself to the study of literature as such, and to its creators. . . . The scholarship of this work shows broad knowledge of the European literary and philosophical traditions, an exceptional command of Russian literature and of the literary nuances of the Russian language.--Gary R. Jahn, University of Minnesota--Gary R. Jahn
"This book takes its place among the work of the most influential Tolstoy scholars."--Gary Saul Morson, author of Anna Karenina in Our Time: Seeing More Wisely--Gary Saul Morson
In this substantive examination of the major works of Tolstoy the author has achieved something quite remarkable: a completely new key to appreciating and understanding Tolstoy's artistry.--Amy Mandelker, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at CUNY--Amy Mandelker
