Detailed Description

In this publication of her Inaugural Lecture, Pamela Davidson dedicates her professorial lecture to the memory of two "outstanding Russian scholars and remarkable individuals, whose contribution to our understanding of classical antiquity and Russian literature has been immense: Sergei Averintsev (1937-2004) and Mikhail Gasparov (1935-2005)."

Professor Davidson looks back and examines what classical antiquity meant for Russians in the period leading up to the revolution known as the Silver Age, and considers what happened to the legacy of this interest in Soviet times. She concludes on the present situation.
